Kermode and Mayo sit at the centre of the UK’s biggest film community with one of the UK’s biggest podcasts.

It’s a format that defies explanation. It’s as much a conversation as a show, a movement as a review. Its audience is one of the most engaged and interactive of any in the UK across any platform.

It’s a seamless conversation about film that never stops across YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, live radio, podcasts and into theatres themselves. Such is its power, it has spawned a code of conduct for independent cinemas, woken a man from a coma, created two marriages and is the most downloaded podcast across the BBC. It has the power to affect its audiences’ film choices, its jokes have become features of other shows and it has changed the way thousands of people talk about film. Although it’s not on TV, it has a bigger audience than Film 2017.

In 2017 the programme added to its numerous awards when it was chosen by listeners as the UK’s favourite podcast at the inaugural British Podcast Awards.

We produced Kermode and Mayo's Film Thing.

The Code of Conduct

I hope you’ve not taken your shoes off…

The Review’s audience are a committed bunch of cinema goers.  In 2012 Mark and Simon started a conversation about the ways to behave in cinemas.  It sparked a big reaction, a reaction that started a movement. This movement created the ‘Cinema Code of Conduct‘, which are the ultimate rules for how to behave in a cinema.  Independent cinemas across the country have now adopted this code.  Fans on the show are on constant look out for infringements and report back to the show every week about what they see.


That Sex in the City Review

Mark’s reviews can become as important as the films themselves to fans of the show.  In particular, his review of Sex in the City 2 has legendary status.
