Cinema is not dead, it's just evolving 🤪
Cinema exhibition has a tough road ahead of it. We love the artform and think there’s life in the old dog yet. And we’re happy to put our shoulder to the wheel wherever it’s needed. We think our value is best spent connecting dots between existing cinemas and arts venues to more ✨younger vibes✨ so our work has impact and resonance with younger folk.
Be part of a community of people who share your interests of trying to make cinema exhibition that little bit better each time we produce an event.

Our Marketing Packs 🧚🏻♂️
We’ve been publishing marketing packs for films we think people like us would care about, and ideas on how to attract them. The fruits of that labour is here.
Our talk at This Way Up 👀
For This Way Up Conference 2020 some of us outlined practical ways to attract and keep young audiences. We called for cinemas to act now and to ensure activity and the way they speak to audiences are relevant in light of COVID-19.
Speakers were Caroline Wilson, Megan Mitchell, Thea Berry, Gabrielle Jackson. With thanks to other contributors Rebekah Taylor, Aaron Guthrie, Yasmin Begum and Phil Kennedy.
