Re: Ott Video and Summer Blockusters
..and to add on to your point, there is that convergence--look at how, for instance, "Captain America" has prospered--it started as a marvel comic, transformed into Television and now dominates the big screen.

It seems to me that we would want some level of restraint and control--don't we?   To me, it is a good thing--the last thing I want is to be like Europe.

TV/OTT content also don't have to deal with all of the politics of dealing with the MPAA. It means content doesn't have to be compromised because of ratings.

Re: Ott Video and Summer Blockusters
I think what's interesting is how the movie and television industry is competing with one another. Filmmakers now have to create storylines that go across movies. This is similar to television in that a series can hold the interest of a viewer much longer than movies.

Looks like Hollywood's outreach to international audiences is being reciprocated by investor interest in the studios, esp from China, latest example being Dalian Wanda, Tenent and DMG considering stake in Paramount.

Guess I'm just a movie gal
I am genuinely surprised by these numbers! (Should I be?) I love movies. And while TV is good, and in some cases, offers better entertainment, I still love movies too. What TV shows are these people watching, especially during the summer that they are finding them better than the movies? I need to see the Secret Life of Pets, Ghostbusters and Star Trek, and I have no idea when I'm going to fit all that in! The only TV Shows I'm watching, outside of the kids shows my kids watch, are Life Story on Netflix, and Game of Thrones on Amazon. I just think movies still has a place, but apparently I'm the odd man out.

Re: Agreed
@afwriter - That's very true - I think there are theatres that are moving quickly to improve the experience and add content beyond movies. For example some are having special screenings of major sporting events or concerts, political events etc. So they've become more of a digital event venue, and as you describe, making the experience more comfortable, even plush, for visitors. Then there's 3D, which hasn't worked in the home but has had some success in movies. So there are strategies they can explore, but not everyone is.

I was planning on writing about this myself.  I think that the quality and content has skyrocketed along with the fact that 55 inches is not a ludicrous size for a TV anymore.  Netflix and Amazon are rolling out movies that could go to theaters, but you get to watch them from your bed. 

On a separate note, some theaters are doing what they have to to survive.  I hadn't been to the theater in a few years, but I went a few weeks ago and the atmosphere was almost as good as the movie.  Reclinging leather seats and wine at the concession stand; there is still a place for theaters if they are willing to offer an experience like this.
