Will cinemas exist in 10 years???

As title, many people have large 40+ inch tvs or 100+ inch projectors connected to a media pc of some kind and the ability to get hd films for free from the net sometimes before they're even in the cinema! Will people continue going to the cinema when alot of people can do much the same in their home without the cost and hassle?

Yes people will always go to cinema.

Yes.

think they will always exist-people just like the cinema experience.
#4
Nothing beats going to the cinema to watch a movie. I can see closures in the future though, as numbers of cinema-goers start to drop even further.
#5
You can't beat a big blockbuster movie than at the cinema no matter what TV sytem set up you have. There will always be a market for it I hope.

viewing experiance is often far better in a cinema. The exception is my local, with small seats, small screen and puny surround in most their screens.
#7
people will never stop paying for overpriced pop corn
#8
I prefer home atm, few screens round here that good.
#9
unless the world ends in the next ten years, cinemas will still be around.

Fingers crossed that 3D won't exist in cinemas by then though.

Nah, they'll probably have moved 4D from the Theme Parks into the Cinemas by then oO

Movies will be piped directly into your brain so you will think you are at the cinema.

They will still manage to charge you £4 for a coke though.

Got to admit I love going to the cinema. I've got one of the unlimited cineworld passes so I go quite a lot, however I wouldn't go nearly as much if I had to pay full whack for a ticket...
#19
I haven't been the cinema in over ten years.

I can never understand the pricing structures at places like cinemas, I would have thought if they lowered the prices to say £3-4 for anytime they would get a lot more people in (increasing income on food and drinks) and make a bigger profit.
They seem to think it's better to have fewer people and charge a lot more. Our local is packed on Wednesday's for obvious reasons, why don't they make it permanent, do they not make enough progit on a Wednesday and if so why do they do it then.

Football ticketing prices are the same. if my local none league team was much lower I'd probably go down and watch them.

Don't think it will be very much of a family thing in 10 years time though as they are already pricing them out much like football has done with many.

It will just be a case of those taking out the girlfriend and those that can't get a girlfriend. X)

Too true. Wages arent increasing at anywhere near a similar rate as cinema and football tickets are.

I like the new 3D scam, tickets are £2-3 more and then you have to buy the glasses extra at another £1.50!

If idiots didn't pay it they wouldn't be able to get away with it.........mind you they still would, they'd just blame piracy for shrinking revenues and put prices up to compensate..........oh wait, they did that already.

True and sky got/get blamed for reduced attendances and why 3pm saturday matches are banned from being on TV! If you look back on historical football attendances they were far higher in the 50's and 60's than now for the vast majority which directly relates to ticket prices.

cheaper to buy the blu-ray than 4 of us go to the cinema and get to keep it too, only a 4-5 months turn around from Cinema to Disc, easy
#28
The cost of ticket prices is to payback the cost it takes to get the film. Cinemas make money on the overpriced confectionery not on the tickets. Or so management explain to their staff.
#29
I think also its the fact that younger people these days(as they get younge rmore so within reason) people are like "why buy somethign when you can get something for free?" I know loads of students who never rent or buy dvds only download and these are all relatively wealthy students, if you want to read a book, get a free ebook, if you want to watch a tv show download it, if you want a game download it.

Its seen a huge increase in the past 4 years or so since fast internet has become available in the UK and very cheap pc's(almost unheard of a few years ago for people to download apart from people with custom pcs!)

In answer to the initial question, absolutely they will exist.

But will libraries still be around in 2021...

Really? With all the council cuts and the low volume of people that use public libraries, they will surely be the next thing to go. I gurantee that libraries will close as they merge ones that are close to each other, leaving just 'Super Libraries' in the future.
