Do you go to the movies? (at a theater)
Do you still enjoy the "big scrren"?
If you do go to movies, do you get snacks there, sneek your own in, or have none?
depends on the movie... visually, some are better with a big screen, for instance Cloud Atlas, maybe Life of Pie, certainly Dr. Zivargo, and some need the further Imax 3D inhancements, like Avatar, for maximum appreciation/enjoyment... sometimes its not the screen but the experience of seeing the film, particularly the opening, with an audience, Twilight or Batman movies... others, character and plot driven, can be just as well on a small screen, Silver Lining Playbook for instance, and some, because of the intamacy, are inhanced by a small screen at homel.
Well my two young teenage sons agree with you on that. Does or has the high cost of seeing a movie at the theater play(ed) a part in your choices ?
yeah, I go to more matinees, and I've been known to carry a snickers bar in my jacket pocket
No, I have never gone to see films at a theatre, when I go, I go to a cinema. I never eat when in the cinema.
Don't be sarcastic, it is low and doesn't become you or hub pages.
lol... the little giggle that gave me earned you a follow
The last time I set foot in a movie theatre was 2007, when I took my then-four-year-old son to see "Underdog." Nowadays all my film viewing takes place exclusively on DVD.
I remember when my father took me to see my first film at the theater... It was The Muppets. Back then(at least to me) it was a BIG deal. Now my family goes to the theater once in a blue moon, during matinee price hrs, and we always sneak in snacks.
I see movies every week as a film critic and the 3D tech advances are particularly significant. As someone mentioned, Life of Pi and such 3D films are great on the IMAX big screen.
Some theaters are experimenting with 4D, including snow showers in the theater, scents, and moving seats (roller coaster, space ride, etc.). However, the biggest thing in my city is the AMC restaurant auditoriums. They are full service, with armchair style seating. They really should bring back the Double Feature for a single price, since viewers get comfortable and then have to leave too soon.
In other cities, AMC sponsors dedicated auditoriums in each movie house for people with ADD and Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families, where they can talk, act out scenes, sing, dance, or do pretty much whatever they want that is non-destructive during the screenings.
It sure is hard to eat snacks and take good notes at a movie, so I wait until afterward or eat a meal beforehand.
yours is a very interesting point of view... I love the idea of auditoriums for those with ADD and ASDs .. What has been your favorite movie?
My all-time favorites, which are shown in Summer Rerun events in town are Dr. Zhivago and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. After these two, a dozen at least are tied for Second Place!
Had ourselves a movie fest over Christmas. Watched Life of Pi, Les Miserables, Anna Karenina, The Hobbit in 2 weeks, but it's unusual for us to go much during the year. Also unusual to have so many good movies out at the same time. We used to sneak snacks in when we were younger, but now go without. Snacks available at theatres are all over-priced and it's all junk anyway.
When a movie seems as if it will be enhanced by viewing it on the big screen (or with 3D) then, yes, I do cough up the money and see it in theaters. Or if I've been waiting a long time to see the movie and just can't wait for DVD! This happens about 5 times a year. Occasionally I also go just because I do enjoy the experience, but it's so expensive.
I find the ticket cost isn't that bad for what you get out of it, but snacks are insanely priced! I try to resist popcorn and the ridiculous $5 sodas.
no, i haven't watch a movie since my son was born, 7 years ago. Ticket price had gone up too and snacks are pretty expensive. Most movies could be download and watch online. So, no point sitting in front of big screen when you could buy a big LED TV and Thunderstorm HI-FI system at home.
