A while ago it was possible to have a video store every other block and the king of them was Blockbuster. Now instead you see a Redbox on every corner and sad, empty store fronts. I honestly feel like that might be happening to movie theaters. Goodness knows films barely have time to be announced in theaters before they're shuffled off to the 1.50 theater and then released onto DVD. One of the things allowing them to hold on is that internet quality is very patchworked in many places - especially the United States, but that is slowly changing. So then as the title asks - will that progression in quality lead to a loss of theaters as people stay home on the couch instead? I hope not, but then it's been quite a while since I visited a theater myself.
