WHAT ABOUT THE MOVIES?
Exploring cinema’s place in a world full of screens, streams and smartphones
Movie theaters have been serving up laughs, screams, tears and gasps for more than a century. But in an age of screens, streams and smartphones, with seemingly limitless entertainment options, does going to the movies still matter? Two journalists raised at the dawn of a never-offline culture explore this question (and lots more) in What About the Movies? Serving as both a tribute to cinema and an exploration of its future, it features original reporting – including dozens of interviews with theater owners, industry executives and moviegoers – as well as discussions on everything from movie snacks to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
