Re: Infrastructure
I can't watch 3D movies or VR content because it gives me serious headaches. I hope studios decide to release movies into the rental market much sooner. They can play with VR releases, but there are plenty of people who might be willing to rent a new release earlier (as a streaming option). They can get customers to rent early and get distribution deals for the big streaming services not long after.

Re: Infrastructure
I like this. Recently went to see the new Blade Runner in theaters, and even though it was a cool day outside, the theater cranked up the air conditioning. I was cold and uncomfortable for half of the movie. 

Movie experiences can be had at home, and IME will be the way it truly happens. I'm all for it.

Re: Infrastructure
This is an excellent point, consumers are finicky and if they have any problems early on it could drive away early adopters.

Re: Movie Theater AR
They're increasing adopting the "hybrid approach" though right?    They have to maximize exposure on a consistent basis--that's the big challenge.

Re: The end of the beginning
Ticket sales have been flat, though--right?   I can't help but wonder if the Threatre experience will go the way of the Black Friday Experience...only time will tell....

Re: Paramount launches 3D on your head
@freehe Sure some people don't want to pay more. I know someone who looks for the cheapest theater and foregoes the 3D experience to save on the ticket price.

Re: Paramount launches 3D on your head
@Ariella, I see you point. It makes sense. They would lose me as a customer because I think it costs too much to go to the movies so I don't want to pay or want my parther to pay more money than today's cost.

Re: Paramount launches 3D on your head
<The prie cannot be higher than the cost of going to the movie theater or they will lose the market they are trying to capture.>

@freehe I'm not sure they'd be bound by that. I know that some movie theaters charge more for the 3D experience than for the same movie without the 3D. Also you pay more to see a movie on an Imax screen than on a standard screen. Some people are quite willing to pay a premium price for a premium experience. If it were not for that fact, everyone would always fly coach and never upgrade to business or first class.

Re: The end of the beginning
The theater experience is what brings people to the theater anymore including the overpriced stale popcorn and the shared social experience. The movie is almost a secondary thought to the experience so I doubt that this will actually make a dent in ticket sales.
