Great topic Anshu...

I love to watch movies in theatres... but only select ones...
The theatre experience has been so nice for me in different stages of my life

As a kid we were in this small town and my dad used to take us to movies every week...the manager of the hall used to keep 4 seats blocked for us every week...the excitement of walking into the dark theatre with the gate keeper showing you your seats by torchlight...the typical smell of cigarette smoke, and moongphali...the hard sometimes broken chairs..., the life bouy ad "tandurusti ki raksha karta hai..." and the newsreel before the film started ....in the interval we always got a treat of "Bun samosa"...the taste of that sweet and sour chutney smeared on the spicy samosa crushed between 2 thin buns....it still makes my mouth water..

And finally the surge of patriotism at the end when they played the national anthem
Anyone who has ever stayed in a small town can relate to this I think

when I was in Delhi...sometimes hubby and me would drive to Chanakya without any prior planning and then hunt for guys selling tickets in black... it was great fun and some fear to...when money quietly exchanged hands and we finally managed to get the coveted tickets

And we were there when the first multiplex- PVR opened...and suddenly tickets became slightly easier to buy...walking on the plush carpets and having the cushioned seats with cup holders was quite something!

And here in Abu Dhabi...u can just walk in 5 minutes before the first day first show and get the best tickets...such a luxury...and popcorns and cokes have to be bought for the kids of course...and I can see the same excitement in their eyes that I used to experience in the dark run down theatre of the small town years ago!

Exactly my feelings..About the National Anthem Confused- other than the '1942 a love story', I don't remember the National Anthem being played in the end of any other movie....

I too love the Samosas, cake and the other junk food that we can get there..In fact I don't enjoy Popcorn at all and always get reminded of nice hot samosas instead Ouch ...But I love the feeling of being able to sit and forget everything else and get immersed into some other make believe world... Embarrassed ...Movies like Dhoom2,Parineeta,Black,Lakshya have to be watched on big screen to experience the magic..

However being able to watch the movies on DVD has its own advantages..There are some movies(in recent times, movies like 'life mein kabhi kabhi','tararampum' and now I am waiting for the 'Jhoom barabar Jhoom' DVD too) that I like to check out with my fingure constantly on the FW button, but check them out I mustLOL...In such cases it makes more sense for me to spend not more than a $1 on these...Imagine getting stuck in a theater with these movies.. Ouch LOL

I was nt a movie hall freak until I stepped out of my parents house.... but after watching few movies in halls I dont feel like watching movie on TV LOL ..... I dont get satisfaction out of watching movie on TV... the latest i watched on theatre was this sunday "Pirates of the Caribean 3 Tongue

But Most of the movies in movie halls I have watched out of self earned money.... I never felt like asking for money to watcha movie in my childhood from my parents.... I even never liked to ask money for picnic Ouch .... So I went to Kulu Manali and Shimla the first year of my job LOL But I did feel like asking to my company for travelling expense and my travelling was sponsorred by company Wink LOL

I think there are movies to watch in the hall, there are some movies to watch at home and then there are some movies to watch home again after you've watched them atleast a few times in the hall n no more cus they aren't showing anymore! Tongue

Lord of the rings, Star Wars, Pirates n similar filmography ..you really cant watch them at home. And I've watched Hera Pheri atleast a 100 times at home after watching it once in the cine hall. Ofcourse with the rewind/fwd/pause buttons at play ..cus I had literally memorized the dialogs Tongue

Think it depends on the movie.

Nice topic Anshu!Smile

I think that watching movies in a theatre is a total different experience than watching it at home it's like at the theatres you get popcorn, coke and it's all dark with those sound effects and the big screen! But these days you can do the same at home get a home theatre system, buy a large screen tv and of course get popcorn and coke at home. As my dad always says it's free!Big smileLOL Plus, if it's not too great of a movie that you're watching and say you have it on DVD, you can always forward it.TongueWink And if you missed something or want to see it again you can always rewind and if you..maybe i should stop.LOL

Anyways, i guess going out to watch the movie in theatres is a different experience and you also get to have some good times with family and friends eating the popcorn and having a good laugh, but you can always watch movies at home too. So I'll just say that they're 2 different experiences.Smile

i perfer watching the movie at home for the reasons others stated. Even tho
some movies are better on the big sccreen, most movies can recreate the
same magic in the comforts of our homes. especially with the new sound
systems/larger screened tvs. unless im hanging with friends and we all
decide to go watch a movie, i hardly ever go to the movies. but i watch
everything on tv (or online Wink). its easier, more convenient and less
dirturbing
