^All good points. In five, ten, or 15 years I'll for sure be enjoying LP's movies more than the single Sony film from 1998. Still i'm not sure about ticket prices. The theater nearest me has fully converted to upscale reserved seating, at $12 a pop for GA. This would mean at least $50 for my family to go to the theater every time, and I have a close friend who does just that, probably closer to $80 after concessions with his 3 boys.
I myself though, found a theater that is about 10 miles away. its a bit more well-worn, but you can see brand new movies there for $5.00 matinee, and $7.50 GA. We just make sure we plan to eat before or after the film, so no concessions. Its pretty much the only way we see a movie now, unless we want to wait 2-3 months and see it at the mall which are $4.00 for tickets, which now with streaming, and home media releases getting shorter and shorter makes less sense.
case in point- captain marvel was made available for digital download just 81 days after its theatrical premiere (or 11 weeks 3 days). It hasn't even hit the mall yet, but probably will next week, at the same time as the DVD release
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.
