Slap you're probably right. Unfortunately I've been in one too many discussions where you hit a brick wall and all you get back is "there isn't a problem here", "ticket sales are down so we're having to increase prices", "these are not the droids you're looking for", etc. Just looks like I've developed a mental tick...LOL.

Still, the opportunities are around creating a destination experience and that's got to be achieved with what's out there, not to mention what's coming up. Exciting times.

I'm out, Zedpha...

Always good to remember: "The show's the thing". Not many "home theatres" can offer a 25 x 60 foot curved screen with a clear, bright, sharp picture, and 10,000 watts of high quality sound. Can you?

Even a small auditorium with a 10 x 24 foot screen should put any "home theatre" to shame, or shame on you.

Nice and lively debate and I have no idea what will happen where and when. I have been at it half my adult life working for others much of the time and myself for the last 7 years.

Right now, I am less sure of anything than I have been in the past. Several things have caused it my second year in a row of really having a hard time might be part of the cause. I have been in love with the movie business for a long time but right now, it seems to me it is not really changing so much as just getting harder.

Changes do loom on the horizon but when they will happen is just a guess for anyone at this point. Will digital make it better for the operator or worse? Will the customer like it better than film? I have no answers to those questions and while I have always thought things will get better at this point, I’m not so sure.

If someone offered me the right price for my 3 screens in Woodward OK I would probable sell it. I don’t own the building for my 8 screen just the equipment and I don’t know that the landlord will give anyone a lease on it after the current one runs out.

I guess I have 5 years left to find out. I think he wants to operate it is the reason I say that. He has miss-represented the facts of ownership for years to many people and I just have a feeling he wants it. If when the lease runs out he will give me more than I can get by selling it to a company to strip it out we will sell the equipment to him. I just don’t know at this point.

I don’t know that I want out but I want it to be like before when we made money and didn’t stress and there was savings in the bank. Right now I don’t know if that will ever be the case again.

Quentin: Of course a woman is going to kill me. I wouldn't have it any other way!
