So this is the new normal?

This is what theaters are going to be now? Dispenseries for old classics as Hollywood is completly creatively bankrupt and even remaking formerly successful franchises is not safe enough of an investment? How do you feel about this?

          This happening occasionally wasn't that weird, but what makes the recent string of releases strange is it's happening so frequently as actual new movies are just that unpopular. It's only been happening the past couple years that we had this happen with so many movies.

          I don't understand the problem people have with this. Why would I be upset that I get to see some of my favorite films of all time, movies that I never had a chance to see when I was younger, at a quality that even the highest 4K rips will never be able to compete with, for a movie that is beloved all over the world, over some mindless A24 slop of the week?

          It's a sign of how bad Hollywood is doing that movies from decades ago are more popular than new releases. They're movies you could quite seriously just watch at home if you wanted and they're still doing better than the studios' major projects.

              Studios were honestly surprised that during the strike that no one was working on any projects privately. It meant when studios were able to get back to work again they were expecting a flood of scripts coming in and instead had frick all.

              It's a problem for the studios since they're not going to get much for the box office for someone playing a DVD in a theater and it keeps people in Hollywood out of work.

      Not really. Re-issues of old films only worked up until the late 1980s when VHS was still new/expensive and a lot of older films were not available on home video or didn't air on TV regularly as part of syndication packages of old films.

      Big theater chains and mom and pop theaters don't like re-issues because they don't make money since they take theater space away from new films that make money. The only places that routinely show old films are boutique theaters, often in big cities, that run for a loss and which cater to the arthouse crowd.

          >places like Disney have diversity requirements for shows and movies to get the go-ahead
          that's because hollywood completely revolves around the self suck award shows, oscars, golden globes, emmy's and tons of way lesser known award ceremonies so people collect their participation trophies from people they have known for 30 years.

          I love it whenever I see articles with disingenuous titles like "Hollywood baffled by lack of audience engagement" or "Why is no one going out to movie theaters anymore?" They fricking know exactly why, they're just going to keep denying it, shutting their eyes, and piloting the plane towards the ground.

            That’s because its the same israeli overlords who control the media who keeps forcing multiculturalism and “inclusion” in movies and tv shows as well

      Because the israelites have israeliteed themselves and now these pozzed millennials have the entire movie industry in a chokehold. They can’t stop it without being branded as racist and homophobic and then they get cancelled and chased out of hollywood. It’s pretty funny actually.

    I hope so. I'll actually go to a movie theater to see classics on the big screen.

    If Hollywood is going to keeping making absolute dogvomit nobody wants to watch, and there are people who still want the 'theatre experience' and will pay for good movies instead, then that's exactly what should happen. Money talks and bullshit walks.

    I don't know how that will work out for theatres, but good luck I guess.

    Yeah, there used to be these places called dollar theaters that would show second run or older movies, usually older theaters that no longer showed new releases and were privately owned. They'd have the usual popcorn and soda at the concession but had a better selection of candies. I remember going to a particular one in my town a lot when I was a kid, one time they showed a Rocky 1-3 marathon but for some reason they showed them out of order, 2-3-1. They also never gave a frick about checking IDs so I saw a lot of R rated movies there, and they'd also do late night weekend showings of weirder stuff like Faces of Death. All those places are gone now, and it seems like regular theaters have to show 25 year old movies you used to pay a dollar for just to stay in business.

      Went to drive-in movie theater a number of times, definitely preferred the concession stand they had to movie theater counters.

      >They also never gave a frick about checking IDs
      Possibly not a requirement for privately owned, like how private owned bars you can still smoke inside despite laws about indoor smoking.

    There's literally nothing wrong with that. I'd love to watch and rewatch old cool movies. The idea that a movie should only be available in theaters for a month and then never again is ridiculous.

    Theaters have been doing this for a long time, it's just being promoted by the media now.

    I enjoyed watching the 4K version of Akira when it was released in theaters a few years ago. That film deserves a nice sound system.

      >Akira
      As a big fan of weeb shit, Akira sucks mega ass and it's just not a good film overall. The people who say they like Akira are the people who "don't like subtitles" and watched the english dub which was actually one of the worst movie dubs of all time.

    I own the 4Ks of both of these. Guess I'm saving some money.

    Honestly, playing pic related is a better way for me to celebrate Alien Day at this point. It always feels slightly unpredictable while I've been watching the movies since high school.

    I've been going to cinemas that show old films all my life. Not new scans or re-releases (although those too), they'll just put on Rashomon or Back to the Future for a couple of evenings.

    I thought this was normal. In the UK you can get permission to show films and it's a bit like music licensing. Do people only go to multiplexes and only watch current releases, then they disappear forever?

    Fathom events has been doing this on a wide scale for like 20 years. Small theaters do it at their leisure.

    I went to watch Alien & Aliens in the theater right before COVID. The sound was good but that was it.
    I also saw the original Blade Runner, they showed the Final Cut. I lile the film but I honestly felt asleep by the end. It was a good sleep, surrounded by Atari and Pan-am ads.

    It underlines just how big of a clusterfrick the current slate of movies made for the non-existent 'modern audience' is.

    Seeing these old movies again is a undoubtably a better experience than watching anything released so far in 2024, Dune was mediocre.
