I skimmed the article.  It looks like it has a lot of interesting information in it.  I find the box office interesting, but I never sat down and looked at the data over several decades.  (I've done this with music and video games.)   

The most interesting chart at a first glance was the one with ticket sales going back to the 40's.  I've heard, at various points, about factors that caused a decline in ticket sales, but it looks like the big one is from the 40's to the 60's.  What the history of cinema/entertainment normally says is that this corresponds with the rise of TV which seems like a logical cause.

I'll see if I can make time to actually read over it.  It looks interesting, but on the other hand it's extremely long.
