Live Cinema is a term used to capture a diverse range of experiences that incorporate a 'live' element in relation to a film's exhibition. The live augmentation of cinema screenings is not a new phenomenon, indeed this tendency is present throughout the entire history of cinema in the form of live musical accompaniments to silent screenings, showmanship practices, and cult film audience behaviours. The contemporary revival of experiential cinema captured within this volume presents instances where the live transcends the mediated and escapes beyond the boundaries of the auditorium. Our contributors investigate film exhibition practices that include synchronous live performance, site specific screenings, technological intervention, social media engagement, and all manner of simultaneous interactive moments including singing, dancing, eating and drinking.These investigations reveal new cultures of reception and practice, new experiential aesthetics and emergent economies of engagement. This collection brings together fifteen contributions that together trace the emergence of a vivid new area of study. Drawing on rich, diverse and interdisciplinary fields of enquiry, this volume encapsulates a broad range of innovative methodological approaches, offers new conceptual frameworks and new critical vocabularies through which to describe and analyse the emergent phenomena of Live Cinema.

The delightfully paradoxical topic of the 'liveness' of cinema gets excellent airing in this collection of essays drawn from Atkinson & Kennedy's important Live Cinema project. Here, in all their complex glory, are case studies on popup cinema, secret cinema, event cinema, rural cinema, street food cinema, classic pier cinema, film festivals, and more - all of them attesting that different kinds of audience participation are nothing new, even if they are currently taking a whole variety of startling revitalised forms. The editors, their contributing researchers and practitioners offer us not just a rich array of kinds of liveness, but also some vital analytic tools we need to make sense of the range of experiences these offer audiences.
This is a terrific edited collection! It brings together an impressive range of perspectives on recent developments in contemporary cinema and the nature of live experience - a very timely and compelling subject for anyone interested in cinema and media audiences more broadly.
Live Cinema: Cultures, Economies, Aesthetics successfully addresses a significant gap in knowledge that existed around the experience of immersive, participatory film screening in spaces outside cinema . each chapter contains some valuable perspectives.
