Independent Cinema Office
Our mission is to develop an open, challenging and thriving film sector. We are the UK’s national body in support of independent cinemas, film festivals and exhibitors of all forms. We want everyone to have access to cinema that nourishes the soul and changes lives.
The financial health of the independent cinema sector
The results of our recent sector survey
In September 2023 we undertook a survey of theatrical exhibitors to try and gather evidence on the current financial health of the sector. We received 157 responses from independent cinemas, small chains, multiplexes and mixed arts venues.
