NPR: “So the streaming service plans to release the film in theaters and online at the same time, an emerging strategy in the industry. But some major theater chains are not playing along: AMC, Regal, Cinemark and Carmike have refused to screen it.”
It looks like Netflix is making a full out assault on a couple fronts; Cable and Movie Theatres.
The theatres better get their act together or they’ll be declaring bankruptcy. Forward thinking movie theatres, like Alamo Drafthouse, won’t be afraid to welcome ideas like this.
