Re: [Phys-l] A geek's observations on "Avatar"

Some thieves, perhaps, would purchase if offered for sale as souvenirs; are they?


p.s. at one time (ca. the fifties) the overhead was partially determined by the number of viewers; no longer?

The theft is a real problem. Last night they could not fill their showings of Avatar because of theft of the glasses. Their losses were not only the expense of the glasses themselves but also the loss of income from customers they had to turn away. Movie theaters work on low margins, so any loss of customers is a serious concern.
