China's box office rang up takings of 1.85 billion yuan (about $291 million) during the National Day holiday, which ended on Wednesday, a record high.

This is an increase of about 60 percent from the same period last year, according to the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SARFT).

The biggest success this year was "Goodbye Mr. Loser," a rom-com about a man's journey to find true love.

The film made about 593 million yuan in ticket sales over the seven days.

"Lost in Hong Kong," by Xu Zheng, and "Chronicles of the Ghostly Tribe," an action-thriller by Lu Chuan, the director of "City of Life and Death," were among audience favorites over the holiday, reaping more than 500 million yuan each, according to SARFT data.
