Future Talk Continues
Ok Nate, the “booths” are like those virtual roller coaster ride things you see at Incredible Pizza only they don’t necessarily move around. But anyway it would be like your living room in a way…if you have a killer screen and surround sound…but-Adam pay attention-but the reason you use this instead is the hot movies that just came out and not the kind of stuff you rent or can see at the dollar theatre. Also…you could have a little button that orders popcorn for you and they’ll bring it to you.
Theatres are hurting because they have to commit an entire screen to one flick. The big ones have to find 16 good movies to stick in there but they have to decide carefully. If 2 people want to see Aristocrats and that’s it, they shouldn’t have to dedicate an entire 150 seat room but they do. And if tons of people want to see Blazing Saddles II and a theatre only has 2 screens, they have to decide whether or not to double it up. This gives perfect supply and demand for the theatre real estate which would maximize their efficiency.
And the stress level would be way less too…no mass rushes to see the 7:15 showing of King Kong right when the 7:15 show of Narnia starts and Jodie Foster Has Another Tough Day gets out at the same time. Everybody would come and go at different times easing the popcorn booth, the bathroom lines, the parking.
I’ll have to tell you guys about my solution to drunk drivers next.
