Sometimes gone without notice, multimedia such as TV, movies, CDs, DVDs, sports events, and streaming video have become competition for Nederlander. The comfort of home is a big competitor, especially since technology has made it possible to watch “Live TV”, Netflix, and having theatre-quality home entertainment systems, sport games where you can rewind for a replay, and even music at home without getting off of the couch. The National Endowment for the Arts’ latest Survey of Public Participation in the Arts did a study and theatre attendance has dropped nearly 6% and is still dropping (Teachout). Nederlander has to constantly find a way to advertise well enough to convince people how going to a movie theatre, concert, etc. is better than sitting at home on the couch.

Redbox is in a highly competitive environment that is evolving quickly. Redbox differs in this competitive market because it offers consumers convenient, quick, and hassle free access to affordable movies. Compared to Netflix and Blockbuster, Redbox offers more physical locations as well as the lowest price available to rent a DVD or Blu-ray in the very competitive marketplace. Redbox, Netflix, and Blockbuster represent the major market share holders but the movie industry has a bigger connection with direct competitors as well as new entrants and suppliers and other substitutes. New entrants would consist of GameFly and Blockbuster Express.
In order to be healthier, we can get rid things like Rockstar, and buy less soda. We can also get rid of some our microwavable foods and junk foods. Even with all the junk food and microwavable foods that we have, our refrigerator is full of vegetables and food that is organic. Since my mom doesn’t work, and my dad does, we don’t really have to worry about not expecting dinner to be ready at night since she’s not really all that busy. We get a hot meal every night that my mom cooks for us, and it’s not just microwave this and that, it’s something that is prepared over the stove.
Many seniors own their home so mortgage or rent is not a worry to them. For seniors living in apartments the cost of living may still be cheaper. Most one bedroom apartments range from $600 and 800 a month. Other amenities such as hydro, heat, and electricity are usually included in rent (when living in an apartment.) A senior aging in place while living in an apartment only has to worry about the extras such as cable, internet, and phone.
A ticket for a senior citizen is only 6 dollars, which is fairly cheaper than what AMC 20 chargers. Phoenix Theatres is accommodating to the older customers and welcomes their business. In addition, Phoenix Theatres gives out many ticket and concession coupons. There are ticket coupons that are for a free movie and also if for some reason there is an issue with the movie then the theatre gives out emergency passes. Emergency passes are good for any movie at any time and they never expire.

I have Oak Hollow Mall memorized, and have been to almost every restaurant around the High Point-Greensboro-Winston area. It's not that teenagers are becoming lazy, we're getting tired of going to the movies and bowling every weekend like we've been doing since 2nd grade. I just wish there was somewhere that I could meet other teenagers without having to worry about my friends getting drunk or pregnant but also not feel like I'm in elementary school again. People that don't support a facility either don't know what's really going on in high schools or just don't care and don't want to "waste
In today’s society, people have become accustom to instant gratification. Watching a movie in one’s own home that they ordered from the “On Demand” feature is much easier than going out to the movies. There’s no need for a speak-easy since prohibition has been repealed. The word radio is almost foreign. The only time a majority of people use it is if their iPod or music enabled cell phone has died.
Theater: Shakespearean vs. Today In the theater of Shakespeare’s era, you wouldn’t have as many opportunities to perform as you would in today’s theater. You can perform whenever you want, and have both male and female actors in a play. There are also different schools and workshops specifically designed for the theater arts. In Shakespeare’s time only men could act, and they couldn’t perform in bad weather or at night, due to the lack of a roof and electricity. There were not as many opportunities for an actor then there are today.
