TheaterUniversal Pictures and Warner Bros. have announced plans to team up with Digital Cinema Implementation Partners to revolutionize what goes on behind the scenes at movie theaters. Instead of delivering actual film to the theaters, they have announced that they will soon stream the movies over satellite and broadband connections.

This new technology would allow theaters to play movies on more screens so you don’t go home crying next time a premier is sold out. They have yet to express the reason for the new method of delivery, but I’m thinking they’ve started to realize that delivering a hard copy to theaters around the world is a huge waste of money. That or the MPAA has another “brilliant” idea to get people to stop pirating films.
