With todays economy, we are now waiting for the movie to be shown on TV.  If I can wait till at least they come out on DVD's, then I can wait another month before they come out on the TV.

I like to see some of the action movies at the theater. The huge screen and sound are better and a decent crowd can make it more fun. Also some of the 3D ones have been cool. I do agree though that you really have to be picky or you end up wondering why you didn't just wait for the DVD.

I don't go to the movies and haven't been in somethin like 10 years. I just don't feel the need to pay such an insane price to go see a movie when I can just wait to get it and watch at home or a friends' house where it's more comfortable, quiet, and the snacks don't cost nearly as much. Lol Plus, I can pause it if I need a bathroom break.  :thumbsup:

I would much rather wait for it to come out on DVD and save the money. Bowling or an outing with the kids to a museum or attraction would be a lot more worth the money for our family.

I don't go to the movie theater anymore for several reasons: 1. They are too expensive, 2. The floors are usually sticky and creepy feeling and 3. I always wait until they come out on DVD.

You make an excellent point!  :thumbsup: Spending that kind of money for a family to do something together would be much better spent on something where you all interact and enjoy each other's company in a more productive/bonding experience. Plus it gets everyone up and moving.  :)

If the movie looks really good, and I don't want to wait for it to be released on DVD, then I will fork out the 10+ dollars to see it in the theater. The only thing is that when I see a movie in the theather, I have this crazy OCD need to get like a million snacks. I try to smuggle them in from other, less expensive stores, but there's only so much that my purse can hold! They always get you with that movie-theater style popcorn though.....there's nothing like it anywhere else. If these prices keep going up the way they are though, I don't care how good the movie looks, I will wait to order it through my cable provider for $4.95!

I usually wait till the dvd comes out (I'm a netflix subscriber). Because the movie price has gone up a lot even ever since I moved here to the States (it's been 7 years) and most of the movies are not worth $10 or whatever they charge you now. Especially recently the movie companies don't seem like they can make any more original movies. Pretty much comic books and sequel.

 I take it one step further than that! I don't go see a movie in theaters and I don't buy or rent on dvd! I just wait until it cames on cable

It depends on the movie.

Something really epic, with great special effects - that I definitely want to see in the theater. Movies have gotten so expensive it's ridiculous, but for something really spectacular I don't mind paying the extra money. Thankfully, those are few and far between.

All the rest, I wait for DVD

There are only a couple movies a year that I would be tempted to go to the theater. If I go at all it's usually once a year. I much prefer watching at home with friends and family! :wave:

If there's a movie we want to see in theater, we go see it.  However, we go to the first viewing the day we see it; the movie theater we go to has discounted prices during that time (I don't remember how much right now).  Otherwise, we wait till it comes out on Netflix.

Economically I would wait to the DVD.  Even better if you have on Demand, they have the same rates as renting in blockbuster so you don't have to leave home.  Plus not get ripped off at the concessions stands.
