Imho, movie theaters should just go down already. Big screen TV's are already quite cheap now (FHD ones - I got my 3D FHD 55" inch for €900) and the movies should just be put on online streaming services like iTunes, Play movies and what not. I see no reason just to keep spoon feeding theaters.

EDIT: Err. €900 not €9000 lol.

All delivered via downloading, so u can play it offline & then u can also redownload the content infinitely(with no such BS as pay per usage).

lets not forget that games studio also keep supporting the game with patches for free after you bought the game. And they also do not have the luxury of selling the rights to cinema/TV channels like movie studio have.

I keeping wonder why cant the movie industry do the same. All I see is how they cry about pirate streaming ruin their profit, yet they spent little effort in making their own movie cheaper & more available.

Just to play devil's advocate a bit. The game studios that make games with the same budget as movies sell their games for $60 each. a while down the road the price drops lower and lower. It takes quite a while for that game to drop to $5.00.

In contrast, cinematic production companies release their movies into theaters, get about ~$13/person, then go to DVD for around $20, then drop in price until they're in the $5 bargain bin.

Yes, the game studios keep supporting the product for free (the decent ones anyways), but they also made $60 off of each and every copy bought in the first few months, probably $40 for every copy in the next year, then MAYBE as low as $5 per copy after that, and that's a pretty big maybe as a lot of the "classic" games for consoles you see at Wal Mart and the like are perpetually $19.99.

I'm not saying movies don't make a ton of money, just pointing out that I don't think games with the same budgets as movies can be directly compared to each other. The only thing they really have in common is that they are digital content and can be delivered via download or disc.

The only way I'd get a ticket for $13 is via phone carrier discounts. Otherwise it would be somewhere between $18 and $28 depending on the individual cinema and the type of film (2D, 3D, bigger screen, HFR, etc.). Can't even afford the stale popcorn! tongue.gif

My parents live in Cyprus and they have a little box connected to thier TV that streams torrent films exactly like Amazon Tv etc. They pick the film from a list and then they need to choose which torrent to stream, it's a little trial and error to find on that doesnt buffer every 5 seconds, but i thinks thats more to do with how terrible the internet over there is.

The system they have is called ClearStream but I've never been able to find it over her, the box looks like and apple TV box.

Yeah never really came to mind. They should just have option to stream movies but then again people will find a way to copy from them. Theaters are just such a good controlled money income.

The only time I would really do this, is 1. If I would never have seen the movie unless it was free somewhere. 2. If I have seen it in theaters but never plan on buying it. 3. If I want the movie but can't find a legal way to get it.

I don't have a problem in some cases with doing this. Between having netflix, Directv with all movie channels, and redbox readily available. If I occasionally use a service like this, I don't see an issue with it.

People like to occasionally watch movies on a 50 FOOT screen not inch. I have a 120" projection screen and even then I like to visit the theater some times.

Yeah I miss the days of being able to go to the cinema for a big release,Even if the video quality was terrible on average.

It was just very immersive being able to watch on a big screen at huge volume levels.

I would still go from time to time if they hadn't all closed down lol

Yeah man, all the local ones have disappeared within the last 5 years, the last one lasted up until about 2 years back but only because they rented out use of the facilities to people to game on the screens lol
There is one about an hours drive away but the quality is just horrendous, even in the back row the pixelation is unbearable.
Apart from that one next one is about a two and a half hours drive in my states capitol lol

Seems like the ones in the capitol cities are doing okay, though other than that they are dropping like flies.
