UK CINEMA ADMISSIONS UP
Despite this awful recession, UK cinema admissions reached 83.4 million in the first half of 2009; an increase of 14.8% when compared to the same period last year.
Although we're currently unable to afford to visit our local cinema, we're pleased to see that cinema-going is holding up so well and often cast an envious eye towards Derby's Quad cinema. During the course of this month, film buffs have a chance to see Von Trier's controversial ANTI CHRIST, Almodovar's BROKEN EMBRACES, Claire Denis' 35 SHOTS OF RUM, Duncan Jones' MOON, COCO BEFORE CHANEL, MESRINE: KILLER INSTINCT, Coffin Joe's EMBODIMENT OF EVIL and check out the following special screenings: THIS SPORTING LIFE, BARBARELLA, VERTIGO and BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S.
If you live within affordable reach of a good cinema complex, you don't know how lucky you are. Please support it if you're able to.
