I'm not sure if this is due to corona virus shutting down the movie theaters but seems we can stream new or current theatrical releases for $20 per movie.. Hmm I have other options but I'm curious, do you think $20 is a good price for this option? Should it be less?do you see yourself paying to watch movies this way?

Purchased “Onward” for the kids and plan on purchasing the second Troll movie when it comes out. 
 

I think it’s fantastic and should stay in place after all of this blows over. Going to the movies is usually like $100 affair (~$70 for tickets and another $30 for snacks) so I’m more than willing to drop $20 on this.

Pay more to watch at home than at a theater on a gigantic screen. I mean I have a 70" but nothing compares the the theater experience. 

 

Too much imo. I'd do $15

Where?

This is what i've always wanted.  As much as i love seeing movies, i hate the movie theater experience.  Black people and young kids always ruin the experience they don't ever shut the fuck up

There's nothing playing now where I can't find a better choice on Netflix or Amazon Prime.

Quickest way to lose it to the torrent sites, imo. Not very well thought out. 
if they want to do this, theyve gotta do more than 1-off ppv. Consolidation of some movie houses and subscription based. Rival/swamp netflix for big theatrical productions. 
why it’s not happening already is surprising to be honest.

The second time i saw the newest Star Wars movie i sat next to a black couple, probably in their 30's.  I shit you not they had full on conversations during the entire movie.  And since they're black everyone is too scared to tell the to shut the fuck up....  me included i don't mess with black people lol its a lose lose situation if we're being honest

 

And the 6th and final time i saw Avengers Endgame, yeah that's right SIXTH time, some oldhead fell asleep and was snoring for about an hour of it.  So damn annoying

 

So yes i would love to buy new movies at home and i WOULD pay extra to do this

Going by myself is pretty much the only way I like to go now, to an early movie. My wife and kid would just ruin it for me anyway

Where can you rent them?  I haven't seen anything on Netflix or Prime.  Am I not looking in the right place?

BTW, $20 seems like way too much.  It's roughly $15 at the movie theater and you get a massive screen with a massive soundsystem, 3D for some movies, and overall a full experience.  Granted, that's per person so for a family of 4, renting at home works out to $5 each which is in fact a good deal.

But for one person watching alone it's not that great of a deal.

That said, once the movie streams, I'm sure it'll show up on a bunch of other streaming sites.

I can see for families this being reasonable but lacking the monster screen and sound system makes it not worth it if it’s just me and the wife.

That's true for just you.

However, ever take yourself, wife, and two kids to the theatre for a new movie? Easily an $80.00 night out.

I was curious and saw this yesterday when I looked up "Invisible Man" on Amazon Prime.

$20...no thanks, that's more than I pay for Netflix and Shudder combined in a month for thousands of movies.

$10 and I'm cool with it...maybe even $12-$15...$20...I'll pass.
