Which do you find more enjoyable and relaxing?

    Which do you find more enjoyable and relaxing?

    Watching a movie in the comfort of your home, or in a theatre?
    And, you know you can easily pop those buttery popcorn in your microwave oven, with
    your two liter soda bottle on stand-by.

    I prefer watching in the comfort of my own home, especially on a cold, rainy afternoon!!

      At least then you don't have to wonder around the theater parking lot for your car in the rain.

    Hi Comfort I find both equally relaxing as I love watching movies but somehow one loses the magic of being on a 'date' situation in the home - so if I want to feel pampered and looked after I choose the theatre for a treat and home for a great relaxed feet up event.  I don't do soda but a nice mug of chocolate works just as well for me.

      I always prefer the relaxed feet up on the lazy-boy with my blanket and popcorn in hand.

      Hello Comfort, thank you, I appreciate the vote of confidence.  Have a great week-end.

    I love curling up with my boyfriend while we watch movies together. It's somehow more intimate and relaxing than being out in a theater with noisy teenagers and kids kicking seats.

      'kids kicking seats'. I see you like family oriented movies. Nice!

      Haha, yeah, I sure do. I'm an animation major so I usually will venture out to see the latest animated movies.

    I've never liked going to the theater The seats have sticky things on them, the floor is dirty and I can hardly watch the movie thinking about what kind of ick is under my  seat.

    I love watching movies at home with my family, especially on a winter night with a fire in the fireplace.

      Plus, it makes for quality family time. Something we don't get enough of anymore.

      Thanks.

    Definitely I prefer to watch movies at home. I don't really like the theater anyway; too big and noisy for me. I get anxious. I'd rather watch at home with everything I need and where I can be comfortable and at peace.

    1. ComfortB profile image86
      ComfortBposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      At home and at peace. Very important indeed.

    Though I hardly ever go to the movies anymore, it feels more special to do so. Plus the popcorn at the theater is much better. But it's hard to find a movie I genuinely want to spend $10 (+ popcorn) on that wouldn't be just as good on Netflix down the road.  Really only the big special effects movies, and I don't watch a ton of those.
    Great question!

    1. ComfortB profile image86

      The popcorn at the theater is much better? Really?

    2. nArchuleta profile image91
      nArchuletaposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      IMO, by far! The only way home popcorn is better is when I take the cheese powder from Kraft mac-n-cheese and sprinkle that over it. Don't judge before trying it!

    I am always in front of the computer, either writing or else socializing in Facebook. While it is enjoyable, sitting too long can literally be a pain in the ass. What I find most enjoyable is having a therapeutic massage once a week from my regular masseuse. I earn some money from AdSense and then end up giving it to my masseuse. Money come, money go... fortunately, I don't need the AdSense money to support my family, or else I will be more dead than alive, LOL.

      ComfortBposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Hmmmm. I love all that talk about the massage. Makes me want to have one. But, what about the movie part. You prefer watching it at home or at the theater? smile

    2. WalterPoon profile image80
      WalterPoonposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      ComfortB, I hardly watch movies. There was once when I used to go to the theater with my wife to watch Malay movies (when I was trying to translate English articles to Malay), so that I'm forced to sit through the whole show. No patience to watch TV!

    Facebook friends and gardening in the warm months. Writing and sitting in front of the fireplace in the cold months.  Spending time watching Netflix doc and movies with my husband.  I am mostly a homebody and so I love doing things on the internet and on my computer.  Don't get me wrong I love to get out of the house and do things with my husband a few times a week.

    1. ComfortB profile image86
      ComfortBposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      So Lady Guinevere, that few times a week that you go out with hubby, do you do theater movies, or you prefer to watch from the comfort of your home?

    2. Lady Guinevere profile image60
      Lady Guinevereposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      We go out to dinner and grocery shopping on some of those nights.  Sometimes we will just ride around so I can take pictures of things and the area and weather for my hubs and articles.  We plan on going to some BB games. Sometmes we go to the movies

    For me it depends... I like a dinner and a movie for a date night sometimes, especially to see a new release. When at home, I like pizza with a good movie.

    i'd go for home as i think watching a nice movie in sweatpants at home is far more relaxing than a movie theater where you can't even lie down

    1. ComfortB profile image86
      ComfortBposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Yeah! Can't lie down, recline, or prop yourself up with a pillow.
