2009 marked the first year since 2002 that US population spent more to see movies in theaters than renting DVDs and watching them at home

In 2009, US consumers spent $9.87 billion in movie ticket sales which was a 10 percent jump over the year before. DVD and Blu-ray sales combined dropped over that same time period by 13 percent, down to $8.73.

Movie rentals rose as the amount of actual rentals was up 5.5 percent over last year. Due to services like Redbox, actual spending on rentals increased by less than one percent.
