The beauty of cinema to show films on wide screen with good sound quality has fancied people for centuries. Some critics argue that enthusiasm of people going by the silver screen is fading with time and might ultimately arrive at an end someday. I agree with the critics and feel that with advancements in technology, trend of watching films in cinema may pass on soon.
Recent headways in Technology has provided enormous choices to humans to invest time in like high technology smart phone , LED HD display TV, Home theatre , Video games with excellent graphics and so on. Such humongous possibilities for entertainment have left little time with people to spend on watching movies at cinema. Not just this, easily available and inexpensive DVD's and movie on internet facilitates watching a movie anywhere, anytime and any number of times. With more and more such options heading up, the urge to watch a motion picture at the theatre has gone down further.
Nevertheless, with advancements in technology, the cinema has evolved so much that almost all the action movies and animated films are shown with high class 3D effects and clear sound quality to maintain the craze of people in watching movie at theatres. Further, to draw more and more audiences, cinemas are giving discount offers on movie nowadays. But still crowed visiting cinema is less as compared to earlier times.
To sum up, with catching trends in technology, people are favoring electronic gadgets and DVD's more over cinema movies. Despite so many endeavors by the cinema owners to attract audiences, the numbers of people watching movies at cinema are decreasing with time and may fade out soon.

In today’s modern world, watching movie has become one of the leisure activities for most people nowadays. However, there are a handful of people who assert that people will soon spend less time watching movie in the cinema which I disagree with.
There are several factors why I do not think cinema will soon become an abundant place to visit in the near future. To begin, people in the twenty-first century prefer to go to cinema due to the reason that they want to spend their precious time with their family or friends so as to strengthen their relationships. It is one of the way that people these days, especially the teenagers use to socialise with others. By watching a movie with friends in a cinema, they can exchange their thoughts and give comments about the movie that they watched with their friends which indirectly opening up an avenue for them to understand their peers better. As a consequence, it is not uncommon to see most of the youngsters actually plan to go to cinema during their gatherings nowadays.
Furthermore, although there are numerous ways to download movies from internet following the development of technology, most people still choose to go to cinema because the sound equipment in cinema are more advanced. They like to immerse themselves in the movie as they think the story plot will be more thrilling and it can only be experienced in the cinema which is surrounded by excellent sound effects. According to the result of a recent research conducted in Columbia, most people find watching movie at home is rather boring and is not as interesting as in cinema. Thus, I believe there will not be less people to visit to cinema in the near future.
In conclusion, I am not convinced by the argument that people will ultimately lose interest in going to the cinema as there are evidences which show that there is an increasing trend in the number of visitor to the cinema. I believe that cinema will not be faded out, in return, it will continue to flourish in the decades to come.

Many believe that multiplex & cinema is on dying spree & eventually cinema will die his own death, due to shift in Technology, which has literally bring cinema at Home. I am sort of in opinion that, actual movie lovers will never forget big screen. May, the number will be on downward trend & in business context, it will not be as profitable as in last few decades.
Still, the charm of cinema is never going to die. As an individual, I always love to watch movies on silver screen, the reason being is, fill joy of a movie can only be possible with theatre, no one is there to disturb & you can uninterruptedly enjoy or feel the story line. One can always rate a movie better, if seen on Big Screen.
However, the other aspect is also somewhat true, that cinema is on decline. Innovation & up scaling in Technology are the prime reasons, which make people think that, era of Silver Screen is bound to die. Technology has bring Big Screen at home with better sound systems, big LED screens & most important is the ease of watching at the comfort of home.
On a high note for big screen, the best part is, no one can watch latest flicks at home & this will make sure that people keep coming to big screen for watching the latest work of their favourite stars.
Summing up, favour for big screen may decline, in reality, it is never going to die in next decade or so.
