Has anyone been in a theater with more than 10 peeps inside this Feb/March?
We have a small theater with the marquee sign saying "Closed. Ran out of toilet paper."
They were going away soon anyway. $68 for me, my wife and 2 kids to go see frozen 2 + 2 drinks and large popcorn.
That was the last time we were going regardless of the current crises or hoax or flu with no vaccine. Whatever you want to call it.
It's not like there is a lot of overhead. Supplies aren't going bad on them.
And there will be HS kids willing to make $3/hr again, for some reason.
That said, I haven't been in a theatre in over a year.
Even when the shelter in place is lifted, who is going to go back to the theater full of people? I won't.
I haven't seen a full theater in over 20 years. How the he'll were they surviving before this?
Theaters need to die in a fucking fire, anyway.
This might be a BIG pro with COVID-19 is Hollywood realizes these dumbass theaters that nobody really wants to go to anyway but have to, because they want to see a stupid ass Disney movie can finally watch it from home. Amazon and sites have responded perfectly. Charge a premium and we don't have to pack in a theater with a bunch of annoying douche nozzle popcorn eating fags and their fuckhead kids... *this should not be modded and I assume will be an applaud by the community*
Movie theaters are basically the Hitler of entertainment. I don't even know what that means but I'm saying it. AND any dislikes to my post will PERSONALLY get banned.
We have the technology in place to easily get a movie theater experience with home TV/Sound. Thanks to China (too soon? Well fuck all of you) we can afford it for cheap, and having to go spend $100 for a family of 4 at a fuckin' theater that should cost $20 overall is ridiculous. Yet some service has come out charging $50K for in home movies plus the receiver? FUCK YOU HOLLYWOOD, I will forever rip off versions of the movie for free because of that.
"BUT THE SOUND AND PICTURE IS SO MUCH BETTER!" Seriously, go die in a fire. "But it's something to do with the kids!" Just be normal and pay some asshole High School kid half of what you'd pay for a theater and go out to lunch at Chipotle or something. Tired of these dumbass parents having kids and then looking for cheap reasons to entertain them. I'll entertain them for free with a BB gun and a hose.
I don't get why they straight r*pe for drinks. Pop costs jack shit.. same with popcorn
The last 3 movies I saw in a theatre are long ago.
The last one i saw was Terminator III in 2002 when on the road in Calgary.
Prior to that it would have been the Mario Andretti Speed Vision IMAX thing I saw while at a Vancouver Indy.
Before that it was the Jack Nicholson, Michael Keaton Batman.
You ever been to a baseball game...?
Because that is where they make their money. Most of ticket cost goes back to the studios. But the concession stands keeps the lights on.
Not just most, for the first 2-3 weeks all of the ticket sale money goes to Hollywood and the theater gets nothing. And then after that the theater still gets the majority of the money.
2 years for me, and before that about another 3 years.
The streamers now have the leverage.
I don't regret seeing A Star Is Born.
Before that, prolly the last few Star Wars movies while I was on the road for work.
Once in 1972.
Cost me $4 to get in, everything was cheap. Expos vs Pittsburgh.
Don't go because of the ridiculous cost, since most movies are crap anyway.
That might change if they go for the best talent, instead of whoever will show their tits or suck the director's dick.
I don't go, but I don't want them to die out either.
Maybe they'll bring back Drive-ins now, finally.
I read somewhere that the few remaining drive ins have been seeing an uptick in business since it's easy to social distance at a drive in.
Plus, it's just awesome
