Over 45s account for biggest share of UK audience


The BFI Statistical Yearbook has revealed that over 45s, specifically people aged 45-54, account for the biggest proportion of UK cinema-goers.

The 15-24s and 25-34s continue to decline, and have now fallen to their lowest proportion of cinema-goers on record.

Screen International guessed that factors contributing to the trend could include increasing ticket prices in cinemas (admission prices have increased by 0.5% since 2012) and more films being made aimed at an older audience, such as A Song for Marion, Quartet and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
