Will premium video-on-demand kill movie theaters?

Hosted by

Hollywood studio executives are planning to release their movies as “premium” video-on-demand soon after they hit theaters for $30-$50 per rental. Theater owners are worried people will buy those rentals, and not go out to see movies. Some filmmakers are also against it. It was a big issue at CinemaCon this week.
