Big Brother is Watching You Watch

This massive display of security screens is located in the entryway to the multiplex cinema I mentioned a couple of days ago. I believe there are 56 different areas being monitored here! Nobody is ever sitting at the control panel. The only people who seem to look at these screens are moviegoers either before or after their film. I wonder if it's a matter of one screen being as good as another in the end...are we so video-dependent that we'll even watch these screens showing nothing much at all?

I guess these monitors are here *just in case* record anything anomalous that might happen...don't have these at the old theater in town!

I can see benefit of those cameras in security area and as right-hand help for CSI Investigators around the world...but sometimes I am afraid of incoming in our private lives

That is more screens than in the actual cinema!

As a foot note to your post, the UK has 20% of the worlds security cameras! We are always being watched here!!
