George Lucas agreed that massive changes are afoot, including film exhibition morphing somewhat into a Broadway play model, whereby fewer movies are released, they stay in theaters for a year and ticket prices are much higher. His prediction prompted Spielberg to recall that his 1982 film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial stayed in theaters for a year and four months.
I'm really late to the party, but what a load of malarkey.

Nobody is going to pay $25 for a feature, not unless we're talking about the effect of inflation many decades from now. If movies got to be that expensive, people would just pirate them, completely defeating the purpose.
