  • This guy in the blue and white shirts seemingly has an invested interest in streaming sites.. Honestly, I would hate to be a family member of this smug wanker, even his voice is annoying.. Movie theatres aren’t done, there’s no new releases so people aren’t going..simple.. The movie experience is great, you develop a relationship with a film as an art form when watching at the cinema, with no home distractions. Furthermore, people understand watching movies hi-def surround sound on the big screen is how movies are meant to be watch. Theatres may have to come up with inventive ways to attract the syndical old types, like that guy in the white and blue shirts, but once the pandemic is over people will return.

  • Million Dollar Potential in Ruvol I have invented a Board Game [still unpublished and not yet out in the market] that is guaranteed to be far more challenging and exciting than CHESS. I called it “RUVOL.” Over time, Ruvol will surpass chess as the “Number One Board Game in the World.” Why am I so sure about this? Because I am an avid chess player myself. The weakness of chess is it always starts in fixed positions that the opening moves become “memorizable.” In fact, not a few have so mastered the moves that they can play against their opponents “blindfolded.” It is for this very reason that the great Bobby Fischer introduced his so-called “Fischer Random Chess,” where the starting position of the pieces is “randomized” to make the memorization of openings impracticable. Fortunately, it is also for this reason that I invented Ruvol where “every game” has been calculated to be a challenging one to play. HOW IS RUVOL PLAYED? Ruvol is played somewhat like chess. It is played by two players. It uses a board that is rectangular in shape but contains more number of squares than chess. It has equal number of pieces on each side of the board, where each type of pieces moves in distinct ways. However, if the way to win chess is to checkmate the opponent’s king, the way to win Ruvol is to be able to cross a designated line. But there’s one big advantage Ruvol has over chess: The Ruvol pieces don’t have a fixed position at the start of the game. It is the players themselves who dictate the starting position, depending on the strategies they have planned before the game starts, making it impossible for any clever player to memorize the opening moves. A MILLION DOLLAR POTENTIAL IN RUVOL! The people who play chess will be the same people who will play Ruvol. In my Google search, I learned there are around 800 million chess players in the world. These 800 million players comprise the “Total Potential Buyers” of Ruvol across the globe. At an average profit of just US$3 per set, the “Global Income Potential” of Ruvol then is US$2.4 billion. Assuming only 1% of it will buy each year, the annual global potential sale of Ruvol is US$24M. I AM LOOKING FOR AN INVESTOR! For the reason that I don’t have the resources to publish Ruvol on a global scale, you might be interested to have the exclusive right to manufacture and market Ruvol globally under a “licensing agreement.” Or better yet, just “BUY MY COPYRIGHT” and Ruvol is entirely yours. Email me at: Thanks and God bless! RODOLFO MARTIN VITANGCOL The Ruvol Inventor

  • The App ~ tubi ~ has many very low budget garbage movies. Especially cheaply made horror films featuring horrible acting, idiotic stories, and most have very few locations which are 70% exteriors [forests, islands...] and 30% interiors [house/cabin in the woods, abandoned mines and hospitals...]. All to keep production costs as low as possible. A few of these disastrous movies are only watchable BECAUSE they are so bad, they're hysterically idiotic and therefore, fun.

  • Every time I hear some hipster idiot tell me we don't need movie theaters the future is streaming. These idiots parrot this line with such confidence that the transition will be seamless and nothing will change and it will be a just a new medium on how we consume our movies. I use to work in exhibition thankfully I have found a new job, I still love going to the movies, as much as it pains me to say I think the future of exhibition is bleak at best. What gets me though is how these idiots assume is how big Hollywood movies are going to profitable via streaming. Don't give me the Troll's world tour example either. It had a few factors going for it. It had the novelty of being the first major movie to go to streaming and many were interested to try it. Most importantly, most people were at home LOCKED DOWN, and they were DESPERATE to give their children some new content to watch rather than watching the same animated Disney classics on Disney+. If you think under normal circumstances that it would have done half the amount it did at that time than you are a idiot. Say goodbye to your Star Wars and Marvel content for the most part, I am sure Disney will be adamant for a while that streaming is a runaway success and that everything is dandy in the house of mouse....don't believe them. Their was already major piracy issues, and those issues are just going to get 10x worse now. Also your Disney+ will not be $6.99 a month much longer once they have enough subscribers that cost will gradually go up. Hollywood is dead! Accept it! You killed the golden goose and you will regret that you killed exhibition due to your greed

NOBODY!

  • He CLEARLY is NOT a movie goer! I love going to the theaters. Some people love going to the Ball Game every week, some people love going out to a fancy restaurant every week, I love going to the movies every week! And with that said I hate what is being done to the industry. I think it's ridiculous and I think it's a gross overreaction. Since some of the hysteria has died down, here in Atlanta, I have gone to the theater to see Tenet, Ava, an Unhinged. I loved it. It was like going to visit an old friend. LOL

She didn’t wear an overnight pad because she thought the movie was only 90 minutes. I did mention too her that it was a 3 hour movie. For some reason I always remember that experience.

  • Not sure where you guys live but the guy saying "we can't track one case to movie theatres or bars". It is opposite here, we have plenty of cinema infections and even a lot more in bars and restaurants. In fact we just closed all restaurants, bars and hotels for one month (starting tomorrow) just because tracing indicated they are responsable for a lot of infections. Doesn't take a genius to figure out every place people get together are dangerous.

    • @Veris No it isn't. Even ignoring the fact we acutally have protection against the flu which we lack here, no it isn't. Not only do we have way higher mortality rate than normal this year (actually the highest since the second world war), we also have many people who survived the virus but got long term health problems because of it. Disregarding all that, I hope it isn't you or your beloved ones that experience these effects, or worse. Minimizing the virus at this stage is almost criminal.

  • When we opened for the week, that they opened us back up. We were as busy during the week as we normally were for this time of the year. Mind you this was with old movies. It was the weekend business that was down. If the liberals would open LA and New York Hollywood would start giving us new movies again. We could only run at 30% capacity. That isn’t going to cut it.

Yes, a lot of us have big screen tv's and audio systems that rival theaters, but some of us like going out on dates, enjoy socializing, don't really care to watch people talk in virtual social rooms, while we wait our turn to speak with 10 other people talking, and oh yeah, enjoyed the movie going experience.

  • Going straight go streaming for new releases is a bad idea, disney+ was charging 30 buck for mulan. No way in hell they gonna get me to pay 30 bucks watching anything from home. I do like going to watch movies, especially if its a really good movie. But anytime I pay for streaming a movie at home, the most I am going to pay is 5 bucks. Basically I am using my TV in my house. Why should I pay more when the equipment used is provided by me to watch your content.

They own the media, news, sports, and Hellywood actors that are all sleeping with the devil. Wake up people! Take your mask off and breathe!

  • It's a balance...flying is mostly necessary for people who are traveling now. Plus, the airlines are implementing ways to change as well as filter the cabin air while people have to wear masks. Theatres are just entertainment...unnecessary indoor gathering...Maybe it's not as bad if everyone wears their mask and they do 50% max capacity and air flow. Plus, it's not a small room. But still, it's not necessary and indoors.

  • They can't link one, because the people who would be at a theatre would be at the bar, restaurant, everywhere. Either that, or it's just simply closed. There would be no definitive way to know where someone catches it unless they have been super isolated and live with no one and go to 1 place and get tested positive a few days later.

  • I think going to the movies got too complicated and expensive. I grew up with TWO competing theaters just down the street from me. And each had two well sized screens and seating within them. And even though they were rivals, they'd compliment one another with their titles. One theater may have a heavy drama and a action movie, while the other would have a romance and zany comedy. Within a month it would be a horror film and a mystery, and the other may have a sci-fi flick and a family film. 12 months - 48 movies - two theaters. Now it's these friggin 'Megaplex's' crammed in some mall or center, with 20 movies to choose from. The concession area is like a food court, and trying to find the chosen movie is like finding the gate for the Albany flight at LaGuardia. And what a crappy little unordained room it is! The last movie I saw at a theater was Unstoppable, and I was MAD after I saw it! The movie was cheesy enough, but having to go to this mall and this megaplex and the hoopla, and journey my way back home - IT WASN'T WORTH IT! And it was my birthday present, and I didn't even have to pay! LOL Had it been at one of my local old theaters, and could have a burger or a coffee across the street before and/or after - I may have had a better time even watching Plan 9 From Outer Space there. Can't blame Hollywood so much for it's incessant line of drivel, but the theater chains for trying to outdo themselves and their competition. About as meaningful and memorable as trying on and buying pants at Walmart.

  • Most interesting statistic I heard this summer regarding the movie theater industry from another Regal competitor was that they average 14% capacity. So except for "crush" times such as a Saturday night with a key first opening weekends (maybe a few weekends), they can do social distancing without a problem. For relatively low-cost entertainment, still best place to take a date. Also, the truly big screen for a number of movies is a cannot-miss experience unless your TV happens to be the wall. But the rudeness of people such as with cell phones going off, people talking throughout the movie, and sticky drinks spilled on the floor doesn't make for a quality experience. Plus now where you could be 25 feet away from the next group of people but you have to wear a mask for 2 hours is not an enjoyable experience. Also, Hollywood needs to get back to actually making quality films again. Way too many films are re-hashes of re-hashes of re-hashes.

The theater (SMG) is a “Dine In” theater and they are doing absolutely stupid things that will run off the rest of their customers!!! They are squeezing the customers who are willing to come in for Nickels& Dimes. And they wonder why no one is showing up!! I have been watching movies at this theater franchise since 1994 and have NO PLANS to ever go back!! We are adopting a philosophy that any corporate entity that doesn’t show some Corp courage we will never ever patronize again!! Vote with your money! That is ALL these idiots get!!

That movie theaters would have to become experience theaters with food & beverage served at the table and immersion sound systems with kinetic feedback motion in the seats and there is even technology existing to make movies holographic that can be shown in the middle of a circular audience. Technology changes the demands of people and Where and How they want to consume content. Holographic keyboards now exist with projection on cell phones which will soon be coming. You won't even need virtual reality goggles anymore.

  • Consumers are not warry to go to theaters, we don't want to go because Hollywood is not releasing any good movies. And I love going to the movies.

  • I worked at regal and I knew at least in New York City that Regal Cinemas was done for after Cuomo allowed bars and restaurants to open but not movie theaters. Not even AMC was open. I enjoyed watching movies but now theres nothing new to watch until next year. If anything, the company doesn't want to loose more money so they'll most likely shut down alot of their locations.

  • Could over a decade of awful cinema have anything to do with it? Anything at all?
