On Demand Movie Theaters
John Rogers at Wired News reports:
The three are working on a new digital film delivery system that, if successful, could give theater operators the flexibility to put a popular movie on an extra screen as quickly as the demand for it arises. At the same time, theater operators could boot out a surprise stinker and even book in for a day or two an art-house film with a small but devoted audience.I suppose, a group could even schedule a showing in advance--like the Rocky Horror Picture Show at a more reasonable 9pm (rather than the usual midnight).
