This is officially my FIFTH attempt to post a stupid 3-question poll, which means five rounds of typing or copy/pasting every. single. line. I am feeling distinctly murderous by this point, but I want input, so I expect to come back to lovely detailed comments. None of which say "I don't watch movies" unless you have illustrious explanations about why the movie industry has failed you. I would actually be interested in that.
"I was reading some articles about the (U.S.) box office, where a prevalent theme is always concern over how much movies are (or aren't) making compared to X years ago. And it just made me curious about why people do or don't go. For the purposes of this poll, all questions refer to actually going out to the cinema, not stuff you watch at home/online."
