Beyond Sex, Bond and Star Wars : Exhibition Data from the Southampton Odeon 1972-1980

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This article uses the personal ledgers of a cinema manager to explore programming and film exhibition at the Southampton Odeon in the 1970s. The detailed accounts provide a rare insight into cinema exhibition and challenge the notion that 1970s cinema was all about sex, violence, horror and exploitation, suggesting instead that audiences at this cinema, favoured very different fare.
