Why Hasn’t Virtual Reality Replaced Movies And Theatre Yet?

We, humans, have a pretty clear idea about what we want our future to look like, we just don’t know when we will reach there. One of the most prominent predictions for the future has been the extensive use of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality to replace the less interesting aspects of our life, and add spice to them.
