Hollywood seems worried and I think they should be. Movie attendance is down 11% this year compared with 2004, and there are no signs of a trend reversal. First run movies have to compete with all of the great home theater gear and special edition DVDs we just keep buying. Combine that with high ticket prices and you've got a problem in "Tinseltown."

As a result, I haven't seen a movie in the theater since "E.T." Hey, what was the name of the cute little girl in the movie, Drew something-or-other? I wonder what she's up to now....anyway, let us know if your HDTV gear is a factor in your movie theater attendance with the poll below.
