The critique of heritage cinema has demarcated ‘heritage films’ as institutionally and culturally distinct from the mainstream in particular ways that mark enjoyment of them as a taste, and a sphere of consumption, characterised by a degree of (self-conscious) separation from commercial popular film/culture. This chapter examines the general contours of Heritage Audience Survey respondents' cinemagoing and film viewing habits — or more precisely, their film habitus, focusing on period films. It discusses respondents' frequency of cinemagoing and viewing of films in other media, the relative place of commercial and art cinema venues within their habitus — and, indeed, whether they saw films at the cinema at all (which a significant contingent of older respondents in the National Trust subsample did not).

Keywords:   Heritage Audience Survey, period films, heritage cinema, heritage films, film viewing habits, film habitus, cinemagoing, art cinema
