The line graph shows the percentage of 14-60 year olds that went to the cinema at least once a year over a twenty year period.
To begin with, 90% of those aged 14-24 visited the cinema annually in 1990. Attendance reached a peak in 1998 at 95% as well as in 2010. Between 1998 and 2008 attendance by this group was steady at 90%. While only 60% of the 25-34 year olds visited the cinema in 1990, this percentage rose by 20% ten years later. Stable attendance was noted in the next four years followed by a 10% drop. Similarly, the 35-49 year olds began with attendances of 60% in 1990 to gradually reach 85% twenty years later. Between 1996 and 2002 the percentage of cinema goers in this age group remained at 70%. Finally, 40% of the oldest age group went to the cinema in the first two years and 10% more the following two years as well as 2000 and 2002. Interest in cinema for the 50+ age group gradually rose to 60% in 2010.
In conclusion, more youngsters attended the cinema in the 20 year time frame whilst fewer of the oldest group did so. The percentage of the 50+ and 35-49 year olds enjoying the cinema increased whilst the figures for the 14-24 year olds remained relatively stable.
