Christopher Nolan Says Movie Theaters Won't Be Going Away Anytime Soon
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 07.09.2014



Christopher Nolan has written a new opinion piecve for the Wall Street Journal in which he discusses the future of the film industry. In the op-ed titled ""Christopher Nolan: Films of the Future Will Still Draw People to Theaters" (which you can read here if you're a subscriber), the Dark Knight director says that film will encounter some struggles as the home-based entertainment market expands but that theaters will not be going extinct.

Nolan writes in the piece, "The public will lay down their money to those studios, theaters and filmmakers who value the theatrical experience and create a new distinction from home entertainment that will enthrall -- just as movies fought back with widescreen and multitrack sound when television first nipped at its heels."

He continues on by discussing a potential "ratings" system that would allow theater owners more control over what films they show, which would of course be a blow to independent films. "The distributor or theater owner (depending on the vital question of who controls the remote) would be able to change the content being played, instantly," he says. "A movie's Friday matinees would determine whether it even gets an evening screening, or whether the projector switches back to last week's blockbuster. This process could even be automated based on ticket sales in the interests of ‘fairness'...Innovation would shift entirely to home-based entertainment, with the remaining theaters serving exclusively as gathering places for fan-based or branded-event titles."

He noted that this wouldn't last though, saying, "Once movies can no longer be defined by technology, you unmask powerful fundamentals -- the timelessness, the otherworldliness, the shared experience of these narratives."
