How to start a cinema is a guide for anyone who is interested in starting a cinema or showing films in their village, town or city in the UK. You may not know what you need to know but this guide aims to cover it all. It goes through all of the aspects you need to consider from suitable buildings to technical considerations, to costs, programming, marketing, staffing and finding an audience.

It also includes a number of case studies, from very large to very small venues, where you can hear the personal experiences, tips and insights of people who have actually done it. It may sound complicated but this aims to be a comprehensive guide to everything you need to consider with a series of easy-to-use chapter headings and summaries for each section.
