For me nothing will be as enjoyable as going to the movies. Its just more fun and seems like you can get into the movie more and not worry or think about anything.
The theater next to me which is only about 5 minutes away is great. They have a Digital Theater so they get movies like Chicken little and Monster House in Digital 3D.
the Popcorn is always so good and put some White Chedder seasoning on its soo good, Love the atmosphere, the trailers, Huge screen, great seats (Tempur-Pedic form-fitting). Just a better and funner experince to me then sitting home, just doesnt feel the same even with better sound etc. For me the only negative for going to the movies is the price
I love all of that too... The smell of popcorn invading my nose as I approach the theater, walking past the posters and under the banners, etc. etc. I love the atmosphere.
But you know what f***king ruins the whole experience?
Yesterday, I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean 2. Lovely theater, new recliners, large screen (50 feet or so), brand new sound system, pristine print. It was shaping up to be a great day at the movies. I sit close to the screen (about 1x the screen width), so I'm usually all alone in the row. However, yesterday, a group of preteens (probably 11-12 years old) sat by me. They were very quiet at first, but as I was thanking my lucky stars, they started to come and go in pairs. First to get popcorn, then to the bathroom, then to God knows where. I'm not a giant, but at 6'1'', I still had to do a fair amount of seat gymnastics to let the kids through every time, without having to get up myself. By the third trip, I was answering their "excuse me, please" with a grunted "just go already!". Then they started talking loudly enough for me to hear the whole conversation even over the loud fight scenes in the film. I told them to zip it, which they did, for about 10 minutes.
And don't get me started on the toddler that started wailing the second Davey Jones and his crew appeared on screen for the first time.
Or the woman surrounded by six or seven kids, all talking at once. Luckily it was on the opposite end of the room, so the shushing was handled by her neighbors. I guess I wasn't the only cranky bastard in attendance, and thank goodness for that.
Hence the reason I'm putting more and more money into my humble HT. Mohammed, meet Mountain.
