“Did you know that only 7% of Americans prefer watching movies at a theater? Why, though? How do the comfort of home, cheaper snacks, and a pause button for pee breaks beat escaping into a well-told story that plays out on a towering silver screen with top-notch surround sound?” reads the announcement on the company’s website. “There’s magic in going to the movies, folks, and wants to help you rekindle it — or, possibly, experience it for the first time.”
