Not as much, when there is a good movie and I can find the time and someone to go with me, then sure. If I have the time and feel like shopping before or after, i'll go to the cheap theaters in one of the nearby half-empty malls, it's $1.50 on tuesdays, so why not.I just thought I'd start a thread where we could share some thoughts about the general movie-going experience. Some questions I thought we might toss around...
Do you go to see first-run movies in theaters (or is it theatres) as much you as you used to?
Not too often, but sometimes.Do you find yourself saying "I'll wait til the DVD comes out" for most films?
It depends, I think on what generation, but now a days, it sure seems that way.I've always heard that Hollywood's prime demo for movies are teenagers and young adults. Do you think that's true?
I only remember going to one drive-in in my life. Here in Cincinnati there are 2. One in a REALLY bad area and one on my way to school, but it's closing.Do you miss drive-in movies? (At least here in Southern California they are all but extinct - only a few remain).
Early on a friday or a sunday. I have learned never to go at night, too many rowdy teens.What is your favorite time to go to the movies?
Depends on who i'm with. If it's me and my friends, we never buy popcorn and drinks, but we'll sneak in some candy we bought at the store on the way to the movies. If i'm with my mom and she's willing to pay for the popcorn and such, then who am I to argue?With the high ticket prices and all, do you still buy popcorn and concessions at the theater?
If I go to the cheap theaters, then I might get a small popcorn since it's like $1.50.
I haven't been to the movies in awhile because there's either nothing worth going to see (and paying the $6.75), I don't have the time or none of my friends want to see it.
