The Film Distributors Association has today announced that it expects Autumn 2015 to be the biggest of all-time in the UK, with a record-breaking number of cinema visits predicted.
With film’s such as Spectre and Star Wars: The Force Awakens leading the charge at this autumn’s box office in the UK, over 100 other feature films are set to be released to UK audiences between the two juggarnaut blockbusters. With that in mind, the FDA anticipates a modern-times record of 50 million cinema visits will be made between October – December, compared to the average 43 million which has attended over the last five years.
