dc.description.abstractIn 1984 cinema attendance reached its nadir yet one year later Britain’s first multiplex, The Point, opened in Milton Keynes. It heralded a year-on-year increase in the number of multiplexes, which was echoed in a rise in admissions. During the 1980s and early 1990s the multiplex radically changed the previous exhibition landscape, modernising the business of cinema exhibition, and shifting the site of film consumption to new, out-of-town shopping and leisure centres. From the mid-1990s onwards there was a growing anxiety about the impact of out-of-town developments on Britain’s urban centres, and the multiplex cinema has been integral to the renewed emphasis on the importance of the urban core.en
