Christmas With André screened at 480 cinema locations in the UK & Ireland and grossed £1,162,000 (source: comScore).

The event featured a recorded Christmas concert, a personal live tour of Rieu’s hometown of Maastricht and a live Q&A with the Dutch violinst and conductor.

CinemaLive Director & CEO, Peter Skillman, said: “We are once again incredibly proud of yet another record-breaking result for André Rieu at the UK & Irish box office. Cinema audiences have had the opportunity to experience two different offerings from André this year. Firstly, with the 2016 Maastricht Concert and now Christmas with André this past weekend”.
