You're going to see a move toward boutique theaters. I think the days of the 24 screen megaplex theaters are going the way of the indoor shopping malls.

Exactly. These people who only go to the theatres 1-3x a year, or haven't been to the theatre in 3+ years, should be thanking us frequent moviegoers that they're even getting big budget movies.

Warner Bros. right now

The millions of pirates will be happy to have 1080p rips of these movies right at midnight the day they're released.

I find it ironic that now Netflix has actually been keeping a theatrical exclusive window for their big movies (The Prom only looks like a week, but Mank and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom have been closer to a month) and Warner Bros doesn’t.

Default No Way Out

Warner's has spoken, and there will be no going back to the old theatrical exhibition model.

Probably wishful thinking on my part but this COULD end up working out for the best in the long-term, even beyond 2021.

If studios begin to prioritise their streaming numbers and opening weekend views etc instead of the typical 'opening weekend' Box Office numbers it should lead to them charging the theater owners less for licensing fees and such, so in turn the theater owners could sell cheaper tickets/concessions to the movie-going public making everything more affordable and sustainable in future. Not to mention, the studios and film-makers can take more creative risks.

Regardless, for 2021 at least, it's a worthwhile experiment. The people who aren't willing to go out yet can see NEW movies, those who do want to go out to the movies can still go, and the studios can still make some money. Win-Win-Win. I don't see the negatives.

Multiplexes are dead.

Overall, it will make theatrical exhibition's job harder - the need to have a quality venue and cater to customer demographics more specifically rather than generally - but the reality is that the number of screens had far outgrown the desire of the public. The only reason it was still chugging along was because it could be done cheaply. Why worry about the six screens with 5 or 6 people at a screening when the 3 biggest screens with the latest MCU film are 80% full?

Now each theater will need to have a certain angle for some type of event viewing. It's the 1950s/60s all over again.

Since I'm in NY, and our theatres aren't opening for the foreseeable future, this is pretty cool. Of course I'll miss seeing them on a huge screen with surround sound, but I'm just glad I'll get to see them at all. Though this does throw a wrench in my one-and-done HBO Max trial plan I had going for the Snyder Cut.

R.I.P. Multiplexes

I figured Wonder Woman 1984 would start a trend. I just didn't think a major studio like WB would announce they're dumping their entire 2021 slate onto streaming like this so soon. At least not before seeing what happens with WW84.

This is some pretty big news!

I still plan on watching the big movies in theaters (if possible) but it's nice to have an option.

I go to work, I go out to eat, I go grocery shopping. I did some Christmas shopping at the mall. All while being responsible (wearing a mask and keeping distance). Movie theaters have been doing an excellent job of keeping clean.

But that's also not the point. Just re-read what I said. If you haven't been to a theater in 8 years, it's not because you're scared of getting sick. For whatever reason(honestly I don't really care what your reasons are), the theaters are dead to you. Thats fine. Like I said, this move will make you happy...but don't come in saying how great it is in general. There's a lot of downside to it.

To the people saying this is welcome news because you hate going to the movies, hate being around other people, or have a nice setup at home (so do I), the only thing you're gaining is a few months until you would have been doing the same thing anyway.

For us that love the theater, we could be losing something permanently. It's not the same, and there's no way to frame the death of movie theaters as a good thing.

Win-lose.

If the movie is in HD and free online for pirates that's lost money. Let's be real, theatre moviegoers are pirates too.

Every movie will be a streaming exclusive soon and there will be no new movies to release on blu-ray.

This almost makes my stomach hurt. Feels like I'm literally seeing the end of the theatrical experience.

Agreed. This will eventually kill physical media as well.
