Academic Writing - Model Answer (Task 1)

The line graph shows how many people aged between 15 and 45+ went to the cinema between 1997 and 2009.

60 million youngsters aged 15-24 watched films at the cinema in 1997 and a little above this number in 2009. The lowest attendance for this age group is noted in 2004 (52 million viewers) while the following year attendance was 62 million. 

Around 40 million 25-34 year olds visited the cinema between 1997 and 2000. A peak was reached in 2001 and 2004 of almost 50 million admissions whilst figures between 2005 and 2009 were below 40 million. An upward trend is noted for cinema attendance for those aged between 35 to 44. Figures start at 20 million in 1997 and reach 35 million five years later. For the remaining years admissions fluctuate below 30 million. 

Finally, there is an increase in interest over the years to watch movies at the cinema for those aged 45+. Initial figures are at 20 million in the first year and they more than double in 2009, reaching 42 million.

We can see that going to the cinema is popular with the 15-24 year olds and that there is a growing interest in this activity amongst the older age group.
