This paper recalls the emergence of our focus on the experiential aspects of consumption in general and their relevance to the arts and entertainment. It views a consumption experience via an extension, enlargement, and elaboration of the traditional I-C-A-B-S Model in which Information → Cognitions → Affect → Behavior → Satisfaction. In the appropriately broadened view, Information is enriched to include offerings from the arts and entertainment; Cognitions-Affect-&-Behavior are expanded to embrace Fantasies-Feelings-&-Fun; and Satisfaction is explained in a more nuanced representation of the different types of Consumer Value that potentially result from a consumption experience. Further exploration of the latter phenomenon appears to be a desirable objective for future research on consumption experiences in the arts.
