Sean Parker first helped bring the music industry to its knees with his co-creation of Napster. Now he has his sights on the movie business.
Sean is proposing a new device and service called “Screening Room”. You pay $150 for the device, then $50 for a movie, and voila, the same night that a major motion picture opens in theaters, you can see it at home. What can theaters do to combat services like this? Do they need to see it as a combat at all? That’s the topic we discuss today.
Today we have the program director for Seattle’s Northwest Film Forum, Courtney Sheehan. Courtney is a real mover and shaker with a fresh and confident perspective on how theaters should respond to the changing.
