LONDON -- U.K. boxoffice admission figures for February fell 21% from the same period last year, according to figures released Tuesday by the Cinema Advertising Assn. Admissions in February hit 15.03 million, down 8% from January's total of 16.3 million. But the month boasted the highest weekly average (3.76 million) since February 2002, which had the highest boxoffice admissions on record since 1969 thanks to Monsters, Inc. and Ocean's Eleven, two of last year's biggest hits. According to the CAA, the top five movies in the United Kingdom during February were United International Pictures' Catch Me If You Can (£11.1 million, or $17.5 million), Warner Bros.' Two Weeks Notice (£10.3 million, or $16.25 million), Buena Vista's Chicago (£6 million, or $9.46 million), Entertainment's Final Destination 2 (£5 million, or $7.88 million) and UIP's The Wild Thornberrys Movie (£4.8 million, or $7.57 million). With admissions running at 31.3 million through the second month, the CAA predicts that cinema admissions this year will remain on course to top the 180 million mark.
