British cinema chain Cineworld saw its revenues in summer 2021 almost reach pre-pandemic levels, the company’s trading update published on Monday, shows.

Cineworld has theatres at 752 sites across 10 countries and box office and concession revenue performance for the whole group in October 2021 was 90% of that in the same month in 2019. 

The UK and Ireland part of the business even outperformed pre-Covid19 performance, with revenues climbing to 127% compared to two years ago.

Cineworld credited the impressive recovery to its ‘excellent slate’ of movies including Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Venom, No Time to Die and Dune.

More major blockbusters incoming

The cinema chain added that there are still ‘major blockbusters’ to be released in 2021, including Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Encanto, Spider-Man: No Way Home, The King’s Man, Sing 2 and The Matrix Resurrections, which it ‘anticipates to perform very well subject to there being no deterioration in the Covid-19 situation’.
