Abstract [en]

The 1950s to the mid1970s marks the final phase of urbanization in Sweden and full implementation of the Social democratic welfare state. It’s a period of prosperity in which the industries and their workforce are celebrated and provide models and standards also for other wakes of society and life.

In the year 1956 cinema going peaked in Sweden! Seven years later the number of cinema tickets sold had cut back by half and continued to dwindle. Is television to be blamed?

For the rural and industrial region of Bergslagen we will present a cinema location analysis that identifies the venues that persisted with film exhibition 1956-76. The map is layered with data on population density, ownership of television sets, entertainment hubs and transportation routes. An analysis will address the hypothesis (1) that cinema more or less perished in rural areas (2) as a result of the dissemination of television. We seek to complicate the history of rural cinema by exploring social, cultural and geographical relations in the region. The result is an attempt at writing rural industrial history taking leisure as a point of departure, rather than the more established practice of organizing the historical narrative around “work”.
