    Imagine being able to pick up a DVD of a movie you've just seen and loved at the movie theater on your way out. Imagine being able to pre-order a DVD to ship the day the movie opens. Imagine the owner of a digital movie theater who isn't worried about piracy.

    All of this may come to pass thanks to Mark Cuban's purchase of Landmark Theaters. Here's a link to the article in Wired news: Cuban buys art house chain.

    A quote from the article:

    Cuban is King!
    I know this guy is 'just' trying to make money.
    Who isn't?
    But man, everything this guy does, makes the audio/video experience sooooooooo much better.
    Has this guy, ever missed?
    Still have those fantastic HD images in my head from the Winter Games!
    Maybe, now it will be 'safe' to go too the movies again!

    Well with Lord of the Rings Two Towers Extended I feel I've bought a movie on DVD BEFORE I see it in theatres! Love my Trilogy Tuesday ticket! [​IMG]
