Average cinema ticket price in Sweden 2010-2018

Higher prices – more visitors

Now one might think that higher prices would mean fewer visitors to the cinema. However, the share of Swedes visiting the cinema during the period from 2010 to 2017 actually increased. While 63 percent of the Swedes had been to the movies at least once in the year of 2010, the number peaked in 2017 at 69 percent. In addition, particularly women frequented the cinema with more than 70 percent of Swedish women going at least once in 2018, as opposed to 64 percent of the men. Watching movies in the cinema was furthermore most popular with younger generations, with more than 90 percent of Swedes between 16 and 29 years going at least once in 2018.

A thriving industry

While people in general spent more money on a movie experience, the cinema industry in Sweden seems to thrive. While the industry generated a revenue of 233 million U.S. dollars in 2010, it is forecasted to reach 316 million U.S. dollars as of 2019. Alongside the increase in revenue, the amount of money on advertising spending in cinemas has also overall increased, amounting to roughly 135 million Swedish kronor in 2018.
