Are cinemas going dark: Movie theaters battle with cable, HDTVs for customers


Robert Boucher and his son, Robert Boucher Jr., made up half the patrons who filed into Dover's Strand Theatre Thursday evening to see "10,000 BC."

The father and son spent $30 for two tickets, some popcorn, a large soda with two straws and box of Milk Duds. They usually go to the movies once monthly.

"It's a nice, quiet night out," Robert Boucher said. "It's more of a bonding thing."

Several technological changes, including the ability to watch movies on the Internet or hand-held devices or access pay-per-view films at home on television have created tough times for the movie theater industry.
