This amazing growth was generated by a mixture of locally produced films as well as those from around the globe such as “Adieu les Cons,” “Conjuring : The Devil Made Me Do It,” “Demon Slayer: Mugen Train,” “Tom & Jerry,” “The Father” and “Envole-moi” have led the way as enthusiastic French cinemagoers, in the wake of the long Pandemic shutdown, have embraced the big screen experience.

“The expansive growth of moviegoing in France can serve as a North Star for other international territories” said Eric Marti, General Manager for France, Comscore. “The passion for and love of cinema has always been a source of pride for the French people and as more cinema locations have opened and great films are appearing on-screen, we have seen an astonishing rise in the level of moviegoing by patrons excited to once again enjoy the big screen experience.”
