Technology is making us all homebodies.

For example, homes equipped with big-screen TVs and surround sound are stiff competition to movie theaters. Add a bag of white cheddar popcorn and, for some, it’s as good an experience.

Americans go out to the movies on average 3.6 times a year, according to the National Association of Movie Theatres, compared with 4.3 times in 2009. Tickets sold for 2017 totalled 1.24 billion, down 6 percent from 2016 and the lowest since 1995.
