Light House Cinema Wolverhampton is celebrating its best ever result for ticket sales in December.
Ticket sales realising over £27,000 were 48 per cent above budget and 61 per cent up on December 2018, an increase of over £10,000 in income from sales. Year to date ticket sales stand at 11.5 per cent up on the same period in 2018. The figures were released at a trustees Board Meeting on Wednesday 29 January.
Kelly Jeffs, Light House CEO, said: “These results are fantastic. Our figures reveal a continuing growth in ticket sales over the last seven years. The Christmas period saw Light House Cinema closed for just five days across the holiday, but figures reflect that the increase in ticket sales isn’t only due to the fact we chose to be open over Christmas, it’s also down to a brilliant increase in engaging new audiences along with our growing loyal supporters.
“Because of our reputation and excellent relationships with distributors we are able to get films on release, and box office hits such as Cats, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, 1917 and Frozen 2 were huge pulls over Christmas, along with Little Women and The Personal History of David Copperfield proving to be the perfect antidote to January.
“Our volunteers have worked so hard across the Christmas period and we’re really grateful to them. We have some fantastic films coming up including the return of Little Women and Joker, and are excited to announce screenings of Michael Ball and Alfie Boe’s Back Together concert which will be hugely popular and with the BAFTAs and Oscars fast approaching, we’re looking forward to building on our success and offering our customers a dynamic viewing experience for 2020”.
