The place of the audience: cultural geographies of film consumption

Front Cover
British Film Institute, 2003 - Drama - 281 pages
It has been a recurring complaint both within, and against, Film Studies that it has largely ignored the activities of audiences. This book addresses this absence and explains its cause. The authors argue that there is a social context in which the consumption of film can be understood or studied historically and demonstrate that a concentration on the place of film consumption within the changing cultural politics of the city can offer a compelling and productive focus of analysis.
