Cinemas in Italy did really well in the first half 2015. Between January and June, there was a 5% increase in attendance with 51 million admissions against 49 million in the same period in 2014. Income amounted to 330 million euros against 302 million the previous year, an increase of 9.4%.
The figures were announced at the 5th “Ciné”, held from June 30th to July 3rd in Riccione. Organised by ANICA (Associazione Nazionale Industrie Cinematografiche Audiovisive e Multimediali), in collaboration with ANEC (Associazione Nazionale Esercenti Cinema) and ANEM (Associazione Nazionale Editori Musicali), this event is the place to be if you’re part of the Italian film industry. It allows distributors to show cinema owners the upcoming films which will be released theatrically in the coming months.
