The End of an Era Arrives as Digital Technology Displaces 35mm Film in Cinema Projection in 2012
In the ten years between 2005 and 2015, digital screens will have gone from 0% of the worldwide market to 80%+.
"In the United States, there will be no more mainstream 35mm usage from the end of 2013. For Western Europe, this event may happen at the end of 2014, given the large number of countries and the possibility of public support. The rest of the world will then be under some pressure to follow suit. Because of this, 35mm will see its last mainstream usage by the end of 2015."
