It might have gotten more expensive to indulge in this taste in recent years, but it takes a bit more than price hikes to keep hardcore film fans away from enjoying films where they should be seen: on the big screen.
Take Larry Polhill for example; while he is usually busy helping corporate clients across America crush it in their business endeavors, he occasionally finds a few hours here and there to spend in the darkness of a multiplex movie theater to take in the latest Hollywood releases.
