The percentage is lower than in 2012, when 68% of specialised screens were based in independent cinemas. The pattern of programme type by location in 2013 is shown in Table 10.7. Screens showing mostly South Asian films were located in town or city centres and suburban areas, while those devoted to specialised film were mainly found in town or city centres. The overall pattern remained similar to earlier years.

This geographical analysis is extended in Table 10.8, which shows the distribution of specialised screens around the UK. Screens showing mainly specialised films were concentrated in London and the South East, which jointly accounted for 43% of the UK total in 2013. The South West had 29 specialised screens and Scotland 27, accounting for 11% and 10% respectively, of such screens. Northern Ireland (0.8%), the North East (2.6%) and Wales (3.4%) had the smallest percentages of specialised screens. Figure 10.3 shows the location of the 168 cinemas containing specialised screens. The four screens showing South Asian films were found in only two cinemas, one in London and the other in Leicester in the East Midlands.
