Thank You FT.com
I would like a paid position corresponding for media outlets of my choosing.
Movie theaters are examples of 'push' media. They show film and you sign up for it. It is broadcast at a certain time. Smaller rooms showing the movie on a digital projection monitor or screen, available for small parties or single-viewing rental would turn the movies into a 'pull' market, where people arrive and request movie viewings.
A digital library could be connected to a central database, and people could request viewing any movie since the dawn of movies from the databse, ad charged a ticket fee. The rush of snackbuying would be spread out, classic film theaters could prosper without substantial license fees, the place could be turned into a movie-restaurant instead of a theater. Parties of any size could have relative privacy, and huge theater audiences could still be provided for very popular choices on a push basis. But if you come late, watch it on the smaller booth. And order some fries.
It'll be fantastic.
