Why don’t we go to the Cinema anymore?

As the cost of “Home Cinema” has fallen and the quality of downloads and internet speeds have increased, consumers have embraced new technology with enthusiasm. Meanwhile, cinema-chains in major population centres in Australia have raised prices, and built new multi-plexes with even more screens. While some costs have fallen for cinema-owners, due to new technology – digital projectors, automated ticketing – the decline in attendance is often blamed for rising ticket prices.
