Is Going Out to the Movies Becoming a Drag?


Avoid Common Movie-Watching Issues with a Home Theater Installation 

It’s no secret that commercial theaters have lost their luster. Ticket sales were already declining from 2000 to 2019, from 5 visits per person per year in 2000 to about 3.7 in 2019. There was an obvious plummet in sales over the next two years, but even by 2023, that number only went back to 2.47. The verdict is in: people prefer watching content at home. 

A recent poll found that only 32% of people prefer to watch movies in theaters. Of the respondents, 45% preferred streaming, and another 21% opted for cable TV. Why is that shift happening? It’s likely a combination of two things. The viewing experience at home is improving while the cinema experience is becoming worse and more expensive.
