Download torrents? You’re a Cinema killer. (Supposedly)

How about another chuckle on behalf of the entertainment industry and all things nerdy? The sign above is extremely clever and no doubt will turn a few heads/drum up talk about the theater. While torrents may cause some to not go to the theater since they already have the title that they would have gone to go see, I don’t see them being the main cause behind the closing of cinemas across the world. The real reason? Cinema’s aren’t giving people a reason to come there in the first place.

Would I rather torrent an HD movie rip or go to a movie theater and watch it in substandard quality on a massive screen highlighting every little imperfection? Hmmm. That’s a no brainer. More movie theaters adopting HD, 3D, and even more OMNImax…(read: not IMAX) theaters would go a long way in saving this industry. I don’t know about you, but I sure am tired of not having any good/unique theaters in my neck of the woods.
