Conditions of Use
The issues of the economy are affecting a lot of things, one of those things are the movies. Because of things going on like high gas prices, producers who are asking their normal investers for money to invest in the movies are not giving out like they use to. They are now keeping more and giving less because everything is so expensive.
Another issue is something I realized while watching a movie called "The Producers" a while back, is that you can actually make more money if you make a film good enough to get in theaters but bad enough to the point where nobody wants to see it is that they make more money from that then a really good movie. So now all the producers could at anytime start making bad movies. "That's the part that worries me. If a studio has to decide between making a movie that's really good but might not be hugely profitable, and making a movie that's complete crap but will gross $200 domestic, I know which one they're going to choose," says Eric D. Snider. So now we lose the oppurtunity to go to the movies because they all want more money!
The last debate I have is if the economy will have an affect on the attendance of movies. In the 1930's when the Great Depression was going on, movie attendance went up tremendously. This was most likely because of the fact that movie tickets cost less then tickets to an actual play. This was very good news for the people who were out of a job back then and needed a little entertainment that didn't cost a whole lot.
