Exhibition Sheffield W 1 Burnley 3 York 1 Luton 0 Monday, 27, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Entertainment grows as world industry Soccer scores By FRED FERRETTI New York Times Service NEW YORK Football in its many forms on televi- sion is a Sunday afternoon epidemic of leisure. TV itself is a nightly narcotic. The theatre attracts people everywhere with its inven- tions and its revivals. The spread of vast thematic amusement parks is to some a blight but to others a joy. Cir- cuses and bullfights and championship tennis and dog races divert us. And because sports are so much with us, they are perforce big business. Entertainment may vary throughout the world, influenced by customs and by changes in customs, by wants and by costs, but there is little doubt that it is a growth in- dustry .and sometimes an export industry. American rock and soul music, for example, can be heard in Europe, Africa and Brazil, and Jesus Christ Superstar was a hit in Tokyo. Travelling exhibitions of pain- tings by Picasso have likewise drawn crowds worldwide, par- ticularly in Tokyo, which has more than art galleries on the Ginza. In Britain people are spending with a frenzy "in a manner that might be ex- pected from an affluent socie- ty that gets a daily warning that hard times are as one Londoner commented. Britain has also used the attraction of its excellent West End theatres to promote London show tours in North America. In Paris the most sought after entertainment is television, which has grown rapidly. In 1950 there were 297 sets in France; by 1960 one million, and today in a country of 52 million people, and three state owned channels, 13 million sets. This growth has forced a face changing of the French movie industry, which no longer exhibits in large many seated houses, but has carved up big houses in mini theatres many of them devoted to pornography. The French cinema industry last' year produced 200 films and there has also been an increase of public interest in fine arts, particularly French impressionists; a show of 40 paintings at the Grand Palais recently drew visitors a day. Inflation has put the best of opera and theatre seats out of the reach of most Italians, but it has not lessened Italian interest in movies Italy provides an estimated 49 per cent of the total common market movie audience. One reason advanced for this is the poor quality of Italian television, which is soap opera dominated. In West Germany, where leisure is often a well plann- ed activity, such as educational hobby courses, poiitican cabarets have come into a vogue again in the last decade, but the election of a Social Democratic Free Democratic government robb- ed many left liberal cabarets their raison d'etre, and some, such as the Munich Plaugh and Shoot Company, have closed in recent years. Planning is the essence of entertainment in Moscow too, where all activities are state subsidized, and are con- sidered logical extensions of the Soviet propaganda effort. Movies, most of them with themes from the 1918 20 civil war, are the Russian "Westerns" complete with the fancy gunplay and horsemanship. The movies the Soviet Union does import from the west are those that can be sold to the populace as anti capitalist statements "Oklahoma Crude" and "Slaves" for ex- ample. Russian TV is a nightly ex- ercise in folkdancing, with weekends devoted to soccer and hockey. However tickets to the Bolshoi Ballet are relatively cheap with the most expensive seat costing about J4.50 and tickets to .movies are likewise inexpen- sive, with seats ranging from about 20 cents during the day to about 50 cents at night. Entertainment in West Africa, is a mixture of traditional dances and music, overlaid with new stage productions, carnivals, art and cultural'festivals and the beginnings of a movie in- dustry in Nigeria and Senegal. Last year's Muhammad Ali George Foreman boxing match in Kinsasha, Zaire proved to Africans that world interest and interesting amounts of money can be attracted to the emerging con- tinent. In Japan the entertainments also are a mixture of the traditional and modern with kabuki and sumo wrestling remaining attractive despite the inroads made by baseball and an increasing invasion of American, European and Brazilian music, theatre and ballet. The traditional Noh Play, a 500 year old symbolic mask play, is still dominant in the theatre, although television affects tastes, and children Mortgage adjusted are particularly keen on monster shows. In China too, the new com- petes with the old, except that what is new in present day China is a theatre devoted to the struggles of the proletariate against the landlord. What is old is traditional opera with princes and princesses and emperors and the exposure of most of the Chinese people to it is at best minimal. Operas combine both Chinese and Western instruments in line with Chairman Mao Tse tung's dictum to "make foreign things serve China." Music of a different order is the backbone of Rio De Janeiro's entertainment world. in the form of tapes and records is the fastest growing industry in Brazil. Last year the recording business had gross sales of million, an increase in a year of 35 per cent. paramount Tonight Tues. at and p.m. POSITIVELY LAST 2 DAYS An all I film...
