More than ten million admissions in Romanian cinemas in 2014
#Selfie, the most popular domestic release of 2014 in Romania

The year 2014 saw total admissions in Romania reach a threshold that could only have been dreamed of a few years ago: 10,142,389 tickets were sold in Romanian cinemas last year, according to the country’s most popular film website, Cinemagia.ro. Furthermore, 2014 saw a 12.5% increase over 2013 (with its 9,014,020 admissions).

The approximately 185 releases of 2014 earned €41.9 million, a 14.8% increase over 2013, when the total reached €36.5 million.

The most popular film of 2014 was The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, which needed only a few weeks to become the most successful Romanian release of the last five years, taking 486,000 admissions by the end of December. Following hot on the heels of Peter Jackson’s film were Interstellar [+see also:

, with 102,000 admissions. The ZAZU Film comedy proved so popular that the director’s team is now preparing a sequel, entitled How to Get Married in Three Days. Following in the wake of #Selfie, albeit rather far behind it, were Răzvan Săvescu’s America, Here We Come!, with 28,000 admissions, Radu Potcoavă’s The In-laws, with 23,300 tickets sold, and Nae Caranfil’s Closer to the Moon [+see also:

, with 20,000 admissions.

Among the biggest disappointments of 2014, in terms of popularity with Romanian audiences, were Caranfil’s film – whose promising plot (focusing on the biggest bank heist in communist Romania) and big-name casting (Vera Farmiga and Mark Strong) were met with indifference – and Andrei Gruzsniczki’s Quod erat demonstrandum [+see also:

. Hailed by critics as the best Romanian film of 2014 and the winner of several important awards, the black-and-white drama was seen by fewer than 5,000 Romanians.
