box office is a place where tickets are sold to the public for admission to an event. The people who sell the tickets at the movie theaters worked in “offices” that were shaped like tiny “boxes” back in the old times. Therefore, if a movie was a “box office blowout,” then it sold out the entire ticket stand. That was how the term “box office” came into use when talking about how many tickets were sold for a movie.

By extension, the term is frequently used, especially in the context of the film industry, as a synonym for the amount of business a particular production, such as a film or theatre show, receives. The term can also mean factors which may influence this amount, as in the phrases “good box office” and “bad box office”

Box office business is usually measured in terms of the number of people who see it or the amount of money raised by ticket sales (revenue). The projection and analysis of these earnings is very important for the creative industries and often a source of interest for fans. This is highly predominant in the Hollywood movie industry.
