The Cinema industry is in a state of flux. Cinema operators face intense competition from other sources of entertainment, such video streaming websites and platforms such as iView, and from internet film piracy. Increases in household discretionary income and expenditure on recreation and culture, and high consumer sentiment over the past five years have helped offset some of the decline in demand for cinemas due to competition from internet downloads. Industry firms are currently upgrading projectors and sound systems to digital and 3D, and have responded to the intense competition through diversification and product innovation.
