ATTENDANCE

The 2005-06 Survey of Attendance at Selected Cultural Venues and Events showed that 10.4 million people (65% of the population aged 15 years and over) attended cinemas in the 12 months before interview in 2006. The attendance rate decreased successively with age from 93% for 15-17 year olds to 27% for people aged 75 years and over.
