Netflix Inc. has considered buying a theater chain owned by Mark Cuban before jettisoning the plan, according to a Los Angeles Times report late Wednesday. Citing anonymous sources, the Times said that Netflix considered buying the Landmark Theatres in Los Angeles, but didn't pursue the deal because the price was too high. Landmark had previously hired an investment bank to look into a sale, according to the Times report.
