Cineworld

I would say that this film is a multiplex cinema as it has multiple screens in a
single complex. The Milton Keynes Cineworld has 16 screens. It has 4DX,
Starbucks Coffee, food stall and Super screen. It’s located in the Xscape in Milton
Keynes. More conglomerate films are shown than independent. The implications
of my findings for institutions and film audiences is that the majority of films
shown are conglomerate produced, this means that independent film companies
aren’t getting their films exhibited as the conglomerates have priority over them
due to more money. Also most of the films at the cinema at the moment are
rated at 15+ which means that younger audiences don’t have as much choice as
people over aged 15 do. This is an issue as there should be a wide range of films
for all audiences to enjoy.

The Rex
The Rex is an arthouse cinema; this is because it’s independently produced,
outside the major film companies. It has Food and Drink, live entertainment and
unique surroundings. There is only 1 screen in The Rex. It’s located in
Berkhampsted. Overall, The Rex exhibits independent films more than
conglomerate films due to it being an arthouse cinema. I think that they’re no
implications with this cinema as it mainly exhibits independent films which give
independent film companies a chance to have their film shown on the big
screens.

BFI London
The BFI (British Film Institution) cinema is located in Southbank, London. It’s an
arthouse cinema as it’s not owned by a conglomerate and it shows films that
aren’t mainly conglomerate produced. I think that the BFI cinema is good as it
shows a wide range of films and not just ones that are being released recently.
This is a great idea as it shows people films from different time periods which
gives a great overview of films that were released in the past, even before
teenagers were born. The main issue with BFI London is that currently it’s mainly
releasing conglomerate films when it’s an arthouse. This is an issue as it’s not
giving independent film companies the exhibition they need even though they
promote the fact that they fund a lot of independent films. Also most of the films
that are shown there at the moment are rated 15+ which means that people
under the age of 15 can’t watch films at the BFI.
