Lower the cost of ticket prices.  That's a given. 
Offer discount days where all movies all times are less than $8.00 dollars. 

My biggest pet peeve is the astronomical prices at the concession stands. Almost twenty-five dollars for a large popcorn and beverage.  Are you kidding me?  A combo gives you a small break but certainly no value.  If I just want a beverage, almost $5.00 dollars for something to drink.  The small sizes are ridiculously small but way overpriced. A small popcorn is finished in three bites and horribly overpriced.  Forget the candy or gumdrops, they are a King's ransom.  Offer me value-priced food and beverage items and you will get me back in the theatre in no time.  Keep gouging me on the products and there is no need for me to return.  It's that simple.

Better movies would be one way.  Less violence and bad language.  More good roles for women of all ages, shapes, colors and sizes who are allowed to keep their clothes on.  Then more roles for women in general, small roles, character roles, et al.

As for things the theaters themselves could do:

1.  List the actual time the movie is going to start, not the starting time for the commercials and previews for movies I would never go see.

2.  Throw out anyone who uses a cell phone during the movie.

3.  Throw out anyone who talks loudly.

4.  Throw out people who allow their children to be disruptive.  

5.  Throw out anyone who sticks their feet up on the seat ahead of them.  The last time I went to a movie, two teenage boys put their feet up on either side of my head.  They thought that was hilarious.  I decided to never go to another movie as I've had them ruined too many times, most often by boys acting stupid, but occasionally others.

6.  Keep the theater and bathrooms clean.

7.  Paper towels in the bathrooms, not air blowers.

8.  No scented soaps in the bathrooms.  The last time I went to the theater, I couldn't figure out what the horrible sweet smell was that quickly clogged my sinuses.  I had to leave at the first intermission but stopped in the ladies room to wipe my running nose and eyes and discovered it was the soap that was stinking up the place and making me sick.  I should have demanded a refund, but I just had to get out of there so I could breathe.

9.  Keep in mind it is a theater where people are sitting.  We don't need the air conditioning thermostat set to 60 degrees.

The main  reason my husband and I don’t go to the movies is that people are rude. They carry on conversations as if they are in their own den which makes it difficult to hear. The cost is also a factor. We have On Demand, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. It’s much cheaper to rent a movie and watch at home. I do miss seeing movies on the big screen and sometimes I don’t like having to wait to see something I’ really interested in.

I attend a movie at least once a week   for the very reasons mentioned. It like anything else will disappear if not utilized . Yes they are cold but take a jacket. And the afternoon matinee for seniors is usually $5.00

Movies that aren't Star Wars #99, James Bond #100, or superhoeroes. There are so many historical stories out there that could be made into decent movies. Something that stimulates the intelligence! A SciFi movie that isn't silly & actual;ly has some real science ideas in it. Most movies today are like TV - opium for the masses.

We do not go as much as we used to, but I always like the way my wife wants to hold hands - after 27 years!

I've tried to rent a few videos and they're all pretty tacky, the majority so when I go to the theater I only see christian-based movies, where Jesus is alive again, praise God!

I don't think there is anything that would ever get me back into a theatre again. Cell and smart phones all around you destroy any enjoyment of watching, or even being able to pay attention to a show. Same with live shows for that matter. I wish they would ban them.

Also, with all of the viewing choices at home, coupled with 80 inch tv screens and sound systems, it is tough for me to fork out $50 to see a flick in a theatre. Did I mention far better snack choices at home? 

To paraphrase Quint... I'll never go back.
