Yea, I laugh every time someone predicts movie theaters will die.
You have bored teenagers with money that want to get out of the house and don't have much else to do.. Teens have always watched the majority of movies. Middle aged guys (like the author probably is) don't watch many movies and forget about the teens.
Our family goes to movies occasionally just to get out of the house and do something different. Seeing "Thor" on a TV set just isn't the same, unless you are in a million dollar home theater room (and that's not going to be cheap in 20 years).
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
