Scoring last-minute tickets to an Orioles or Ravens game would be as easy as a stroll downtown under a bill introduced in the City Council yesterday that would lift a prohibition against reselling tickets within a mile of the Camden Yards sports complex. Supporters said they hope the measure would boost the Orioles' lagging attendance by making it easier for ticket holders to unload their extra tickets among the throngs of fans outside the park, rather than throwing them out and leaving seats empty.

Or because the first two weekends of the summer season at the box office didn't exactly create fireworks.Underneath any immediate optimism about the box-office boost that "Jurassic Park" and "Last Action Hero" could lend to the summer is a real anxiety about the continuing decline in the moviegoing audience -- specifically the all-important 13- to 25-year-old segment:* Year after year, the film industry sees a steady erosion in the number of movie tickets sold.

After a delay of one day, the Maryland Lottery held its drawing last night for Countdown to Millions new game featuring the Maryland Lottery's best odds ever at winning $1 million - and at $20 apiece, its most expensive tickets ever.

But with sales short of the lottery's 420,000- ticket goal, the drawing was pushed back 24 hours.
