Downton Abbey: A New Era took top slot at the Australian box office last week, moving The Lost City down one slot. Fantastic Beasts which took top slot before Easter but has lost 30% of its audience each weekend since.
But even though that might make it look like older audiences are finally returning to cinemas it’s worth pointing out that Downton in its first week made $1.9m off 466 screens whereas, last week, The Lost City had second-week figures of $2.89m, almost a million more. Lost City took $3.38m in the Easter weekend surge. Fantastic Beasts topped the box office the week before with $5.24m.
