Film and cinema

The Swiss Film and cinema statistics provides comprehensive information about the cinema sector: operation, rental, number of visitors and production. They provide an overview of the film and cinema landscape in Switzerland and enable an evaluation of the diversity of films available in cinemas in the different regions as well as the implementation of automatic measures to support Swiss cinema (Confederation’s Film Promotion, “Success Cinema” programme). An extension to these statistics also includes  data on video-on-demand services (video on demand - VoD), also available in English.
The interactive chart below, updated every month, shows results by cinema week. It also contains provisional figures for the current cinema year. Detailed annual results from the film and cinema statistics are currently available in German and French only.
