Available reports indicate that the number of tickets sold in 2015 has raised at 8.8% comparing to the previous year. Presumably, this gain is related to publications about increased amount of releases. (The amount of publications has increased from to 187 to 216). In this case, each of 29 movies is supposed to be watched by at least 59.4 thousand viewers. In the meantime, the average attendance of this year releases is around 14.5 thousand viewers, accordingly to the reports. The materials reveal the fact that more and more Ukrainians began going to the movies (or the fans began to visit the cinema more often).
The total box office increased by 31% in the national currency due to the rise of the ticket cost in UAH. At the same time the dollar box office decreased by 32%.
