Filmmaker David Lynch believes movies will eventually only be available to download from the internet in the future.
The Mulholland Drive director is a champion of new technology and believes the tradition of seeing new films in the cinema will soon become outdated, reports contactmusic.com.
Asked if he would ever release a film only via his website, Lynch said: "That's where everything is heading very soon. It will just be downloads."
Although Lynch doesn't have a problem with downloading movies, he still believes it is magical to see a film on the big screen and it is something that can't be recreated on smaller screens.
"It doesn't matter how people get hold of a film; as long as they can see it in the right way it will still be beautiful. If people can see a film on a big screen with the lights low and good sound, then they still have the chance to enter another world," he said.
"Some films do better on a small screen than others but if you saw 2001: A Space Odyssey on a phone it would just be the most pathetic joke," he added.
