Line chart:people went to cinema in the UK

The line chart illustrates that how the percentage of people who went to cinema once a month or more changed in the UK from 1984 to 2003, according to four age groups.

The group of 15 to 24 years is the dominant viewers who went to the cinema throughout this period, with 20% in 1984, rising to approximately 28% in 1991. Despite the figure remained stable at nearly 31% and 40% from 1995 to 1997 and 1999 to 2001 respectively, some fluctuations within a wide range between 30% and 50% from 1991 to 1995 and 1998 to 1999.

By contrast, the groups of 7 to 14 years and 25 to 35 are similar over the period. The former group increased slightly from 15% in 1984 to 30% in 2003 with some ups and downs, while the latter group showed an initial growth from 10% to about 16% in 1991, after which time the percentage maintained steady to 1995 before increasing significantly to 24% in 1998. Since then the figure went up slowly.

In terms of the group of over 35 years, there was a smooth increase from merely 2% to 5% in 1995, after which it witnessed a dramatic growth until keeping stable at 20% during the last 3 years.

Overall, the British cinema viewers will continue to rely on people under 24 years, with over 35 years audiences remaining relatively insignificant.
