Italian cinemas register an increase in viewers of close to 600,000 in the first months of 2023 compared to 2019, according to an official statement from the MovieMedia advertising agency.
The distributed statement states that “This testifies to the public’s renewed enthusiasm for going to the movies, with an increase in tickets that we have not seen in years.”
