Everything in the past three shots looks so peaceful.

Well, it's pretty empty out there and I guess no people might make for a peaceful situation.

But if it is too empty, there would also be no DIs. Is there a "right" population density for this?

Did you visit the DI recently profiled in the NYTimes? They are digitalizing, and cited a cost in the $Ms.

Did you visit the DI recently profiled in the NY Times? They were doing well and converting to digital, citing a cost in the few millions of $.

Scott, much too empty for any DIs. I was moving between Carlsbad, NM, and Globe, AZ, with no theaters in between. There is one way up in Las Vegas, NM, but I couldn't work it into a reasonable itinerary.

I did shoot at the Mission Tiki on the trip. The DeAnza group has six theaters, with two to six screens each. Since each projector costs $75-95K, you get up into the millions pretty fast. Luckily, their theaters are busy enough and they have the resources to make the transition.
