Re-creating the Movie Experience with the Latest Trend: The Community Cinema

As the price of cinema tickets continues to skyrocket (not to mention the price of the popcorn), the Friday night film date is quickly becoming less frequent enter the community cinema.

The days of a trip to the local cinema being a cheap and cheerful night out are long gone, having been replaced by an experience that many people feel has become excessively expensive. According to a study by the BFI, the average price of a cinema ticket in the UK increased from £4.87 in 2006 to £7.17 in 2015 – and in major cities such as London, a single adult ticket can easily cost close to £20.

The cost of taking a family of four to see a film – which includes tickets, drinks and popcorn – can now break the £100 barrier, highlighting just how expensive the activity has become.
