Chinese mainland box office in 2015 has surpassed 29.7 billion yuan ($4.6 billion).
The figure is not only a 48.5-percent increase compared to the same period last year, it also beats the mainland's total box office revenue from 2014.
Domestic films generated around 18 billion yuan ($2.83 billion), accounting for more than 60 percent of this year's total so far.
Business insiders are crediting the boom to improved quality of domestic films and promotions.
Fast and Furious 7 is currently China's highest-grossing film of all time, followed by the domestically-made Monster Hunt.
Chinese box office is expected to reach 40 billion yuan ($6.3 billion), by the end of 2015, as a number of big titles are scheduled to hit theatres later this year.
Among them are highly-anticipated home-grown films like Lost in Hong Kong, Mr. Six, The Ghouls, as well as Hollywood titles Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, Pixels, and Ant-Man.
