Silver Screen Technology: Disney Wants You To Bring IPads To The Movies

Think of how much easier it'd be to follow Game of Thrones if you had maps and family trees at your fingertips. 

But with so much happening on the little screen in their hands, it might be harder for children to follow the real action that their parents have shelled out $15 for them to watch. And this is far from an isolated trend – Nintendo (OTC:NTDOY) has reportedly begun investigating  making an interactive movie experience for its landmark franchise, Zelda

Which of course begs the question, will this become the norm when we go to the movies? Even I can remember that wistful time before commercials ran ahead of the previews. As users crave a more interactive experience – one that puts them into the action as opposed to remaining strictly spectators – what will happen to the traditional movie theaters, and the films they show? Are they destined to go the way of the drive-in?

We at Kapitall Wire will be following this trend closely, although for the time being it's still probably best to continue silencing your devices before the opening credits.

And consider the list below of stocks at the forefront of this crossover between film and personal technology.
