It's kind of hard to believe that some friends of mine don't go to the movies anymore. They only like to rent them several months later.
Obviously people still like the experience of going to the movies as the newest movies keep setting box office records. Going to the theater is still a fun experience for many. Seeing a movie on a huge screen with surround sound is quite fun.
But I know people who don't like going to a theater, they would rather wait until the movie comes out on DVD before they see it. It's because you can pause the movie for a bathroom or food break or you can rewind it and watch any scene again. Plus the prices of popcorn and drinks at a theater are extremely outrageous.
Dallas has a chain of theaters called Studio Movie Grill. They have large leather recliners instead of a row of seats and they have a menu! The menu includes alcohol! You have a little coaster light, like what restaurants give you to notify you when your table is ready. You press a button on it and it lights up, the wait staff comes and takes your order any time during the movie! The food is average, but I like the concept.
What do y'all like; the theater experience or DVD? Personally, I like going to a theater. If I like the movie again I'll buy it so that I can watch it again and again.
