Cinema ticket prices: average annual price in the United Kingdom (UK) 2000-2019

In 2018, the average price of a cinema ticket in the United Kingdom dropped for the first time since 2001. The annual average price in 2019 was 7.11 British pounds, down from 7.22 British pounds in 2018 and the lowest it has been since 2015.

The start of a cinema revival?

Many in the cinema industry had been fearing the worst when video-on-demand giants Netflix (and other VOD providers) seemed to be taking over the market, with the number of households subscribing to Netflix in the UK increasing steadily every year. The rise in cinema ticket prices over the past couple of decades seemed to reflect this. However, 2018 saw the highest number of annual cinema admissions in the UK in recent years, so could this be the start of a cinema comeback?

Topping up revenue with drinks and snacks

Cinema tickets vary in price from region to region. There are also discounts at most cinemas, including 2 for 1 promotions and family discounts. Cinemas only get a small percentage of the box office revenue, and so many depend on the profits made by selling drinks and snacks.
