Ewan McGregor worried about future of cinema
London: Scottish actor Ewan McGregor fears cinemas are beginning to price themselves out of the movie business as more and more people choose to stay at home and watch films than spend a fortune on a night out.
McGregor, 40, said he is amazed by the amount of people he meets who no longer visit the cinema because the films they want to see are available on their state-of-the-art TVs weeks later, a leading daily has reported.
"More and more often I find myself in conversation with people who are no longer going to the cinema; so many more movies are available in our homes now. The other problem is cinemas are making money off of selling popcorn and candy and sweets so you have to sit listening to people chew. Also, it gets too expensive by the time you buy the kids popcorn and you park; it`s close to a hundred bucks (dollars) to take your family to the cinema," he said.
