Hell is an idea first born on an undigested apple dumpling

Yesterday after paying $7.25 for the movie we saw I realized something. I don't think movie theaters are going to be around in 10 years. They're getting to expensive. Especially with the push for all this new surround sound equipment and digital projectors etc... The cost of displaying a movie for their customers is going up.

Look at the old video arcades. They aren't around anymore, not really. Every mall used to have a video arcade, now they're scarce. Why? Because everyone went out and bought a Playstation or a Nintendo 64 that can do better graphics at their house. Tough competetion...

Same thing is going to happen to movie theaters. DVD players are cheap, and surround sound systems are becoming increasingly common. I can get the "movie theater experience" at home now. With ticket prices being so high, and DVD prices being so low what's the incentive for me to go to the theater? It's certainly not the sticky floors, greasy popcorn, or that guy behind you that never shuts up.
