In November, French cinemas welcomed nearly 15 million spectators. This is the best month for theaters in terms of attendance since the start of the health crisis.
According to CNC estimates, French cinemas recorded 14.47 million admissions in November, 330,000 more than in October (14.14 million) and 160,000 more than in July (14, 31 million), “by far the best two months since the 17.58 million spectators gathered in February 2020, the last full month before the first theaters close”, precise French Film.
Even if this performance is worth highlighting, we are still below the usual scores for November, whether it is 2019 (20.4 million), 2018 (18.7 million), 2017 (17.3 million ), 2016 (17.5 million) or 2015 (17.3 million). We thus note a decline of 20.6% compared to the average of the last five years and of 29% compared to 2019.
This record was made possible by strong engines like Les Éternels, which drew 1.5 million spectators in four weeks. The Marvel blockbuster finds itself between the final careers of Black Widow (1.7 million) and Shang-Chi (1.4 million). French cinema is not to be outdone. Aline sold 1.1 million tickets in three weeks.
As for the phenomenon Les Bodins in Thailand, it exceeded 900,000 fans in just two weeks. James Bond has also held up over time with Die Can Wait, garnering more than 600,000 admissions in November for nearly 4 million accumulated since its release on October 6. We should also note the very good score of Encanto, the best start of an animated film since Frozen 2 in November 2019 with more than 525,000 spectators.
“Over the first 11 months of the year, that is to say between May 19 and November 30, 2021 for the period of activity of theaters, attendance amounts to 75.29 million admissions, versus 65.22 million over the first 11 months of 2020, counting as a reminder five months of theatrical closure.In addition, the market share of French films was 41.7% over the period, that of American feature films, at 37.1%, and those of other titles at 21.1% “, analyzes Le Film Français.
