Moviegoing in Germany took a hit in 2022, decreasing to 73.5 million admissions, a drop of 33.1% to 2019 when admissions reached 110 million. When compared against 2018 figure of 96.1 million admissions, moviegoing in Germany was still down last year by 23.5%.
Naturally these decreases were also reflected in Germany’s 2022 box office of EUR €694 million (USD $749 million), which is off by 28.1% from the EUR €964 million (USD $1.04 billion) earned in 2019.
The year’s top film in Germany was “Avatar: The Way of Water” which managed to scoop up EUR €72 million in just 17 days before 2022 came to an end. Hollywood titles dominated the top 10 biggest films in Germany during 2022, taking all but one of the spots, which was reserved for “School Of Magical Animals 2.” Local productions had their second-best performance of the last five years.
