Going to the theatre used to be an event. People would round up their friends or schedule a date night with their love for a night at the theatre. Now movies go to DVD only a month or two after the theatre release and the cost of going to the theatre is constantly rising. Is it still worth the cost and bother to go to the theatres to see a new release, or would you rather wait until it becomes available on DVD or on Demand?
Pretty much every weekend! I love going to the movies!
My aunt is the same way, I'm pretty she sees the majority of movies in theatres.
We sneak off by ourselves and hand over the kids in the foyer before the next one goes in...so by the end of the day, both of us have had some time out and seen a movie that we talk about together after...does mean going to the video shop is a problem though...
That's an awesome way to be able to get some 'alone time' and also feel like you're getting a date night. Very cool!
First movie I can remember seeing was 'Gigi' at the local picture theatre with my parents'.
We also used to go to the 'Drive-In', every Friday night.
As a teenager, went to the 'flicks' of a Saturday arvo, constantly. There were good movies made during the '60's.
Now, I'd be lucky if I saw ONE movie a year! Last one I saw was 'The King's Speech'! Loved it!
Might go & see 'the Woman in Gold' 'cos Dme Helen Mirren's in it, & I enjoy her acting.
Our local art gallery shows the same movie 3 times a week, on different days, at different times. A person can pay $30 a YEAR, to see 1 film a week, except during the school holidays. They’re wonderful award winning films, mostly foreign
films. because we’re 'Friends' of the gallery, we get to see the films, for $20 a year! before this offer came along, we’d NEVER go to the pictures! We’d only see a t.v. movie. 1 year, back in about 1966, my now husband & I used to go the
drive-in once a week. I still have the tickets from those drive-in movies in a exercise book size diary, for that year! All the paperclips have rusted now!
Sorry, that should have read, 'We get to see the films for $35 a year, as gallery members, or $40 year for non members.' We never go to the movies anywhere else, & never bother hiring DVD's.
