Wrong.

They're already spending the money, and now it becomes a matter of competition among exhibitors for how many 3D screens they'll have available for a big release - and when three out of four, or four out of four, of 2012's blockbuster movies are distributed in Real 3D then the pressure is just intensified.

2D movies can be shown digitally as well - just as silent movies could presumably still be shown in multiplexes today.

Except that they're not.
