The Cinema Exhibitors Association of Nigeria (CEAN) says it recorded sales of N819 million across cinemas within the country in January.

Ope Ajayi, the association’s national chairman, disclosed the figure on Monday in Lagos during an interview with NAN.

“We had an increase in sales in January with N819,154,913.00. The month was a beautiful one, with 324,408 total number of admissions at the cinemas,” he said.

“The top five films for the month of January were: Battle on Buka Street, Ijakumo, Avatar, Black Panther and Plane.”

Ajayi added that movie lovers should watch out for films such as “Titanic Remastered, Antman vs Wasp Quantumania, Cocaine Bear, Luther, Die Hart and Love in a Pandemic.”

“February promises to be better with thrilling and action packed films for the month,” he said.

The association had earlier revealed that Funke Akindele’s ‘Battle On Buka Street’ is Nollywood’s highest-grossing film in history.

The movie, which raked over N640 million after nine weeks in theatres, was released last year December.
