It's easily $75 in tickets for a family of 5 to see a movie in Los Angeles on a Friday/Saturday evening and they do that. {nm}

Variety: The Screening Room $50 Day and Date Home Video has Steven Spielberg, JJ Abrams, Peter Jackson as backers.   notfabio on Mar 11, 16:18

Brian Grazer and Ron Howard as well, all are shareholders. {nm}   notfabio on Mar 11, 16:19

Napster didn't save the music industry... {nm}   RamsFan2004 on Mar 11, 16:39

they live in a dream world if they think average joe will pay 50 bucks to watch a movie. people cut cable, and that costs 70-80 per month.. {nm}   Oleg Max on Mar 11, 17:11

you have to buy the $150 box first... then it is $50 per movie {nm}   RHAWK on Mar 11, 17:21

yeah. nuts. imagine paying 50 bucks for GRMSB :)   Oleg Max on Mar 11, 17:27

But it only takes one person to pirate the movie and it's out there in blu-ray quality {nm}   RamsFan2004 on Mar 11, 17:44

their plan doesn't make sense...   RHAWK on Mar 11, 17:45

+100 {nm}   RamsFan2004 on Mar 11, 17:46

its not for ones who cant afford a babysitter. {nm}   Moviesnob on Mar 11, 18:30

In a previous article it said 10% to the screening room company, 20% to distributors and (as much as) $20 to exhibitors.   MattW on Mar 11, 23:29

or for parents who have to pay a babysitter & parking {nm}   Moviesnob on Mar 11, 18:28

I'll explain the logic, but its a lengthy answer and I'll go on record now as saying this will fail at a $50 price point   Moviesnob on Mar 11, 18:56

It is a decent idea, but why the need for a box, Amazon or Itunes FTW. It's 'anti piracy' but what stops someone from taping with a camera {nm}   MarkDinse on Mar 11, 20:38

It simply will not work. Just like with flagging NFL tickets, the same will continue for movies. A system needs to be created that...   Willroast on Mar 12, 01:04

Hmm...Might not have been clear with my comparison. NFL is fighting folks preferring to watch at home, cinema is too. {nm}   Willroast on Mar 12, 01:05

If they can make a deal with Disney, the traditional theatrical window will collapse forever {nm}   Peterlee on Mar 11, 17:17
