The day pass is a great deal how many movie would I really want to pay $16 for? Not that many but I pay $16 to spend a whole day at the theatre once in a while maybe watch the same movie twice or take a chance for your second or third movie on something you're not sure you like but are curious. It change the whole experience from one of quick consumption to one of exploration.

When you think about it the multiplex is the only medium build that way. Cable and Sat got classic channel for classic TV and Movie, Libraries and Amazon got classic section with great author highlighted. Radio whatever it in FM/AM or streaming got classic channel for every genre of music you could think off. The Multiplex is the only medium dedicated to pumping new content all the time the faster they can milk a movie the better.

I would not be surprised if Windows 8 at least the home version is the last Windows version for home usage that you ever have to pay for. Odds are they go the Bic way for W9 home edition.
