The fact is-- there may just be a market for this type of theater. As of late, movie theaters in general have been suffering, due to both the advent of DVD/Home Theaters, as well as the rise in plain old bad movie theater etiquette. How many times do I have to sit there while some jackass types a text message, or even worse takes a cell phone call? That's why theaters used to have ushers.
The other perk to these deluxe theaters is that they will also include a bar an food made to order. Then again, it only takes one tub of lard to go chomping away on a burger and fries through the movie to ruin that idea. I'm not sure if the area to eat in will be separate or what, but that is definitely a consideration. The only other problem I foresee with these theaters arrangement is the price. $35 is a lot of money for most people, even if it does guarantee a quiet, peaceful screening. In reality, I think the price of admission would need to be around $25 for people to give this a shot.
However, I think it would make a fantastic first date, or a night away from the kids. To be able to sit back, have a cocktail and watch a film in luxury sounds awful tempting to me, but then again most people aren't as interested in movies as I am. So, that is the question I pose to you-- Do you think deluxe theaters sound like a good idea?
