NY Times says big screens and 3D are coming back

Interestingly, the new 3D blockbusters are targeting adult viewers:

Hollywood’s major studios are preparing to flood festival screens and commercial theaters with an unusual, year-end wave of grown-up movie spectacles — shown in the 3-D or large-screen format that is usually reserved for action blockbusters with younger audiences.

Theater owners says now selective in what 3D movies they will show

A local movie theater owner says he is selective in what movies he will show in 3D, noting that a 3D film needs to be shown in both 2D and 3D options, taking up theater seat space. He now only shows 3D films when he thinks the use of 3D is used appropriately to add value to the story and will generate a good return on investment.

The story says 1/4th of population watched a 3D movie in 2014 while the overall percentage declined (which could be due to fewer 3D movies or theaters showing 3D). However, young viewers up through age 24 increased their 3D viewing during 2014 and was otherwise unchanged for several adult age groups.
