Over the past twenty years there has been a notable shift towards the study of all kinds of past film exhibition spaces (both public and private) and the tastes, responses and habits of the audiences who frequented them. This is illustrated by the growing number of publications, networks and research projects on past cinema audiences which cross and connect the disciplines of film and media studies, cultural and leisure studies, and history and cultural geography.With this shift towards researching spaces of exhibition and their audiences, film historians have met the call to look beyond traditional film history methodologies and incorporate the use of a wide range of sources, from archival, industry and reception sources, to audience memories elicited through interviews or questionnaires.This conference offers a platform for both established and emerging scholars who share this desire to research past cinema audiences – prior to 2000 – through a wide range of investigative foci. The conference will allow for the showcasing and sharing of current research and, consequently, for the consideration of current and future directions and debates within the field.
