Streaming services are definitely hurting theaters. You have so much content at your disposal at home now. I love the theater experience, but price wise it’s gotten silly. I can’t afford to take my kids to the movies that often. And then there’s the people that want to talk and be on their phone the whole time for some stupid ass reason. Unless I go to a matinee, average ticket prices in my area are around $12. If I wait four months or so for the home digital release, I can buy the damn movie for $14. It sucks sometimes not being able to join in the conversation sometimes right after a films release, but 99% of the time, I just wait for home release and buy the damn thing.
