Wombler yeah I agree, the problem is prices are high, but you don't get anything for it. Same old cinema, same old seats and so on. I do prefer watching things in real omnimax, you know where the screen is HUGE and all around you, those cimenas looks like a golfball from the outside. You can't beat that experience, but then again not realistic for movies probably.
And you are right, people who watch a lot of movies and enjoy it, they do get a projector, soundsystem and so on, and probably only go to the cinema to watch a few movies, as before they where the movie-goers that spent money on it and over the years, this income has been lost for the cinemas.
If you pay lots of money for cinema, you do expect something for that money, way more than you get in todays world. And with the economy people do save money in anyway you can so this is allso bad for lots of things out there.
Anyway, I do hope that 4K cinemas will at least bring the prices down a bit, as the distribution and all of that is a huge cost from what I have been reading on the net about this issue. But I guess the end consumer prices will stay the same regardless.
