Austrians don’t like to visit cinemas anymore

cinemaThe cinemas in Austria have more and more problems to survive.

Also in the past year the number of visitors decreased. The statistics for the whole country of Austria show a loss of 8 percent visitors.

The most popular movie in 2007 was the hollywood production “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” with Johnny Depp. But even that movie could not reach the magical number of one million.

There are 34 cinemas in Vienna at the moment. Good new movies are missing. That should be the reason of the bad economical situation, think the experts.

Also the big cinemas now start to show the movies of the small arthouse cinemas, which brings those small operators in deep trouble.
