I prefer the movies I see at the theater to be ones that benefit from the large screen, surround sound, 3d if available.
Sometimes it's just fun to go out to the movies with some friends or a cute girl. In all honesty I would rather watch a movie at home.
Having to deal with the loud assholes either narrating or questioning the plot, the 'knowing' cinephiles who must laugh out loud at every reference to show their intelligence, I-phones, seat kickers, loud eaters and the latest prices for everything, I either try to do the off peak showing (where I really wanna see it on the big screen) or just wait until I can watch it in the privacy of my own home...
Off to shout at the kids on my lawn now...
I'm the same way - theaters in Manhattan are ridiculous these days, I'm impatiently waiting for the Alamo to show up.
I haven't been to the movies in over three years, I have had enough with people having sex in theaters, talking all the time and playing with their phones every time I go to the 42nd street theaters. I don't miss it one bit. The drafthouse is going to have their hands full because a lot of movie goers don't take " rules " kindly, but yes I can't wait until they open up next year.
