I have heard this argument for 50 years, Tv will kill the movies, beta ,Vhs , laser disc will kill the movies,dvd will kill the movies , giant tv screens will kill the movies ,home video, home audio ,direct tv, dvr ….blah blah blah… Nothing will kill the movie biz……. Sorry 50 years of the same bs and it never changes!
Then why is attendance continually going up.. not cash…….Even with all the computers ,giant tv screens and todays tech no decrease in attendance.. Most people love going to the movies on this site as i read them all the time. Those who live in the past well live in the past!
Chains sucked than and most suck now—– very little change in 30 years.
Theater projection is far superior to 25 years ago and sound is amazing…Maybe no curtains but the far better seats than the 70s —80 s more than make up for it. Been in the biz since 1981.
These are the people on Cinema Treasures——
I REMEMBER WHEN TICKETS WERE $ 3.00 AND $6.00 GAS WAS .99 CENTS…..
MOVIES ARE CHEAP —NAME 2 THINGS YOU CAN DO FOR 2 HOURS THAT COST $10.00—-NOTHING! A few cheap people want to bitch those will be the ones hone alone!
I HAVE 2 THEATERS IN CHARLESTON SC
People have no clue what it cost to run a movie theater…..My single screen (yes 1 screen) needs to take in $63,000 per month to break even..I am not in a top 10 city.
NO CHANGE IN MOVIE GOING—-PEOPLE WANT TO GO OUT…
Well requires a 3 year deal were they profit share…No thanks for a system that costs $10,000.. They Wont let you buy it.

JON LIBOT——-I could not disagree more. I own one of those 75 ft screen theaters and the picture is amazing. Sharp like digital with out the projector. This industry was founded on giant screens and in the 80s they went the way of the newspaper. There is one thing I do agree on the picture should only by large in the width . When the height of the screen goes beyond 35 ft the eye can not take the whole picture in.
