The Da Vinci Code opens to packed houses around the country.
They were told by the Catholic Church to boycott cinemas this weekend as seeing Dan Brown’s story amounted to committing a sin (see previous post).
But the box office figures for the crucial first weekend audience in Poland shows that The DA Vinci Code is easily one of the most popular film in Poland so far this year.
In multiplexes alone, 279,000 people went to see the sinful movie, which translates into an estimated 350,000 tickets sold overall around the country.
