Dame Helen Mirren speaks against the rise of streaming services like Netflix, Amazon

Veteran actor Helen Mirren believes streaming services, such as Netflix, Amazon and Hulu, are "devastating" for film directors and audiences.

The Queen actor said watching a film in a cinema hall is considered a "communal" experience and feels the expansion of the digital platform poses danger to the theatres.

"It's devastating for people like my husband, film directors because they want their movies to be watched in a cinema with a group of people," Mirren told Total Film magazine.

"An audience, a movie, and you're all in it together. You're frightened, you laugh, you cry all together. So it's a communal thing. And that's beginning to disappear," she added.

The 72-year-old actor is married to Taylor Hackford, best known for 2004 biopic Ray.
