Then again, Lucas and Spielberg also think movies may some day soon cost $150 to see in theaters.

Ahahahahahahahahaha. Somebody please shoot both of them, in case their brand of utter fucktardery is contageous. If movies start costing double what they are now, most everyone will stop going to see them. $150 for a movie? They are fucking insane. We already knew this about George Lucas, but I guess Spielberg is next. It probably IS contageous.


I disagree it'll hit $150, but their reasoning that gets them there isn't all that bad - people are getting better and better home systems and there's less and less reason to actually go to movies. People still enjoy it for meeting people, but attendance is falling fast enough that theater owners should be nervous.

That's all true enough.

From there, they just posit that the only theaters that survive will be ones that really go all out and do significantly more than what theaters today do. Ones that are more comfortable and higher quality and have more services and cost, in their words, $50, $100, or maybe even rivaling a sports event at $150.
I kind of get why they go there, but, again, theaters today suck compared to ones of the 40s and 50s because they've learned that people don't give much of a shit. They want a good movie at a good price and air conditioning. Nothing else. Price, really, matters a ton.
