Gone are the days of single cinemas in cities and towns in exchange for better cinemas inside the malls. This has been the new business models for companies that have flourished despite the fact that the country is facing a serious economic crisis and a tremendous recession.
But despite it all, malls just never run out of people going there. Just goes to show that consumerism is alive and well despite all the turmoil.
So what would be the next logical step in the evolution of malls?
Since 3d walkthroughs and maps are important to mallgoers, why not go ahead and get really interactive and high end stuff in order to wow any visitors of a mall. State of the art walkthroughs are definitely the added attractions in malls that already have a thousand and one cool things inside it.
Another obvious evolution for malls and cinemas inside the malls is the mass production or the localizing of IMAX theatres. IMAX is currently a big source of income for most cinemas around the US and capitalizing on that, providing more IMAX cinemas at rock bottom prices can definitely boost ticket sales and even the number of mall visitors any and each day of the week.
