Over the past couple years, my attendance at a movie theater has dwindled down to almost 0. The reason is simple: people have gotten so used to watching movies at home that they cannot stop talking to their friend(s)/partner at a movie theater.

Am I willing to pay $50 to listen to other people talk incessantly? No! I'll pay Netflix my monthly fee where I can stop the movie until the speaker finishes her thoughts, then I'll rewind, and begin to watch my movie in peace.

I agree with another responder where he said something like "until movie theaters can offer something the viewer can't get at home, they will continue to lose money.

Far more interesting internally than externally. I write to quiet the voices. Deleted Facebook & Twitter thereby immediately quieting 1000’s of voices.
