UK & Ireland

Britain's cinema market is undrgoing radical change. Freed from the cost of 35mm film prints, film distributors are no longer demanding big seating capacities from cinemas, leaving exhibitors free to cater to an increasingly discerning older audience. Taking a cue from more comfortable and luxurious seating - whether electric recliners or boutique cinema sofas for two - refreshment offers are being upgraded to match. Average ticket prices are riising faster than inflation, and concession spends per head nearly twice as fast. The higher profits available, and developers' needs for footfall-generating tenants in a difficult environment for physical shopping, are supporting high levels of investment in new cinemas.

These and other trends are reviewed in this latest edition which, as ever, includes data on film production and distribution, trends in cinema numbers and revenues, and  detailed financial data covering the leading cinema chains. Five year forecasts of screen numbers, admissions and box office complete the package.
