Upcoming website on moviegoing experience
The significant drop in movie attendance has focused a lot of attention on patrons' dissatisfaction with the moviegoing experience. Bad manners, careless presentation, lackluster theaters, commercials, cell phones and high prices have all been cited as reasons why people are choosing to avoid cinemas and watch movies at home.
Currently under development is a new website for moviegoers to find and post reviews of specific cinemas, which will be rated like restaurants – on their presentation, service, ambience, showmanship, etc. A public forum for feedback can inform fellow moviegoers and give exhibitors more incentive to improve their overall quality.
In addition to reviewing and rating cinemas, CinemaSightlines will focus on many facets of the moviegoing experience, including novelty formats, special events, panel discussions, etc, plus Home Theatre (with more critical than usual DVD reviews and tips on enhancing home movie nights) as well as Private Cinemas (a look at dedicated high-end movie theatres built into private homes).
CinemaSightlines is seeking volunteers familiar with Dreamweaver for Macintosh to help build the basic structure of the site. Anyone interested can contact the Webmaster at .
