Norway B.O. bounces 15%

World Brief

During the first six months of 2003, cinema admissions in Norway gained 8% to 6.4 million, and gross box office receipts rose 15% to $58 million, according to statistics published Wednesday by Film & Kino, the Norwegian cinema association.

“It is the best result since 1983,” said Film & Kino managing director Lene Loeken, who attributes the increase to an unusually large number of well-performing local features.

Spearheaded by Arne Lindtner Naess’ “The Olsen Gang Jr. Under Water” and Peder Norlund’s “Wolf Summer,” with attendance of 365,000 and 245,000, respectively, domestic features controlled 19.9% of the market. Last year they accounted for 7.6%.
