Contribution à une sociologie de la consommation cinématographique : la réception des films à Longwy (France) au début des années 2000

Abstract : Begun in 2002, my thesis supports the interest, from an understanding point of view, of a localised observation of the cinematographic practice, in total counterpoint of the national studies (standard C.N.C.) who separate public and films or from the theories of the semiological cinema of inspiration which neglect the social anchoring of the cinematographic experiment. The plebiscite granted to films of entertainment to the box office of multiplexes of Longwy (54), celebrates working city of North East of France, less seems to result from absolute preferences that practices differentiated as regards cinematographic consumption. My statistical surveys (270 questionnaires) and qualitative (70 discussions with spectators and 10 with professionals of the city) and my observations of the practices of the spectators (at Theaters and consumption in residence) testify to a profusion of the kinds to films, supports of viewing and modes of attention to films. This heterogeneity of the practices of the spectator reveals pleasures differentiated from films ("to see a film with the cinema, it is not similar which to see a film at the house") and the importance of the typically local way of life (the city is a dormitory town where people leave downtown very little in week and work at Luxembourg-city to 50 km). The vitality of the local sociability which is tied around films (especially when it?s written with Internet), just as the contact repeated with the latter clarifies a capacity of expertise on behalf of the "ordinary" spectator. These results thus seem to me to validate the interest of a located observation, in measurement to only restore at the same time the richness of the cinematographic experiment of the spectator and his determinants. It calls, I hope for it, other studies of the same kind.
