Coronavirus knocked on Greece's door (officially) on 26th February. This had an immediate impact on cinema attendance, since cumulative admissions for the weekend of 27th February – 1st March dropped to 57,466. The previous low for early late February-early March had been 74,192 admissions, back in March 2014. However, another factor was the Monday public holiday – in Greece the Monday at the beginning of Lent (7th week before Easter) is a public holiday called Clean Monday. Thanks to the good weather and the spectre of coronavirus, Greeks had many reasons to avoid cinemas. Admissions plummeted and all films aiming for some sort of milestone immediately lost sight of it. Notably, the weekend witnessed the 7th smallest photo finish since 2008:

 

Photo-finishes (Top 2 within 1,000 admissions of each other, since 2008)

The White Crow 9,622 Le Grand Bain 9,606 16 13-16/06/2019

Broken City 11,653 Olympus Has Fallen 11,283 370 28-31/03/2013

 

For a week or so, the official count of total cases remained less than 10. However, the following week they started rising by about 10 per day. Of course, I need to stress that these are official figures and, in reality, there must have been many more undetected cases. The box office took another hit, since not even two high-profile Hollywood releases could keep it afloat. Attendance dropped further to 55,559 admissions, With total cases having reached 100, the government closed schools and universities on 11th April and cinemas were closed on Saturday, 14th April, along with theaters and other businesses. No information has been published for the first two days of that weekend (12th and 13th Arpil). Cinemas of course remained closed this weekend as well and a curfew has been imposed (with certain exceptions) for 2 weeks, until Monday, 6th April. Therefore there will be another 2 weeks at least with no results.

 

Hopefully this will all end soon.

Welcome back to the Greek box office thread! It's been six whole months since I last posted here. The Wuhan coronavirus pandemic has truly devastated us all. I have an unpleasant feeling that the box office will take years and years to fully recover. I'm worried we might even see some studios go bankrupt. Life will never be the same unfortunately, thanks to this manufactured crisis (no, I'm not saying the virus is manufactured, I'm saying the crisis is). Nevertheless, after six months, and with major releases starting to re-appear, it's worth having a go at returning to normality and hoping that we manage to put the whole thing behind us. Cinemas re-opened in Greece on the 4th of June. From then and up to the 27th of August, no film managed to score a single weekend above 10,000 admissions. Weekly reporting will resume with the weekend of August 27-30, which is when 'Tenet' was released.

 

Weekend of 27th–30th August 2020

 

Rank Title Weekend admissions % Change Screen count / Change Total admissions Week
1 Tenet 28,442 162 40,230 1

9 Capone 650 -85.9% 28 -36 7,455 2
10 Jungle Beat 610 +117.1% 10 -6 9,716 4

 

Weekend cumulative admissions: 48,496. 'Tenet' was the first high-profile flick to be released since March. Christopher Nolan doesn't deliver the mega-hits that he used to anymore. Perhaps its the choice of actors or its the lack of an intriguing storyline. Of course, this pic would've done better in normal times but it still opened far lower than 'Dunkirk' which was released exactly 3 years ago. In other news, 'Trolls 2' is lagging far behind its predecessor, which opened back in Novermber 2016 with 24,056 admissions and ended up with 99,384 admissions in total.

 

Weekend of 3rd–6th September 2020

8 Si yo fuera rico 1,646 8 1,646 1

10 Figli 686 -71.0% 5 -10 7,677 3

 

Weekend cumulative admissions: 55,253. Five new release entered the Top 10, while the top holdovers performed relatively well. 'Tenet's' drop was good thanks to a Wednesday start last week. The film will definitely surpass 100K admissions. 'After 2' opened to less than half of its predecessor, which finished its run with 100,956 admissions after an April 2019 debut. 'Trolls 2' is in a similar situation, with a predecessor near 100K admissions and itself struggling to make half of that. Oh dear...

 

Weekend of 10th–13th September 2020

 

Rank Title Weekend admissions % Change Screen count / Change Total admissions Week
1 Mulan 18,417 212 18,417 1
2 Tenet 9,539 -47.0% 100 -29 95,384 3

9 Άλυτη [GR] 609 3 609 1
10 The Apartment (re-release) 603 -70.2% 6 -6 9,295 3

 

Weekend cumulative admissions: 50,364. 'Mulan' scored one of the lowest openings of all time for a live-action Disney film, on par with 'The Jungle Book' (20,488 admission), 'Tron: Legacy' (19,262 admissions) and slightly better than 'Alice 2' (13,083 admissions). Of course, it got nowhere near 'Beauty and the Beast' (57,900 admissions) or 'Cinderella' (44,917 admissions). This was despite an ultra-wide opening. Meanwhile, the 100K-admission milestone is guaranteed for 'Tenet', although it seems unable to get much further than that. 'After 2' will barely earn more than half of its predecessor's total, a fate that is yet uncertain for equally troubled 'Trolls 2'. The performance of every other film has been so dismal I can't be bothered to talk about it.

Weekend admissions were 29,382 – the lowest since the start of the new season – thanks to a storm that caused severe damage and floods in many parts of the country and thanks to a coordinated campaign of terror by the government and the mainstream media regarding the "second wave" of the pandemic. 'Mulan' and 'Tenet' fell by 70%+ as did 'Trolls 2'. Even 'Il traditore' plummeted, despite tripling its screen count. 'Scoob!' and 'Greenland' were in a close race for first place. The formal 4-day weekend was won by the prior, but the latter won when taking into account previews. 'Tenet' reached 100K admissions and 'After 2' reached 50K admissions. Don't expect them to reach any other milestones. If the cinema crisis continues in the longer term, the financial viability of studios and exhibitors is gonna be in big trouble.

This was the third worst weekend since the end of the lockdown period, with 20,669 admissions. The only weekends with fewer admissions were the two first post-lockdown weekends in early June, with 12,070 admissions. 'Scoob' dominated for a second weekend with a decent hold. Another animated film, 'Trolls 2', also achieved a decent hold, as is common with kid flicks. Most other holdovers plummeted, with the exception of Italian film 'Il traditore' and 1974 re-release 'Chinatown'. Only two new films made it into the Top 10, 'The War with Grandpa' and 'Wet Season'. The second one was relatively more successfull, since its 184-admission per-screen average was the only one in the Top 10 above 100 admissions. Things look grim for the next few weeks (if not months), with another lockdown looming...

Cumulative admissions fell to an abysmal tally of 9,815. These are numbers no one has ever seen before and by far the worst since the end of lockdown (since ever!). There is little hope that anything will improve since, on top of all this, many major blockbusters are being pushed further back into the distant future. 'Scoob!' has now threepeated on top, 'Mulan' is back in second place and 'Tenet' achieved the smallest drop of the Top 10. Most films plummeted by more than 55% while the only new opener, 'Vivarium' couldn't have performed worse.
