    No wonder we don't go out more often!!!

    WTH?
    Haven't been to a movie theater since 2005. In 3 months you can rent the same movie for $3 and watch in the comfort of your own home. Don't have to deal with the douche nozzles in the theater or the overpriced extras

    Or get it from the library for free.

    Last time I went to the movies was Superman the Movie. $6 a ticket and a total of $20 for my wife and I.

    True. Library is always an option as well. Truth be told I haven't even rented a movie in several years. I usually wait for it to come on TV anymore. I might make an exception here soon and go rent John wick 3

    We go to the theatre about once a year. I don't know why.

    Redbox is fine with me.

    Everything about this movie, including the fact that I can't recall the name of it, confirms the fact that going to the movies is a waste of money.

    I remember, as a kid, going to the LANS THEATER on Ridge Road in Lansing, IL in the 1960's. It had air conditioning and we'd go to matinee movies in the summer months because it had air conditioning at a time when most homes did not have anything like the comfort of central AC. But now movie theaters are less comfortable than most homes, and offer little more than speedy delivery of a movie. My lay-z-boy is more comfortable. My surround sound can be adjusted to a volume level that doesn't make my ears bleed, and if i want popcorn my microwave can deliver a hot bag of it in about 2.5 minutes.

    About a year from now I'll forget this lesson, repeat it, and then b!t(h about over-paying to go see a movie that is not memorable.

    Ad Astra or something like that? I was looking up what was playing earlier, until this chick flaked, and that was one of the things playing. I wondered what it was but wasn't interested enough to click.

    The ex and I used to go to the half price matinees quite often. Ticket price was $6 I think. I would get a cup of water and smuggle snacks in my purse. He was a popcorn and soda guy.

    There are some movies I just can't wait to see and/or there's something special about seeing them on the big screen. Particularly my big blockbuster, visually and aurally impressive nerd fests like Marvel and Star Wars movies.

    Agreed. Even with a 60" TV at home and surround sound, I cannot duplicate the GIANT WALLSIZE screen in a theatre nor can I come closes to the audio. There are a very small % of movies that deserve to be seen in a theatre.

    Most movies are unmemorable like the movie I watched last night and paid way too much money to see.

    We say it on the pseudo-IMAX screen at AMC and I think the tickets were $15 each.

    95% of the movies are better off seen on a TV screen, streamed over the internet or rented at the Redbox.

    I would have preferred to see ENDGAME on the big screen.

    I paid to see the anniversary showing of PRINCESS BRIDE on the big screen, that was actually a good choice. But it would not have been worth seeing it on an IMAX screen.
