The Cuban Revolution

Wired (article)

More on Mark Cuban; this time how he is making a better movie theater.

Moviegoers, for their part, would be treated to a future that promises no more out-of-focus projection, out-of-order reels, or scratchy footage on heavily played film. Even more exciting to Cuban is the broader range of content that digital systems make possible: Beyond movies, theaters could offer live, hi-res broadcasts of sports events, Broadway plays, fashion shows, and multiplayer electronic games.

Ok, i changed my mind: If i could have dinner with one person it would be Mark Cuban. He knows what’s going on in the real world and can see how to make money out of it.

The problem is that it is unfeasibly expensive, that is why digi-theatres have not taken off. You'd end up paying more than you could buy the dvd for.

If it is not feasible I'm sure Cuban would not be doing it. It seems like whatever he does it works out in the end, i hope it is the same for the theaters as well.
