As mentioned in the Hollywood Reporter, MPAA chairman and CEO Chris Dodd earlier this year sternly
instructed the film industry to better serve Hispanic moviegoers, who more and more are becoming a
Hollywood lifeline. According to MPAA research, Hispanics make up 16% of the U.S. population yet
represent 25% or more of those buying tickets to the cinema. They also go to the movies more often than
any other ethnic group: Hispanic moviegoers go to the movies 5.3 times a year, on average. That
compares with 3.5 times for non-Hispanic whites and 3.7 times for African-Americans.
