    Abstract

    This paper uses the recently discovered box-office ledger of the first-run cinema the Regent in Portsmouth, UK, to test the POPSTAT methodology for measuring film popularity in the general absence of such data. In order to do this a dataset of the film programs of all twenty-one cinemas screening films in the city in 1934 has been constructed from which a clear picture of film distribution and popularity emerges.
