Dolby Cinemas will take the visual and audio experience to a different level, Barco's Escape offers a surround screen experience, and soon movie seats will vibrate along with the action on the screen. These are the types of innovations that movie theaters are depending on to help lure people away from their home entertainment systems and back to the big screen.

"Imax has shown that people are willing to pay a premium price for a big-screen experience, and now others are following along," Eric Handler, a media analyst with MKM Partners, tells the L.A. Times.
