2015 A Strong Year For Local Danish Cinema

Despite a report by Deloitte which showed that the profitability of Danish film producers had plummeted by 80% between 2012 and 2014, figures for 2015 show a general upturn in both cinema attendance and market share for Danish films.

A total of 14.1 million tickets were sold at Danish theatres in 2015 against 12.2 million in 2014, marking almost a 15% increase in box office receipts, and the second highest total since 1982.

However, the big news is that the 24 Danish films released last year sold 4,212,500 tickets, giving it a market share of 29.7% and the second best result for Denmark since 1978.
