Cinemas in Sydney are one of the best places to watch movies in Australia, but the city’s top attractions can’t be found anywhere else.
A new survey of more than 1,500 people in Australia found that the majority of Australians don’t feel like they’ve got the best out of their favourite places to experience the moviegoer.
“Cinemagoers tend to go where they feel most connected to a movie,” Professor Andrew Hulme, the director of the Institute for the Study of Media and Society at Monash University, said.
“So if you’re going to see a movie, if you have a good time and you’re part of the local culture, if there’s an intimate atmosphere and you feel like you can make an impact on a story, then you’re most likely to be at a great cinema.”
Professor Hulmes study found that 75 per cent of respondents said they would be less likely to go to a cinema if it wasn’t accessible and free.
The survey also found that 70 per cent would rather go to movies on the weekends than go to the cinema on weekdays.
But there were also plenty of other factors that make Sydney the ideal location for moviegoing.
“We’ve got some of the highest concentrations of independent and independent-focused theatres in the country,” Mr Hulman said.
