At the rate of movies going to theater in, for example, March and out on DVD or Blu-ray by September, and providing that 3D is available in home (which I must say is comparative to the theatre experience), it makes the pool of which movies to see in theater that much smaller.
I have only been to the regular movies about not even five times, notably to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 and Transformers: Dark of the Moon, both in 3D mainly. Other moviesI caught at a Atlanta’s only drive in to catch two movies for two people at a price LESS than going to the theater for one person.
As a writer, I wonder if writing for big theater flicks is the way to go. Times are tough and $15 a person is becoming a luxury rather than just something to do on the weekends compared to $3 that same night for three movies you may only watch once. Hmm.
Seems like a logical financial choice… then again if you watch your movies at home with popcorn, wings, soda, random candy treats like I do on a HDTV in the dark or dim lighting…for under $20 that night… then the choice gets even better!
I would still go to the movies for certain movies, usually big event flicks like 2012’s Avengers or The Dark Knight Rises. Anything else will take a test of measuring scales.
