there are just some movies that you have to watch in theaters (as in, you cant possible get the same experience in your living room), but those are very few in number, so yeah, buying/renting :)

Since I work at a movie theatre right now, I see them all the time!

As of now, I'm a little behind. At first, I would see everything (or almost everything) that came out. It's not just the movie but it's the experience. The screen, the food, the seats, all of it. I work at a really nice theatre so that helps! This is a moment I can't get at home on our screen. Now don't get me wrong, the feeling of being at home watching a movie with the comfort in your own household with your family is a special, wonderful moment. But it's just not the same! So I guess, for some, it may depend on what you want to do. Is the movie important enough to see it with family at home? Or an immediate rush to see it in theatres?

Either way, if you DO go to the theatre, try watching a showtime that'll have less capacity. Less people, better experience. That's something I've learned along the way! (Morning shows are usually less in price and guests.)

I don't see a reason to go to a theater when the movies will be placed on a DVD. Then you can pay once and watch it as many times as you want and whenever you choose. It will probably also have "bonus" scenes which are just the scenes which were deleted from its theater run and saved for the DVD release.

I can't afford the dang movie theaters anymore!  Mainly because when we do go, I take my )6) kids - by the time
we pay for the tickets, popcorn, and a soda (which we all share!) I've lost 3 months of Fusion Cash money!  LOL

I wait and rent them from the $1 rental boxes  8)

I was never a big movie buff.  But, ever since I discovered IMAX 3-D movies I always take the time to go.  I get excited to go to a big IMAX movie and become a little kid again.  I watch a lot of movies for work and pleasure!  I found the best way to rent movies is to do the Blockbuster through the mail.  I must watch at least five movies a week and I still have a full-time job, go to school and cook every night.  Movies are just something I really enjoy; if I didn't love my job so much I would direct a movie.  Great topic!!!

Me personally I like to wait until movies are out on dvd. Its not that I don't enjoy the theater Its the people in the theater that upset me sometimes. If I pay my money I like to be able to enjoy the movie without distractions from people gasping, coughing, laughing or  :crybaby2: . IDK just my opinion.

Netflix is probably the cheapest way to see movies as long as you don't mind being patient and waiting for big blockbusters to come out on dvd instead of seeing them in theater.

But the theater has it's perks. I find it more entertaining to watch horror movies in theaters. There's just something about sitting in a room with 50 other people screaming their heads off that makes the movie that much better to watch. :p

Since we got Netflix, my husband and I don't go to theaters much. Also, the last time we went, I lost my wallet.

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?  ???

that just described my date last sunday. got my sister to come watch the kids so no cost for babysitting but $20 for gas,$35 for dinner and $25 at the theater for a movie that had to be one of the biggest let-downs of my life. we never go out to the movies, prefer to wait til they come out on netflix, but we were both quite excited at the prospect of being scared by "insidious" a movie that almost everyone i know had said was the scariest movie ever. when the movie ended and the lights came on i am sure that the look on my husbands face was an exact replica of the one on mine: bored, disappointed, disinterest. the movie industry will not see a dime from me for a loooong tim

I like going out to the movies if it's something I really want to see, but I also like renting and staying home.
