Title: Movie theatre
Post by: melodylogan45 on February 07, 2019, 04:55:27 am
Do you still go to the movie theatre or do you watch movies at home?

I have not been to the movies in a few years. I am thinking about going soon, if I do go, I will go on a Saturday, early morning.

I haven't been to the movie theater in years,  the prices are outrageous, I'd rather watch one at home either on Netflix, a DVD or rent one On-Demand.  8) 8)

For the past several years I have been watching all movies at home either on DVD or streaming them from Amazon Prime Video. But I think it is totally worth it in terms of fun to go to a movie theater and eat popcorn while you watch a movie on a big screen. I think I will make a point of doing that at least a couple times in 2019.

I like to go to movies sometimes. No commercials and no way you can catch up on household chores or answer your phone.  :P

If you go on certain days in many areas, you can still get a good price of admission.  8)

And I often will pay full price for Christian movies in order to support them.  :angel11:

I still go to movie theaters at least once a month as long as there are good movies out. I usually catch a movie at ten in the morning on Sundays because the cost is only five dollars. I will go out to a movie with my wife at one of the old Gatsby-era theaters once every six weeks or so and catch movies that are not in the main stream theaters-usually the Oscar contenders or movies with sub titles. I like being able to watch a movie without commercials and only the occasional cough from an audience member. It is kind of like a one hundred and thirty minute vacation for me where I  do not have to look at a computer screen or answer my phone. I watch a movies on my phone but it just  isn't the same thing looking at a really small screen with my reading glasses on.

It has been a while since I have seen a movie in a Theater.  Just have not seen any movie that catches my interest that much to pay that much to see.  It's pretty sad when the snacks you buy at the theater are more than the movie tickets themselves.

Sometimes.  We have a theater that has a low price for all movies at all times.  Everything is the same price all the time. So they do well.  They make their money off the $9 drinks and $12 popcorn.

I find that it isn't worth the money to see movies in a physical movie theater. Tickets cost too much, especially since the discounted theater in my hometown closed. If I really want to see the movie, I just wait until I can rent it for cheap from Redbox or Family Video. However, if I love a movie franchise and want to help make sure they keep making them, I will consider going to the new release in theater.

I never go unless it's at a discount theater. I haven't seen a movie in years that was actually worth $14 or whatever it is now not to mention I don't like the theater experience. Does it have to be so ear bleedingly loud? Sticky floors, kids kicking seats... no thanks I'd rather watch on TV.

We used to have a second run movie theater that was $5.00 a person but closed and turned into an Artvan....movies were 6 moths old but at least you didn't have to take out bank loan to see a movie....two people with pop/popcorn and movie would be $20.

Now it cost $15 per person just to get in!  :o

I have only went too the movies I believe twice in the last 15 years. I think it is such a rip off anymore and the movies that are coming out these days are terrible for the most part.

We rarely go see a movie at the theatre, it is  too expensive for one thing, secondly the  young people who go are so rude, they always  jumping up , running to get something, visiting and talking to loud. kicking the back of your chair or hitting you in the head when they get up with their oversize  purses . I like a lot of  my older friends  would love to go once in awhile, but they  complain about the same thing.  Oh well just look at the money we save.

No I haven't been in years or have any desire to go.  Even years ago last I went people talked and made noise through the whole thing and I have trouble getting around so I just as soon stay home where I am comfortable don't have to put up with someone's rudeness and LOL the snacks are certainly cheaper.  So no movie theatre for me.

:heart:   :in-love:   :kiss:   :heart: I do attend a movie theater from time to time. Must be a good movie playing that I would want to see, before I go to watch. Some of them don't look that good for me to pay that kind of money to watch there, I will wait to watch it later.  :heart:   :in-love:   :kiss:   :heart:

I didn't go much for many years but, have recently, started a subscription with AMC.  You get 3 movies a week, any movie, including 3D, IMAX, any time, for $20 a mo.  It's a good deal.  I don't usually get my 3 movies a week in but, I usually get 2 a week in so I still think it's a good deal.

I'm not big on going to the theater but my partner likes to go and I will admit we've seen some great films in the theater recently. My favorites were A Star Is Born and Vice. Both were up for best picture, neither won, but I also didn't see the film that won. I'll have to check it out.

Our movie theater has new releases for $5.  I still sometimes would rather just wait a bit and purchase it at Walmart.  I got the House with a Clock in the Walls for $20 yesterday.  I got BlueRay, DVD, and Digital all for $20.  And it is mine forever.

I go to a movie theater roughly once a year when I go to Boston to visit my daughter. We both love to buy popcorn and watch the film on a large screen. But the whole rest of the time I take movies out of my local library and watch them on a DVD at home. The really good movies don't show up as available at the library until the Oscars are over with usually.

Yes, still go to the movies not on a regular bases though; the last time I was there about a month ago I did see some trailers for upcoming movies I would like to see so guess over the next few months will be their a little more often.
Title: Re: Movie theatre
Post by: JaniceSW on March 04, 2019, 02:15:14 pm
I go to the theatre occasionally as a treat.  Usually it is because there is a special movie that I just want to see on the big screen because of the action and special effects.  There is also a theatre in my town that has $4 matinees on certain days.  I never get the food or drinks.  They soak you on that stuff!

Only when I really want to see a movie. I saw Captain Marvel last month and I'm definitely going to the theatres next month when Rocketman comes out.

Sometimes I think about going to a move theatre but haven't been in many years.  Seems like there is so much evil in the world I am getting so I hate to even leave my house.  Besides the last two times I went people talked so loud and didn't even pay attention to the movie it was impossible to enjoy and my husband and I ended up getting up and leaving.

My wife loves the movies, so we go a couple of times a month, but I get free admission and popcorn from my Internet websites. I know we could get Blueray disks or rentals, but there are some movies that are not the same without the Big Screen and THX sound.
