This is not really natural. Think about it. For thousands of years theatre was a major event in someone's life. Family and community gathered together to laugh, or cry, or heckle, and walk away with a shared memory. But not any more.
True or false? Is it easier to laugh out loud with a room full of people, than alone where someone might think you've lost it? Would you rather be in a crowded room, with friends laughing all around you, and probably coming up with funnier lines than what's on the screen -- or alone?
This past winter I had the chance to run a video room at EveCon 12, with a ten foot screen and in full Dolby Surround Sound. There were hundreds of people in this room who had watched these same Videos many, many times, but they came. They came to see their favorite movies on a big screen again. They came to laugh, to be dazzled, to share an experience. The same as people have been doing for thousands of years.
