    I completely understand your point. I usually try to go in the mornings when it's cheaper at the local cinema. If it's my first time watching the movie I decide if it's worth it or not. So I usually end up watching it at home. But on that special few times I'll treat myself to a movie at the cinema.

    Going to the movies started to be a waste of time and money for me. Before the movie was over, I would have fallen asleep and missed most of it. Besides, being at home watching a movie with your family seems more convenient. Also, it is way cheaper.

    Here's the deal, when I was a child I would have said at the theater for sure. However, now that I am an adult I prefer to view new movies in my home, on my big screen TV, with my snacks, and my remote. I enjoy the ability to pause for bathroom breaks, smoke breaks, plot discussions, and snack runs from the kitchen that I spend way less money on and honestly, taste better. Besides all that, I like to play drinking games when I watch a new movie and that is way more fun and safe to do at home.

    I personally would rather watch movies at home, especially with my husband. Movie theater chairs are uncomfortable and their popcorn isn’t the best, I know surprising right? Watching movies at home allows you to be in comfy clothes and eat whatever snacks you want to. Don’t forget unlimited cuddles with your partner!

    I rarely get to go to the cinema so that would be my first choice

    I prefer both. When I don't feel like dressing up or when I want a more intimate moment with my partner, I stay at home, order pizza and enjoy. But I love going to the theater also to get out and experience the whole vibe; popcorn smelling, loud sounds and a larger screen.

    Although some experiences at the theater can be ruined by annoying audience members, watching films in the cinema is vastly superior to watching them at home. There is nothing like the experience of going to the theater; smelling the popcorn and butter, and seeing the upcoming films as you walk to your auditorium. The previews, surround sound, and even the dimming of the lights as the film begins creates an immersive experience that is hard to match.

    Try to support movie theaters as much as possible as they have taken a financial hit as a result of what has been going on in the world lately.
