Hey, there. How often do you watch movies at cinema? Do you think it's a little bit expensive in your country? When going to cinema, do you prefer going alone or watching it with friends/families?

It depends. Firstly, the movie has to be interesting. Then I need to have money. Plus, there should some friends who also want to watch the movie. So when all these factors merge, I go to a movie. Usually it is a couple of times a month. I love to watch movies. I generally try to catch the early morning show. It is very cheap with same facilities. The ticket price is usually 1/3rd or 1/4th of the original price. So, that is really cheap. I have never gone to the cinemas alone. I go there with friends or families or both.

:) Thank you for your response, sagnik. Yeah, the earliest show is usually much more cheaper that usual. When I go to cinema to watch movie, I will choose a time when there is an half discount. Therefore, it will not be expensive, but kinda acceptable.

So you get discounts in China as well. Great. We do not get much discounts. Just that early morning show at 10am or something. That is the show which is cheaper and which I can afford.

Well i rarely watch moviesi n cinema coz i have net connection and Dolby surround sound theater at home so use to watch at home only. But if good movies come around like Avatar, 3 idiots, titanic, matrix etc then i use to watch them in cinema only and only with frdz. Today movies have so many obscene scenes which u can't watch with ur family specially in INDIA so never go with parents.

I do not watch movies until they could out on DVD any more. There are a number of reasons. It is too expensive to go anywhere these days. The closest cinema is way too far away. And the fact is that there just are not as many movies that interest me any more. The movies are just not capturing my imagination any more. When that factor is added to those that I already mentioned, it just is not worth it to head to the theaters any more.

I don't go as much as I would like and it is pretty expensive (here in the UK it is around £8 for an adult to see a movie). Never been on my own although think i might quite enjoy it - it's not like you talk to anyone when you are there anyway beyond the brief analysis afterwards. Always been with friends or a girlfriend.

^^ Ha, the same to me. I've never been to cinema alone, always with my boyfriend or other friends.
