Cinemas Will Die Out And Museums Will Have To Evolve

Now that was ignoring the food, which was of course over priced, but still.

You can't touch an image in a movie, either, but viewing an object first hand gives you much more than just a 3D view. For intelligent people, viewing an artifact in person provides a sense of "presence" and "reality" that movies cannot. Neither can images shown on the Internet -- which also cannot be "groped".

My nearby theater also recently remodeled, and it is incredible. The seats are as comfortable as my recliner at home, with plenty of space between them you can actually stretch out a bit, and walk down them without turning sideways.
They still have problems with hearing bass from adjacent theaters (especially during previews), but there's really no way to avoid that aside from turning down the bass.
As for food and drink prices, I think that should be fixed by the FTC. I mean how are their food and drink prices not a blatant abuse of the monopoly created by their 'no outside food or drink' policy?

For general movies that I can give or take, I'll wait for the DVD (or whatnot).
But GOING TO THE MOVIES isn't just about the film, it's about getting together with friends (or lovers) and going out and having a shared experience. It's just different from watching it on the TV at home.
Same goes for museums. That's about getting some culture and seeing things first hand.
As much as I love and use Google to track down information, nothing will make me want to stop going to the museums.
Not that both theaters and museums can't use an updute, but they aren't going the way of the dinosaur (no pun intended) any time soon.

Otherwise you would have gotten the customary chills while looking at an item once held by someone famous being right in front of you.

This is going to me my next Audio/Visual receiver. Soon! Just an addition to my other three Pioneer Elite receivers + discrete amplifiers + hand-built 3rd order butterworth active crossovers + dynamic range expanders + parametric equalizers + Sunfire Subwoofer. + hm... Too many other intricate details to mention here. It takes me a complete weekend, just to rewire or tweak the 6 inch (in diameter) cable harnesses behind my current Home Theater system...
Pioneer Elite SC-09
Looks like a 12U rack computer doesn't it? I love computers and electronic systems...
Alas my home HD screen isn't six stories high.
