3) Streaming services (such as Disney+) are foregoing theater releases and instead are offering new releases via their streaming services. For example, the much anticipated live-action Mulan film will be streamed for Disney+ subscribers for an additional fee.They want $29.99 to see that here.
If that's the price that's gonna be standard until the theaters are back to normal viewing...wow
True. But that price is per viewing - not per person viewing:
If you are a family of four, it works out to $7.50 per person (that's about 1/2 price compared to a regular movie theater ticket).
If you are viewing with another person ("date night"), then it works out to $15 per person (about the usual movie theater ticket).
Plus there are other "perks" to watching it via streaming at home such as being able to pause/rewind/etc., cheaper concessions, and watching on your schedule - not the movie theater's schedule.
Personally, I will wait until it goes to Redbox. But if someone is the "gotta see it as soon as it is released"-type person, then the Disney+ offering might be a good deal for them.
One of the non perks is that taking the family to see things in the theatre seems to make everyone pay better attention than having a movie night at home...because your at home and there’s other stuff to turn to instead of trying to follow along.
Anyways I hope that this stuff can get back to the theatres sooner than later.
