    Pan-European exhibitor Kinepolis posted a positive 7.5% increase in cinema admissions across six territories it operates. This is in spite of the less strong film offer, the European football championship and fewer public holidays in 2016. The increase was primarily attributed to the Group’s acquisitions in 2015 and 2016, which were included in the Group’s annual figures for the first time. The five new cinemas opened in 2016 also contributed to the rise. Revenue generated by box office was a marginally softer 7.3% rise to reach € 175.6 million in 2016, primarily due to the changed country mix after expansion and the loss of part of the revenues from the Virtual Print Fee (VPF).

Despite the admissions growth, currency issues have led to an annual decline in box office for these 39 countries of 3.4% over last year.
