ODEON had roughly 3.4 million admissions. In total, cinemas in Norway reported 11.29 million moviegoers that year. That was an decrease of around 830 thousand compared to the previous year.

Especially younger people tended to go to the cinema. According to a survey from 2018, the share of 9 to 15-year-old Norwegians visiting the cinema at least once a year amounted to 92 percent in 2018. By contrast, only 44 percent of people aged 67 to 79 years saw movies in cinema in the preceding 12 months.
