Although the price of cinema tickets in Iran is among the cheapest in the world, the number of Iranian movie-goers is small compared to many neighboring countries, let alone famous movie-producing countries.
Each Iranian annually goes to the movies 0.3 times on average. This is while the average ticket price in Iran is $1.8, while it is $11.5 in Kuwait and $12 in the UAE. On average, 25.5 million movie tickets are sold in Iran every year, grossing $45.5 million. 
The total box office sales in Iran are less than one-fourth of those in the UAE, a country whose population is eight times smaller than Iran’s, Financial Tribune’s sister publication Donya-e-Eqtesad reported.
Interestingly, more than 97% of ticket sales in Iran pertain to domestic films, unlike many other countries.
