My granddaughters.  They wanted to see the Greatest Showman on Christmas Eve.  They’ll be 4 and 8 next year.  Disney, are you listening?

What would make you go to the movies again?

 

Nothing, I have a BenQ projector and surround sound, it's like a five x eight foot HD projection, Netflix and Amazon with a Nvida Shield. 

 

Movies, shows, serials, documentaries, education, ambient,  music, Utube, games and more.

 

No commercials, no cable news, no cable or satellite TV,  I cut the cord years ago.

Popcorn.  I loved to go to the movies and eat popcorn.  I don't even bother looking at it now. Cooked in some kind of weird oil and enough salt to kill every snail in America.  If you ask for "butter" they put on a "buttery flavored oil".  I asked one attendant if it was real butter.  "I think so". So I asked if they put it in a refrigerator at night.  The look on his face was priceless.

This may not seem a question for here but think of all the industries which are phasing out because of modern technology.  Movies are an excellent example of an industry trying to compete with technological and social changes.  I could have used coal mining, or beach front property (climate change will swamp all those resorts) but let's talk movies.
