Northern Ireland had the highest number of screens per 100,000 people of the four UK nations in 2013 (11.0), followed by London (7.5) and the South West, the South East and Scotland (all 6.4). Table 10.4 Screens and population in the nations and regions, 2013 (ranked by screens per 100,000 people) Nation/region Screens % of total screens Sites Population (in 000)* Screens per 100,000 people Average number of screens per site Northern Ireland 200 5.2 28 1,824 11.0 7.1 London 619 16.0 112 8,308 7.5 5.5 South West 343 8.9 89 5,340 6.4 3.9 South East 559 14.5 123 8,725 6.4 4.5 Scotland 338 8.7 66 5,314 6.4 5.1 Wales 195 5.0 49 3,074 6.3 4.0 North West 447 11.6 67 7,084 6.3 6.7 West Midlands 304 7.9 53 5,643 5.4 5.7 Yorkshire and The Humber 270 7.0 48 5,317 5.1 5.6 North East 129 3.3 24 2,602 5.0 5.4 East Midlands 213 5.5 43 4,568 4.7 5.0 East of England 233 6.0 50 5,907 3.9 4.7 Others** 17 0.4 4 n/a n/a 4.3 Total 3,867 100.0 756 63,705 6.1 5.1 Source: Dodona Research, Office for National Statistics (ONS), BFI RSU analysis Notes: * ONS Mid-year population estimates 2012. ** Others include the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. n/a = not available. Figures may not sum to totals due to rounding. Table 10.4 also shows that Northern Ireland and the North West had the highest averages for screens per site at 7.1 and 6.7 respectively. The South West and Wales along with ‘others’ (which include the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man) had the lowest averages for screens per site showing a tendency towards smaller cinemas and, particularly for the South West and others, proportionally fewer multiplex screens (Table 10.5). 10.6 Type of cinema screens by nation and region Table 10.5 provides a snapshot of variations in multiplex provision around the UK. London had the largest number of multiplex screens (418) in 2013, eight more than the South East. The North West had the highest proportion of multiplex screens (89%) followed by the North East and Northern Ireland. In England the lowest concentration of multiplex screens was found in the South West (58%), which had a high number of traditional and mixed use screens (the third highest after London and the South East). The proportion of multiplex screens for England as a whole was 75%.
