More movies without all the computerized content. Just real actors! Also, lower prices, Fixed incomes make it difficult to spend so much to go to a movie, especially when you can get so many on TV now.

I am a little amazed at the number of responses regarding the quality of "popcorn" that makes them either go to, or miss going to, movie theaters? That may have held some truth 50 years ago, but today is a different story. Whats to like about popcorn that is salted within an inch of its (and my) life, and coated with some mystery grease that tastes more like used motor oil than butter? I pop a huge bowlful made with peanut or similar organic oil, season with fresh herbs and spices (jalepeno is one of my favorites), coat with some real melted butter (optional), and at pennies on the dollar for the theater variety.

I won't even try the popcorn offerings at sporting events for the same reason.If you think the stuff they are pumping into your popcorn box has any relationship to real butter....don't.

I agree. We have free Roku TV and also free Kanopy , a movie service provided by our county library. Kanopy offers thousnads of movies, loaded directly to our Roku TV, all types of movies, some older, and some rather recent. We haven't been in a movie theater in more than 5 years; tickets are far too expensive, snacks are crazy expensive and we don't see any benefit to go to a movie theater. My prediction is that like the trend now happening with shopping malls, the movie theaters will slowly disappear, especially since many theaters are located in malls.

Absolutely agree with you. We have Roku TV and love it. Also, we have free access to thousands of movies, some quite recent, from Kanopy, provided by our public library system. My wife and I haven't been in a movie theater for at leat the past 5 years and see no reason to change that. Movie theaters are expensive and in today's "uncivilized" society, movie theaters have the potential to be dangerous.
