Agreed, that's why I can't figure out why studios don't seem to be doing anything to help exhibitors.Without theaters budgets would have to drastically come down. You can't spend $200 million plus on a film and expect it to turn a profit from VOD.
Without any new titles of interest to moviegoers, theaters are going to have to shut down again. The local small town theater near me has apparently closed again, and the bigger multiplex that I often drive to has further cut back their showings to only Fridays-Sundays, and are largely showing discounted catalog titles (Hocus Pocus, Empire Strikes Back, Coco, The Nightmare Before Christmas).
