    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.

    I mean, It's nice to be able to enjoy a movie in the comfort of your own home, sure. But there's nothing like going to your favorite theater and actually enjoying a movie you've been wanting to see for a long time. I like the Cenamark up the street from me. (I live right near downtown) Going out to the movies is one of my favorite weekend activities. It makes me feel classy. :cool:

    It can be pretty great watching movies at home because going to the theater needs effort. I have to schedule my day not to miss the theater. I have to drive to the theater which is costly and risky. I have to buy the theater tickets, may be for me and my family. It is also unhealthy with the sense of the existence of some diseases like COVID 19.

    Watching movies is more engaging in theaters because I engage more with the screen and have limited distractions. I regard theaters better because of the pleasant feeling it brings and improved comfort. Also, theatres present an environment for new movies, with a schedule, making it interesting to follow and not participate in many movie purchases.

    I prefer to watch movies at the theatres, especially the latest releases. Theatres provide an environment that amplifies the movie experience. Movie theatres possess features such as large screens that offer incredible graphics, high-quality pictures, and sound that better the viewing experience. Another interesting feature in movie theatres is the availability of snacks. I enjoy the buttery popcorn and candy as accompaniments which heighten the movie experience.

    The best feature about theatres is that I don't have to worry about spoilers. As such, I prefer to watch movies in theatres since it is comfortable, and I get to enjoy a lot of memorable experiences.

    I used to enjoy going to the theater when I was younger, however, I prefer to watch movies at home. Cuddling on the couch/holding hands with my partner and it makes positive memories. Sharing popcorn is way better that way.

    I don't like the bad germs hanging around and more it's more expensive. Staying home can offer benefits: restroom close by, less expensive snacks, pause the movie to do these things. I also enjoy laughing or yelling at the screen, but in public would get kicked out of there.

    I enjoy watching movies at home and going to the theater. They bring different experiences. There's nothing like being at home and watching a movie you've been yearning for while wearing comfortable clothes and eating your favorite dish, whether it was cooked or delivered from your favorite restaurants. If you have kids you don't have to worry about taking the little ones to the bathroom or waiting in line for snacks. When it comes to going to the theater I like getting dressed up in a shabby chic outfit and breaking from the daily routine of work and life. The game area is enjoyable and the snacks are great. I like how the sound from the character vibrates through the theater and the enjoyment of laughter that comes from watching the same scenes. It's relaxing in its own way.

    I like watching movies at the theater with friends and sometimes alone, the theater has a different mood but watching movies at home allows me to watch a larger number of movies old and new

    I definately prefer watching movies more in the Movie Theater, but I rarely go to the Theater, I watch a movie in the Movie Theater once or twice a year... If there is a movie I want to watch, I will usually watch it on my TV or computer.

    If I could watch one movie in the Movie Theater right now it would be The Matrix, it looks really good and I liked the first 3...

    Personally, I prefer to watch movies in the theatre. I enjoy being able to see the movie on a large screen so I can see all of the details and really enjoy the movie. But when I am with my family it's better to watch at home, because the experience watching it with family is really good - and it's cheaper too
