The Hazards of Moviegoing

Although I love movies, I've found there are drawbacks to moviegoing. One problem is just the inconvenience of it all - To get to the theater, I have to drive for at least 15 minutes or more if the traffic is bad. It can take forever to find a parking spot, and then I have to walk across a huge parking lot to the theater. There I encounter long lines, sold-out shows and ever-increasing prices. And I hate sitting with my feet sticking to the floor because of other people's spilled snacks. Another problem is my lack of self-control. I often stuff myself with unhealthy snacks. My choices might include a bucket of popcorn and a giant soda. The worse problem is some of the other moviegoers. Kids run up and down the aisle. Teenagers laugh and shout at the screen. People of all ages drop soda cups and popcorn tubs, cough and burp, and talk to one another. All in all, I would rather stay home and watch a dvd in the comfort of my own living room :)

I agree. And his is the very reason I end up not going to the movie even though I want to watch the movie on a big screen. Comforts of the living room overpower the wish to watch it on big screen.
