Considering cinematic tourism from the disciplinary background of film studies, this chapter proposes an entrance point which consists in exploring the cinematic tourist experience through the lens of film theory. Adopting spatial categories, one section focuses on tourist space in films and discusses contributions which have explored the virtual tourist experience recurring to film theories elaborated from 1970s onwards. The other section focuses on films in tourist space and suggests an understanding of the film tourist experience in the framework of relocation of cinema, questioning spaces and forms of persistence of an “idea of cinema” in times of media convergence.

Abstract

Considering cinematic tourism from the disciplinary background of film studies, this chapter proposes an entrance point which consists in exploring the cinematic tourist experience through the lens of film theory. Adopting spatial categories, one section focuses on tourist space in films and discusses contributions which have explored the virtual tourist experience recurring to film theories elaborated from 1970s onwards. The other section focuses on films in tourist space and suggests an understanding of the film tourist experience in the framework of relocation of cinema, questioning spaces and forms of persistence of an “idea of cinema” in times of media convergence.
