Cinema investigation - Evidence
In 2010 people in the UK visited the cinema nearly 170 million times and spent almost £990 watching movies on the big screen.
After a number of negative incidents affecting Trailblazers in Wales, the network decided that the cinema industry needed further investigation.
Trailblazers in the country went out into their local communities and visited and rated their local major chain and independent cinemas. They completed surveys, interviewed cinema managers and architects, wrote blogs, set up a petition, wrote their own report, and made their own documentary that showed the big picture of access in UK cinemas today.
Lauren West from Cardiff reviewed her local Odeon cinema:
I went with two friends, but since there was only one companion seat one of my friends had to sit in-front. However, sitting at the back had a much better view, and was much more comfortable than sitting in the usual seats at the front.
