Will Movie Theaters Survive The Internet?

Will movie theaters survive the Internet? This is the 24-dollar question being floated around today by those who acknowledge the strength of the World Wide Web. Indeed, the Web has become the new boob tube. The Internet even offer movies rights in the comforts of your home or your office.

But why fear that when some naysayers predicted before the death of movie theaters with the popularity of Betamax and then the VHS and then the CD's and the DVD's. Now comes Internet rentals. You know why the movie theaters will stay? It's because it's a different experience, watching movies in a big screen. Unless of course you are one of the lucky ones who can afford the new 150-inch plasma TV by Samsung.
