Ranking of the most successful German films in 2019 by number of cinema goers

Over 4.6 million people went to see the perfect secret (Das perfekte Geheimnis), making it the most successful German film of 2019. It was followed by The boy has to get some air (Der Junge muss an die frische Luft) and Leberkäsjunkie.

Book to film

All three films were based on eponymous novels, with the first two being based on internationally popular children’s books. In fact, Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver was written by German author Michael Ende, who also wrote The Neverending Story. Bringing the conversation back to movies, currently there are over 1,700 cinemas in Germany. These house a total of 4,961 screens.

Falling admissions

Admissions in German cinemas dropped in recent years, amounting to 118.6 million in 2019. This may be due to various reasons, such as the rise and spread of video streaming services, as well as cinema tickets becoming more and more expensive, going from an average of 6 euros in 2008 to 8.63 euros per ticket in 2019.
