Why Are Movie Audiences Declining? Just Ask Roger Ebert
2011 will be a year quicky to be forgotten by Hollywood studios as they saw a substancial decline in box office revenues from 2010. This year will also go down as the lowest theatre attendance in more than 15 years.
Chicago Sun-Times movie critic Roger Ebert had his say in a recent commentary posted on his website. He pointed to 6 reasons why fewer of us are going to the theater. Among them:
1) Fewer mass-market blockbusters like Avatar
2) Tickets and Concession prices are much too high
3) The theater-going experience is no longer enjoyable
