I’m not even certain if cash will survive the Coronavirus. Nowhere/no one wants your dirty money.
Barring some huge changes, movie theaters are going to have a very hard time in the coming years.
The concessions are ridiculous and are only so expensive because theaters don’t make money on movies.
Personal or small group viewing rooms would be a great change in my opinion. I want to watch a lot of the movies that come out, I just don’t want to hear your opinions, or your kids, or listen to you combat your illness (Why the fuck arent you home?)
I would be willing to pay more than a normal theater ticket price (maybe even double) to have a personal theater experience. I would even be willing to pay for outrageous concessions if I knew I would be bringing it back to my private viewing room.
Innovation is going to save theaters, not Hollywood begging for bailout.
