Audiences as Fans and Consumers -FS2 - Task 3

Audiences as Fans and Consumers

Task 3

The nature of the cinema experience – is it high or low brow?

Write notes on a single side of A-4 or keep typed notes so you can discuss your points and ideas in class. These notes will also help you to write timed essays at the end of each month.

What do the terms “high brow” and “low brow” mean?

Would you say that in your experience going to the cinema is a “high brow” or “low brow” pastime?

What type or class of people do you believe go to the cinema? Does this vary according to the film, and/or depending on the particular cinema in question?
