Hurry up and wait

On Film Threat they blogged on "A World Without Movie Theaters". Part of this is the sheer increase in DVD sales, the decrease on cinema attendance in the US (with interesting observation of blogging the movie while watching it) and the availability of downloadable movies.

It's and interesting (and long) read, however it's a comment that snagged on my brain.
"there are the theatres that look more like airport terminals than actual grand empiric movie theatres that bring people into the experience"

Currently, you have to show up at the airport about 2 hours before your flight.
Security checks may mean that all electrical items (including phones) have to be removed.
A standard feature film is 1 hour 45 minutes. So you could go to the airport, check in and go to a cinema.

Of course I'm trying to figure out how to get around the annoying tanoy announcements...

The next idea would be having a courier for items which you can't bring onboard the plane. Remember you still can't bring your car keys in your hand luggage. There is a lot of lost luggage over that weekend... So a lot of unusable cars in the parking lots.
