LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Movie theater operators hope to be screening live 3D sports events by 2007 in a bid to lure sports fans away from their home theater systems and bolster sagging mid-week ticket sales.
That would be "3D" as in "holy crap I'd like to see this." And again, if movie theaters go high-definition (with or without 3D), they'll start drawing people again. When you have high-definition at home, theater screens are just ass, and the number of HD sets being sold in the U.S. is absolutely exploding.
