Table 10.6 shows that by far the majority of screens chiefly show mainstream films. In 2013, 586 cinemas with 3,598 screens showed mostly mainstream films (a 1% decrease in the number of sites and a 2% increase in the number of screens compared with 2012). There were 168 sites (with 265 screens, 7% of screens) showing mainly specialised films and two cinemas (with four screens, 0.1% of screens) dedicated mainly to South Asian films. The number of screens showing mostly specialised films decreased by 1% in 2013 and the number of sites decreased by 5%.
