Luckily, we're served by the US Postal Service. The eldest here does Netflix for games that aren't found locally, since he does work at a local rental chain, which is also localized. They have good rates, about $.50 cheaper than Blockbuster across the street, with an extra day for new releases. Not to mention all those TV ads about Blockbuster DO NOT apply to any of their stores in this part of Arizona. So, if he can't find it at the store he works for, or at Blockbuster if hard pressed, he goes with Netflix, and we've never had a problem with service or delivery. And what goes for DVD's also go for games: keep as long as you need, just return when done. Which again isn't an issue, as he either finishes them, or uses them as a purchase basis, like 'try before you buy'.
Personally, I haven't been to a movie theater in many years. In fact, if memory serves, the last one was a $1.50 theater (how I miss TRUE dollar movies) back in 97, I think. Very high ticket prices, very high junk food prices, very long lines at bathroom, very uncomfortable and downright detestable seating, and very loud patrons. So why go through all that torture when I can get an order online (or Kaonee's freebie perk), watch it on a comfortable sofa, pause for an extremely uncrowed bathroom, have scotch/coffee/soda (not combined, mind ya) or anything else I feel like eating in my own home, with the only sounds the ones that come from the movie itself. Not to mention that the closest theater complex is roughly 10 miles away.
Sure some businesses might suffer, but not by much. If nothing else, they should lower the prices. If working a minimum wage job, it SHOULD NOT cost you at least 2 hours of work (more like 3 or 4 if you get eats and drinks) for a movie, and that's if you're not paying for anyone else!
