Introduction

Grace Gladstone August 04 A.V.C.E Performing Arts Summer Assignment The first venue which I chose to research is 'Vue Cinema', Islington. This cinema recently bought out the Warner Village company. This complex is situated in the heart of a busy shopping centre. The cinema only offers one type of performance, which is film. However, a wide and varied range of film can be offered because of the large number of screens available in the Vue Cinema complex. This enables a wide choice of film genre. For example, comedy, action, horror, chick-flick, romance, kids, teens, foreign, thriller, documentaries etc... Due to the wide choice of film genre available, the needs of a very large audience can be met, as there is always 'something for everyone' available. For example, as of 8th August, the following programme was available: Cat Woman (12A) Garfield the movie (U), Home on the range (U), I robot (12A), Shrek 2 (U), King Arthur (12A), Spiderman 2 (PG), The Stepford wives (12A), Mean girls (12A), Fahrenheit 911 (15), Thunderbirds (PG) and Yu Gi Oh the movie (PG). As you can see the most targeted audience at the moment is for people aged fifteen and under. ...read more.

The walk to your screen is rather luxurious as the carpet underfoot is very deep and springy. On route to your screen, you pass several toilets (making availability very good). The toilets are very clean, modern and well-maintained. When you reach your screen, your usher directs you to your seat. The seats are larger than standard cinema seats and are of a much higher quality. Every seat has a drink holder attached and plenty of leg room. As the rows are very spaced out, every seat is a 'good seat' as the screen can be seen easily from any of them. The overall experience of a cinema visit to this complex is a good one and the value for money here is very fair. It is like having the West-End facilities at your door! The second venue in which I have researched is a large music venue. I have chosen to do this year's Party in the Park at Hyde Park, London, which took place on the 11th July from twelve until seven thirty. This large music event holds 100,000 paying people and is surely the event of the year, every year. ...read more.

Conclusion

Considering the event is held in a park, it is very clean and looks completely different once the stage and other stalls for food and drink are situated around the standing area of the concert. It is held in a friendly environment and everybody is very helpful and nice around you. As everybody is there to enjoy themselves, not many arguments or fights take place and this is also due to the high standard of security here. Free water was given out this year as the weather was really hot and therefore people were dehydrated, so instead of the audience trying to make their way out of the crowd to buy drinks, free water was passed into the crowd by security. Situated around the park were stalls selling either souvenirs, such as t-shirts, badges, pens etc..., food, drink and other products such as whistles, programmes and scarves etc. Toilets and wash rooms were also situated around the park so the audience had easy access if they needed to use them. Overall, this venue is very clean, a lot of fun and partying is done and the fact that it is all for the Princes Trust and you know your money is going towards a good cause makes the day even better! ...read more.
