The national association of cinema owners, ProCinema, say the European football championships over the summer of 2016 may be to blame.

The most popular films in the country last year were the Secret Life of Pets, then The Revenant, with the local production of Heidi coming in third.

Some question if the proliferation of streaming services and large HD TVs in the home could also be affecting cinema visits.
