Thus, French theaters sold 62 million tickets in the first five months, a third less than in 2019, according to figures from the National Center for Cinematography and the Moving Image (CNC).

Beyond the loss of habit of going to dark rooms, it is the price of tickets followed by the lack of interest in films and competition with streaming which explains the absence of the French, according to a survey of the CNC. Cinemas were still able to count on blockbusters to make up for this difficult start to the year, like Top Gun: maverick which already counts more than 3.8 million admissions, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness or Tea Batman.
