Film as an ever evolving Medium

Over the past 5 years or so, there has been a dramatic decline in cinema theater going, as home technologies such as Netflix, Hulu, and the Amazon Firestick, have grown in popularity. With that in mind, what does this mean for the future of the movie going experience? How do they maintain relevance in an industry that is quickly out growing their services?

  • I have said this before, and I will say it again, I do think monetary issues are a key reason in the decline in movie theater viewership. I have heard people countless times remark that they would obtain the film via. online streaming, a DVD, etc., to avoid the high cost of the movies. Also, now with the rise of 3-D televisions, people are able to watch the movies, as intended, upon filming. Not to mention the high-tech sound systems people have in their homes that allow for the same surround sound feeling that people go to the movies for. Another important aspect is the lack of quality of movies. All that appears to be released is another subsequent edition to a franchise, a remake, or a blockbuster film with hardly any dialogue and abundant reliance on special effects and CGI. On another note: I do not think your title--though I know this is just a suggested topic--adequately describes your topic. When reading the title, it appears as though you are going to discuss film in a positive light, yet you bring up all of these relevant questions that dispute the title. Even if you were to just add a question mark after your title, it would make more sense. – danielle577 6 years ago
