    What do you love about going to the Theatre?

    Is it the atmosphere, the fact that anything can happen because it's live? Do you make a night of it - dinner, drinks, show and a walk along the river? Is theatre a romantic gesture - Gents do you go along because the Ladies want you to? What makes you want to see a show? Tell me about your Theatre experiences!

    I like going to the movies with people, never alone. I particularly like going with my girlfriend (double dates as well). It's the dark setting and the exclusivity that really makes it a more enjoyable experience (if you know what I mean), as opposed to being cooped up in her house with the parents. Although some parts of the movie are usually missed, due to the extra activities (if you know what I mean), I still love going out to the movies and dinner with her.

    Also I will only see certain movies in theaters, movies that I am confident will be good otherwise I won't want to waste my money on it. Unless of course someone else pays for it, in that case I always talk and crack jokes to the person that took me just to make it a more comical experience (as opposed to sitting there in a resentful solitude).

    Seeing other people. I'm always inside so much. Also the pop-corn, the soda's, the chance to see something before others, an exciting new film, the wonders of the theater, etc.

    Ah you misunderstand, I am asking about Live Theatre, plays and musicals in the West End or on Broadway! I forgot the US/UK differences!

    Going to the theater is a unique experience. Encouraging children and young people to go to the theater opens up a new world to them and may even encourage them to take an interest in drama at school.
