A banner year at the box office driven by films including “Fast & Furious,” “Star Trek” and “Hannah Montana” is turning out to be a powerful recession vaccine for the nation’s biggest movie-theater chains. Only a few months ago, investors feared that consumers’ reluctance to spend money would keep them at home, depressing business at 5,800 local U.S. theaters. Like a twist ending to a Hollywood thriller, attendance this year has jumped 14 percent, according to tracking company Hollywood.com Box Office. Theater operators may have the weak economy and penny-pinching consumers to thank.

Business Week:
Time Warner is betting that a strategy that keeps out-of-print books from disappearing may also work for movies. Print-on-demand technology makes it feasible to produce a single copy of an otherwise out-of-print book. Time Warner’s Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is adopting a similar approach to movies not currently available on DVD, with the release of the Warner Archive Collection. The collection made its debut Mar. 23 with 150 of the thousands of decades-old titles that have not previously been available on DVD. The new collection may be the last best hope for getting copies of hard-to-find movies.
