How about a movie theater that lets the majority of the audience seated pick which direction the movie goes in next at certain points by a left or right button?

I've had this idea for a long while but movie makers would have to make movies that would utilize this audience majority selection feature.

I'm thinking turn the movie goer experience into a mob rule democracy.

Just imagine the fights breaking out, soccer mums vs single mums. LOL

Would turn out more entertaining than the bloody movie.

Choose your own adventure as a movie.
Interesting.

I could see where some people would see the movie again and again just to see the different endings, see if the main character lives or dies, or which two will get together in the end.

Interesting. What I would like more is a button that, if ten people or more press it, that jabbering idiot talking incessantly gets a nasty jolt!

I used to love those Choose Your Own Adventure books. I haven't thought about those in years! Lol ahhh nostalgia


This is actually a good idea. I would probably be one of the goobers watching it over and over again to see the different endings


*Edit to add* Like Phoenix said ^ The fights in the theater would probably be overwelming. They might have to make this a dvd thing lol.

Interesting idea

The DVD of Final Destination 3 has something like that, you can choose heads or tails in a number of the scenes and they play out differently depending on your choice
In reality it's not as fun as it sounds, the different choices don't really effect the movie that much whichever way you go.

When you think about the logistics of having to film a movie 5-6 times over to account for all the choices people might make it sounds like it would get pretty expensive

A similar idea would be to sync the same movie with alternative scenes to 3d glasses. The movies will be 2d and you won't get to decide the course of the movie.
dvice.com...

I do like the idea and the reason I bring up the above technology is because I remember when the above technology was being prototyped and there was an independant movie made with 2 alternative endings to demo the idea and test it with an audience. I did a google search but could not find it.
Does anyone else remember this?

It would be a great to see your idea developed and tested on an audience. It's not technically challenging. (Not technically challenging if you know how to make a movie).

However it would increase the cost of movie production and the time taken to produce. Your idea would needed to be proven to be commercially viable.

Why not go with Heinleins feel-a-vision, smell-a-vision??? Imagine experiencing all the senses that the "actors" experience?
