June 2019 was a recording breaking month for Event Cinema in the UK & Ireland taking over £6m at the Box Office. CinemaLive’s Take That – Greatest Hits Live, returned to the big screen and was the biggest event of that month, storming the Box Office, taking over £2m. It is now currently the highest grossing Event Cinema of 2019 and enters the Top Ten (at #7) of biggest titles of all time.
Following the success of 2018, the year started strongly with Andre Rieu’s 2019 New Year Concert From Sydney superseding its previous record taking £1.9m at Box Office. Box Office across the whole industry saw a dip in the early part of the year but we are now seeing growth in all areas, particularly in Event Cinema.
National Theatre are having a strong year with All About Eve and All My Sons (currently the third and fourth highest grossing titles of 2019) and those who attended CineEurope, will know there is still so much more to come for Event Cinema this year.
