Americans bought 1.26 billion movie tickets in 2014, according to preliminary estimates published by The Hollywood Reporter. It sounds like a big number, but for the film industry, it’s frighteningly low — a five percent decline since last year, and the largest year-over-year drop in nearly a decade. Most importantly, it’s the lowest attendance figure since 1995, suggesting dire news for a film industry still struggling with digital piracy.


I cannot remember the last time I went to a theater where I was not able to sit where I wanted to because it was too crowded.

Finding better ways to get people into the theater than 3D and $18.00 tickets. Maybe showing Twitch feeds?
