Pretty soon, cinema will become what live musical theater is today - upscale entertainment for the affluent and educated, just as Broadway did before them, and opera before that. In the mid-19th century, opera was mass-market entertainment.

People talking during the film, some doing spoilers, sound way to loud and the ability to pause and attend to nature's call without loosing part of the movie at home make streaming better. Oh, and the ability to review parts on some platform is a big plus.

Gwynne: People also have larger TV's at home, with better resolution - you don't feel
that you're missing much.
I love the atmosphere of the cinema, and it's more of an event than watching a movie
at home. But sometimes home is just so more convenient. And cheaper, too - cinemas
are getting very expensive.
