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

  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.
