From silent screen to multi-screen

A history of cinema exhibition in Britain since 1896

Stuart Hanson

Published by Manchester University Press

Studies in Popular Culture MUP

  • The book is the first comprehensive survey of cinema exhibition in Britain: what little previous research that has been done on exhibition tends to focus on case studies of particular periods and regions where statistical evidence exists Its social-historical approach means that it will be valuable for social historians as well as film studies scholars and students in both film and media studies The book places the history of cinema-going in wider social, cultural and economic contexts, and significantly takes into account how changes in the structure of the film industry, especially as regards the exhibition sector, impacted upon the cinema-going experience
