I've come to the conclusion that a not insignificant number of people (some on this board, too) are perfectly happy with the arrangement that theaters remain closed forever. they got their home theater so what do they care? just pony up a hundred bucks a month for your half dozen different streaming services, you underlings.

Would you really have wanted your first viewing of Avengers: Endgame to be in your basement?

This is also somewhat of an elitist attitude, since the overall number of people who actually have arrangements like you're describing isn't really that high, and is limited to the upper-class set.

Also, the answer the question: I'm assuming at some point the theaters and studios would successfully lobby the Biden administration to cut a huge check to bail out theaters.

I don't have a basement but I would have been fine seeing it at my house.

It's is an elitist attitude to say that people can only enjoy a movie by going to a theater to watch it.

In the long run steaming movies are dramatically cheaper than theaters.

Like I said, they're probably expecting Biden to cut them a check.

You'll notice I didn't actually say that.

The other guy actually used the word "underlings." If that doesn't reflect an elitist attitude, I'm not sure what does.

Probably because today's the last day a complete moron is in charge of the country. Probably hoping Biden gets this cleaned up quicker.

I might be wrong but I think we're going to see the eventual death of the theater.

I think it was going to happen in the next 10-20 years even without Covid.

Traditional Theatres is probably going to be slowly dying. But the fancy theatres are probably going to stay afloat depending on how long covid is year.

I went to the theatres twice early last year to watch 2 mediocre films (The Grudge and Invisible Man) on opening weekend.
Grudge - we saw it at one of the special all inclusive theatres that serve alcohol and diner food. It was packed.
Hollow Man - saw it at a traditional theatre, it was pretty empty. Maybe 10-20 other people.

  • When Covid ends, I want to go watch a movie in the 4d or whatever it's called (3d plus moving chairs and such).
