Average cinema ticket price in the Netherlands 2009-2017

In 2017, a movie ticket in the Netherlands on average cost about 8,40 euros. This was a decrease in comparison to the previous year, but an increase in comparison to all years before that. Despite the increase in cinema ticket prices, the Dutch continued to regularly visit cinemas. Along with the ticket prices, the number of cinema admissions also grew. In 2018, together the Dutch visited cinemas just under 36 million times, or roughly twice a year.

 Who visits the cinema? 

  Going to the cinema was particularly popular among the 18- to 23-year-olds, who made up about one quarter of all cinema visitors. Teenagers aged 12 to 17 were the least frequent visitors: of all cinema admissions, only four percent fell into this age bracket.

European comparison

  Prices of cinema tickets varied markedly from country to country. Moviegoers in neighboring country Belgium were slightly better off than their Dutch counterparts, as a cinema ticket would set them back an average of 8.23 euros. To the east, Germans on average paid 8.63 euros, or slightly more than the Dutch. Going to the cinema was particularly expensive in Finland. On average, a ticket here would cost just over 11 euros.
