Why People Don't Go To the Movies
Published on January 2, 2012 by Sara Foss

There's been a lot of hand-wringing about the fact that box office revenue in 2011 was down compared to 2010.

On his website, Roger Ebert offers some thoughts on why fewer people went to the movies last year, and I pretty much agree with all of them. Here in Albany we're lucky to have a good independent theater that brings a variety of films to town, serves decent food at its concession stand, and actually caters to an adult audience. But many communities aren't this fortunate, and so many moviegoers are forced to watch films in dreary mall-like environments that attract crowds of poorly behaved teenagers and various other fools.

Anyway, click here to read Ebert's thoughts.
