Submission + - Ebert:I'll tell you why movie revenue is dropping (rogerebert.com)

  1. No blockbusters like Avatar
  2. Ticket prices are too high.
  3. The theater experience.
  4. Refreshment prices.
  5. Competition from other forms of delivery.
  6. Lack of choice.

The message I get is that Americans love the movies as much as ever. It's the theaters that are losing their charm. Proof: theaters thrive that police their audiences, show a variety of titles and emphasize value-added features. The rest of the industry can't depend forever on blockbusters to bail it out.
