Con la finalidad de analizar la estacionalidad del cine español frente al americano, se realiza un análisis comparativo entre variables tales como fechas de estreno en cine, evolución del número de espectadores, tendencia de las series y estudio de la estacionalidad en ambos grupos. Los resultados muestran que, en el caso de las películas españolas, la estacionalidad es mucho mayor y además los estrenos se concentran en épocas que no coinciden con los periodos de mayor ocio de los espectadores. / With the aim of analysing the seasonality of the Spanish and American film industries, a comparative analysis was made between variables such as, release dates in cinemas, and trends in audience figures. The results show that Spanish films have a higher seasonality level than American ones, and films are not released during holiday periods in which consumers have more leisure time.
