Middletown shows poor return at the Irish Box Office

Middletown, which starred Matthew Macfadyen, was shown in only four cinemas and generated €14,800.

Irish cinemagoers turned out in droves to lap up Hollywood blockbusters last year, but locally made films failed their big-screen test. Despite the government giving more than €40m to the film industry, Irish movies took only €5m from the country’s €104m box-office bonanza.
