Wisdom: Vail didn’t need a movie theater

Movie theater can’t hack it in Vail

Re: “No Oscar for Vail”

It comes down to economics. Who should subsidize a movie theater and why? It’s ultimately a waste of resources that isn’t desired enough in Vail to be economically feasible. Just like a surfing store.

Re: “No Oscar for Vail”

Yes, it does all come down to economics, doesn’t it? That’s what’s so sad. Yet we forget that the greatest and most beloved artistic creations of mankind were always “subsidized” by someone, weren’t they? The Greek patricians, Medicis, the Holy Roman Empire, the czars, the Carnegies, etc. But they’re not around anymore.

Now we have a bunch of tin-hat free-market yahoos whose basic philosophy is that if it doesn’t make a ton of money for investors and shareholders, it’s not worth a damn.



That leads to a homogenization of culture, a lowest-common denominator scenario if you will. The type that makes a lot of money, but leaves us culturally stranded …

You get what you pay for.
