In July 2016, the movie-going audience was mostly made up of men (53.8% compared to 54.1% in June 2016).
Thanks to the School Holidays, the proportion of individuals under 15 in the movie-going audience increased (15.8% in July 2016 compared to 12.5% in June 2016). Cumulatively, over the seven last months of 2016, the share of 3-14 years old reached 14.1%.

This is mainly due to the share of schoolchildren, students in the movie-going audience (+3,8 percentage points compared to June 2016).
