Attitudes towards the cinema are changing in Spain

The popularity of cinema does not seem to be too high among those aged 65 years and older. 20- to 24-year-olds, however, were more likely to watch a film at the theater, with 7.1 percent of respondents within this age group. Cinema screens in Spain have been decreasing over the last few years, with figures showing a drop of approximately 300 screens in the recent years.

The history of cinema and its millionaire revenues

Spain has its own movie production industry acclaimed by many cinema lovers. The Spanish production that featured the highest box office revenue as of October 2018 was “Champions” (Campeones), a comedy drama that gathered up approximately 19 million euros. “The best summer of my life” (El major verano de mi vida) is a reworked version of the Italian movie “Sole a Cantinelle”, and it featured box office figures of nearly 8 million euros in 2018.
