Which one do you prefer?? Watching the movie at theatre or Watch the same by DVD at home.. I never go for the new released movie.. We use to watch the movie after a month later only, we use to watch the same at theatre, some of the movies which is entertaining for my kid.. And we use to prefer the old movies by DVD at home only, because we can watch along with our regular work, and also all of them join together watch the same with different comments, and if we like any songs, we can watch the same, as many time as we want.. And if the lunch or dinner time comes, we use to put pause in the player, then we continue the same where we kept, once the lunch/dinner over..

Hi! I really like to watch movies but watching every movie in theatre alwyas is quite expensive so I only watch movies in theatres with my friends whenever we plan a movie date. If only I had a theatre room in our house that would be really sweet because I like to watch movies as big as in the theatres but watching it at home is nice too. Actually I would really prefer it if I watch a movie on DVD that I bought. I dont buy many dvd's since they are expensive too and so I usually just rent. Since renting did not come into your choice then I would have to go for watching bought dvd's at home. Its cheaper than in the theatres because watching in theatres you only get to watch the movie once, 2 movies for the price of one during double features but after that no more. With dvd's at home, maybe you only have one movie but a dvd has extra clips and features and things and you get to watch it as many times as you like thats why I think investing in DVds is cheaper.^_^

Good idea. But dont get any pirated DVDs of the new films, this is affence in law in india.. always watch the DVD which is officially decleared.

yep, its against the law here too. Sad thing is that pirated cd's are very widespread that you almost see them in every corner. The good thing of it though is that the law conduct raids of these stores regularly so even if they pirated business wont be wiped out entirely at least they lessen the sales.

Ilike both of them it's hard to match the experience of seeing a movie in the theatre to the DVD. DVD's are good for seeing some of the movies you can't get to. I like having the option.

it's hard to match the experience of going to a real theatre for a movie. I do like to watchmovies on DVD because I can't see all the movie that I want to in the theatre. It is nice to be able to see movies for a fraction of what you could in the theatre.

for me...i prefer to watch a movie for the first time at the movie theater. some movies just are way better seeing them on the big screen, but doesnt have quite the same force on a tv screen. thats not to say i dont watch dvd cause i own a whole lot of movies.

I would rather watch them at home. I like to be able to be comfortable when I watch a moive I can even wear my pajamas and curl up in my chair I can pause the movie if I want to and I can get snacks anytime I want.

When a partyicular movie is a great hit, i prefer watching it in theatre rather than watching in small screens like in tv as many of teh effects wil also be lost and more over the interest you get in watching movie in big sreen wont be got in small screens

I haven't watched a movie at a theatre in many years. I prefer to watch them at home because it's easier, more comfortable, the snacks are better and cheaper and you don't have to drive home afterwards.

It all depends on the movie. If its just a comedy movie then I will wait for it to come out on dvd to me comedys are just not worth seeing on the big screen. But if its an action or fantasy movie the I would rather see it at the theators to have that bigger picture and better sound. But like I said it all depends on the movie itself.
