Introduction

Topic Overview

Sitting watching lots of photographs per second in a room full of strangers has been a pastime enjoyed by all walks of life in all corners of the globe for over a hundred years. The appeal of those halcyon days is obvious; folks didn’t have TVs or ipads and apart from going to church or lynching, there wasn’t all that much to do in their downtime. In the 21st century, going to the cinema is facing stiff competition from internets, disco dancing, pop music and gum chewing. Who wants to go to the cinema anyway? Spending 15 quid on a ticket to see some three-hour Michael Bay nonsense, drinking a Coke for a tenner, having to try and ignore arseholes either chatting, texting or slowly advancing on your armrest, straining your neck to see the screen through a tiny gap between the head’s of a canoodling couple. Eff that.
