That's my point. Some day you will see movie theaters with active screens.
Once a year they will have to be replaced. I expect they will come on a big
roll, where the installers roll up the old one, roll down the new one,
tack it in a few places and connect the interface.

Back when I thought I was going to build a handheld gaming device,
we priced 1/4 VGA LCDs. In quantities over 1 million, they were about
$40 for a STN (passive display). By the begining of this year, TFT displays
were that low, and the estimates for 800x600 OLEDs were about $5 in
that quantity.
