Notes In an analysis of Greek cinema circuits in Australia for 1956-63, Markov Chains were used to identify statistically significant patterns. However, these movements have proven difficult to visualise, particularly given the variation in temporal and spatial scale, at which these movements occur. This paper will demonstrate some approaches that have been developed to show how film movements between one cinema venue and another can be visualised. In particular dates of screening for individual films that move from one venue to another were used to provide temporal analysis. Spatial locations of cinema were topologically shown using network modelling. These visualisations are important to film and cinema historians to show the micro-level characteristics of sequential film distribution (with specific attention to the relationship between producer, venue and customer expectations) and macro-level factors (intercity rivalries and preferences, the broader relationship between Greek film producers and venue operators for example).
