A common fear of mine, I debate on going to the theater to see a movie with my Hubby. Good date yada yada but the movie is a big let down  :( so we end up paying 40 some dollars to sit in the dark while I could have waited and rented it for 5 bucks and had a nice night in cuddling on the couch.

What about you guys?  ???

I would much rather wait & buy the movie to enjoy over and over.  Our theater is cheap now since there is a new bigger fancier one in the arera now but I would still much rather sit at home and watch in the comfort of my couch!
Have a wonderful day!

I don't think there is anything to fear. I enjoy going to the movies as soon as the movies come out- I just dont get to seee them all. Its how I unwind

It depends on the movie as to if i see it in theaters or not. I dont mind going to the theater but it is so expensive so i usually wait till it comes out on dvd or whatever.

When I lived down the street from a movie theatre, I used to go twice a week. It is more expensive now, of course... so I usually rent at a Blockbuster kiosk now.

Once in a while seeing a film in the theaters is okay, but most of the time I wait until it comes out on dvd because it's more comfortable watching at home and affordable.

I'd rather rent, for the same reasons you said.  It's too expensive these days, and too many movies are a let down.

I like going to the movie theaters to see movies (mainly because of the big screen) but I found it a better investment to buy yourself a movie projector and a nice surround sound system. If the family goes to see a movie at $7 a ticket, that is more than the dvd will be when it comes out in stores. Just wait, and you will have it to watch whenever you want and with your projector can watch it on the big screen! And good thing about buying the dvd is if you don't care for the movie, you can sell it and make some of the money back :)

There hasn't been any movie in the last decade that I have been anxious to see in a theater.  I haven't been to the movies in a few years because they are too expensive.  I'd rather wait and watch it online for free or rent it at Redbox.

As long as I see the movie...it really wouldn't matter.

Depending on the hype of the movie and the director and the actors and a whole other aspects then ill go see it in theaters but if it doesnt have the right aspects then i probly wont go and see it.

I don't even rent it.  I wait until it comes out on HBO or Showtime and then watch it.
