In our hopes to make this a regular feature, FWR will be showcasing our box office contest winners and what makes them tick as movie fans.
So who better to introduce this new series than Chance Pates from North Kingstown, RI who became our first box office contest winner from the June 1-3 weekend.
Having received a $25 gift card from GameStop courtesy of FWR, we hit Chance with our "Big 3", three questions focused on his love of movies and where he sees the movie business heading.
What is your favorite movie scene and why?
So many great scenes to choice from its hard to pick one. But the chase scene in Terminator 2: Judgment Day is one of my all time favorite scenes and movies for that matter. The way Cameron directs that scene is so beautifully shot. It has great pacing, action and a tremendous score.
Where do you see the movie-going experience and/or the movie business in five years?
In the next five years I can see streaming services having an even greater impact on the movie industry than they do now. With stream and binge watching becoming the preferred way to watch movies I can see studios opt to releasing a big budget blockbuster on a streaming service instead of releasing it in theaters.
As a movie fan, is there anything else unique that you'd like to share about yourself?
I am a lifelong lover of movies. Some of my earliest memories of watching movies were with my grandfather. Now that I have children I am looking forward to introducing them to films that I love and experiencing new films for the first time with them.
