Turn left where the theater used to be

Ron ambles by the now former Loews Copley Place Cinemas:

[W]orkers were already busy taking the place apart. One of them was putting black paint over the box office windows and the theatre doors. Another was carting speakers out through a service door. I tried to wander around looking, but eventually got shooed out.

I bet that within another week, shoppers in the mall won't even see that a cinema used to be here.

How many years until the last of the movie theaters close?

Is public film exhibition doomed because of high quality digital video and sound and on-demand broadband movie ordering?

Will there be vestiges of public exhibition in IMAX-or-better quality special theaters?

Or will public film exhibition change into a different type of event like the dinner movie theater in Framingham or the pub theater in Stoughton?
