      The problem like they said is people don't need to go to the theater anymore since they can just wait for it to hit streaming barely a month later. No one wants to pay $40 to see a movie in theaters just so they can see it before people stream it. They went on about how seeing a movie actually meant something before the days of streaming because you literally had to wait a 6 months to a whole year for it to come out on video just to watch it again. So if you missed out you really missed out because there was no other way to see it. Now, who cares? I missed out on the movie I wasn't sure about spending $40 on seeing? Whatever I'll just watch it at no additional cost to what I'm paying to watch literally everything else on the streaming service it's gonna be released on.

      Funny enough I watched a thing on how streaming is dying because it keeps jacking up the price and dealing with people who pay for a quick membership just watch one thing and cancel it, thus not really getting revenue all because of their method for putting out original content. Basically for it survive as long as TV did is for it to become exactly like TV. You make them the same length as TV shows 20+ or 40+ minutes, have ad breaks, have the budget cover like 20+ cheaper episodes instead 8 really expensive ones and release the episodes weekly as opposed to all at once so you can build up actual hype. You can't build hype when it's dumped all at once, people binge it and then have nothing else to watch for months on end until the next big dumping of a show happens. Dishing it out slowly allows people to discuss it and speculate what's gonna happen next. You can't do a good two parter story when you're dumping it all in one go because there's no pause between the episode to build that week long tension that will get more people to wanna watch.

      The whole instant gratification for a quick profit thing Hollywood has been banking on is the very thing killing it because it's not working now.

      Their solution was: eliminate competition between theatres by giving high quality low budget films focused runs. Their other suggestion was to delay release to streaming in order to force people into theatres if they want to see a movie.

      The first part is dumb because there's no guarantee the movies selected will have broad appeal (if there were a tried and true formula to hit that target more often than they do now it would already be in use). The second part is good on paper but streaming entities are their own thing and will produce content to compete. Also note that the market is in their favor already so it's not like a company will go all in on their dying enterprise by reducing their ability to compete in one that's growing.

      It was an interesting video but their ideas were dumb. It's basically a weird version of entertainment communism where distribution chains gather together and magically the products they produce are quality. On top of that it ignores the growing innovation of streaming while thinking an archaic one of going to a theatre can force itself to remain relevant.

        these 2 dipshit boomers are like "how do we save the horse drawn carriage?"

        See that's my point on "survivng" vs "thriving."

        There IS a market for horse drawn carriages. But it is incredibly niche. Amish people, movie/TV productions, funeral processions of kings probably still use those... and do they still do those rides in New York or was that destroyed by diversity? Anyway, the "horse-drawn carriage" industry still exists. It's just not very large.

    Anonymous

    I can see his logic but I don't think it will work. "Surviving" and "Flourishing/Thriving" are not the same thing." If the concept of the theater gets smaller and more niche, then the audience will come. But it won't be End Game-level ever again.

    Also, all his ideas to "save" cinema were fricking stupid because none were "serve beer and food." All the "dollar theaters" in my own, 20 years ago, had tables and served food and alcohol. You go in there and pay $1 to see something but then pay $45 on food and drink. And it doesn't feel like there's a metal pole up your ass because the food isn't 3¢ popcorn sold at a 5000% markup. Even if it IS marked up.

    Also, the "real theaters" in the "real city" I lived in for a few years, right before I moved back to the town I grew up in, right before corvid happened, they started serving draught beer, and THAT did get asses in seats. But I guess they're all just as dead now because of everything else. But I don't know, I don't live there anymore.

      While I agree, there will always be a market for movies. It just won't be as ubiquitous as it was for 100 years. It'll have to be small screens in what are effectively dingy porno theaters. 25 seats at the absolute maximum, assuming five seats in five rows. It'll be like Jay said, "vinyl still exists," but applied to "the movies."

      Except that year over year vinyls sells than CDs. But his point was clear regardless. You'll never fill a metroplex again.

        No. I live in Council Bluffs, IA. There's a 17 theater AMC + IMAX.

        There was 6 people at the IMAX.

    i think that covid broke people of their habit of just going to see whatever was in theaters. the general quality of movies is about the same as it was before 2020 (meaning: a bunch of shitty sequels and remakes), and some movies are still drawing people to theaters, so it's just a matter of people going to see what they actually want to see instead of just going to see whatever they saw a commercial for. a good example is that five nights at freddy's movie. it had a simultaneous streaming and theatrical release, but it still had a $300m box office, because it had an audience of people who actually wanted to go and see it. just looking at what's coming out in the summer, and i get the impression that there are going to be a ton of flops that would have done pretty well in 2018

          Apart from refusing to talk about the woke virus that is killing interest in movies, it's not as if people aren't willing to go.

          Men went in massive numbers to see Top Gun Maverick, women went in massive numbers to see Barbie, families went in massive numbers to see Super Mario Bros.

          People will go if there is something they REALLY want to see, too much shit in a short period of time has killed any notion of 'lets go see a movie just because', now it needs to be something that is a real crowd pleaser for the main target demographic, which in turn needs to be big enough to sustain its budget.

          Fall Guy was a shit movie, it looked good on paper, two likable stars, lots of action. Reality is that it was a mediocre romcom with some zero stakes action sequences in it given that everything was played for laughs, and the main leads had zero chemistry. Furiosa was a sequel to a box office bomb where the franchise lead character was not only sidelined, but missing in this movie, like what the frick.

          It's not just one movie in all theaters. The theaters are still having multiple showings of other movies. It's just that the movie theaters would agree to collectively gamble on a single movie that they will also play in the hopes it's a huge hit.

    The point is big studios are making the most expensive turds of all time back to back while smaller studios are raking in from making small scope/small budget movies. Those big studios movies are so fricking expensive, and I don't understand how these shitters baloon to over 300m. John Wick 1, amazing movie, great cinematography, fight choreography, respectable scope (Retired assassin goes on a rampage after his former employer's son robs him and kills his dog, it's not far fetched and it doesn't go much further than New York and New Jersey.) 20 million dollar production budget, opened at 49m in the US box office. Shit like Argyle looks fricking stupid, the stakes and scope are completely moronic, 300m to produce and all the CG looks like ass.

      my theory is that the reported production costs are highly inflated on the front-end nowadays as a means of saving them from doing creative accounting later

    If you want a real way to save cinema then make movies an event like festivals where you can't just go any time you wish. Will save tons in upkeep like hourly employees when you can instead have temps during showings.

There was a recent on where Rich seemed to be in a genuinely bad mood. Not an “Aw shucks, we have to watch these bad movies” fake bad mood but a genuine “I’m being forced to be here right now, and I would rather be anywhere else right now, but that YouTube money is too good to pass on” kind of bad mood.

    There is one thing RLM's "Death of Cinema" video didn't mention, and I think it's really important. It's the reason why I stopped going to theaters. Cinemas have an extreme lack of diversity. And when I say "diversity" I don't mean it in the modern sense of the word, meaning "all black people" I mean the old fashioned "diversity" with actual different types of movies.

    In 2006 I saw 40 different movies in theaters. I saw big budget blockbuster films like Mission Impossible 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean 2, I saw independent extremely low budget thrillers like Bug and The Night Listener, I saw kung-fu films like The Protector, I saw European films like Perfume, I saw horror films like Silent Hill and An American Haunting, I saw dramas like The Good Shepherd and Blood Diamond, I saw historical films like The Prestige, police films like Miami Vice, art house films like The Fountain. Not all of them were good but at least there was variety. And all of these films got WIDE RELEASES in theaters. Wide releases. I didn't have to hunt down the one theater these films were playing at like a cinematic game of Where's Waldo?

    When's the last time a kung fu movie got a wide release in the US? Or an art house film? What's the most recent police movie that came out? Can you name one from the past 10 years? That's why theaters are dying. Lack of diversity. It's like theaters bank their whole profit margin on two films and no one wants to see either.

      one of the big problems is todays audience. zoomers dont give a shit about most movies, and people complain about endless remakes and sequels but those are some of the only financially successful films anymore. for example, the last duel came out a few years ago, had A-list cast and got great reviews, bombed horribly. this is the number 1 reason cinema is dying: our culture is garbage and people couldnt be dumber

    Their viewpoint wasn't very consistent. Mike complains that movies are too expensive but then also says the only point of theatres is big high quality tentpole movies.

    I think the major problems are a) more people are alone and movies are a date night thing, in general people are more atomised and alienated from each other b) movies are lame and gay

    I will say it is contemptible they make a few shots at anti-woke youtubers, as if they don't hold the same views. Its such a smug gen x thing its like "Woah man, isn't Star Trek Discovery bad.

    Have you ever been walking or driving through town at night and thinking, well what the hell do I do now? You slept all day so you can't sleep now. The town is dead. Where are the people hanging out?

    The theater could be that place. A social hangout for an antisocial generation. Instead of tickets for each film you buy a monthly membership. It's set up like a series of big living rooms, comfortably to eat and drink and even talk to people during the movie. People already pay to get this experience alone, the difference is paying for the same experience but with strangers.

    You could also have a kid's section and families get a family plan and then they can come as much as they want to watch kid's movies or go into the toy room.

    I think this could work, the only problem is how to keep Black folk out.
