Some people would like to watch movies on DVDs or on the Internet at home.It costs less and gives you more liberty when you are at home.But I prefer to go to cinema.I enjoy the feeling of watching movies with other audience and I am excited watching the big screen.It makes me feel as if I was a role in the film. Well,so which do you prefer,to watch a movie in the cinema or at home?

Good day sunshineyunlong, Well for me I would prefer to watch on the convenient of our home . Because if I watch in our it is pretty much cheaper and I can enjoy and relax more . And I watch a movie on our home I can lie on my back while watching .

Hello,brienn.Yes,it is more convinent to see a film at home.Lying on the sofa and watching with our favourite food is really comfortable.

Yes, I agree with both of you, it is really appealing to watch movie at your own level of comfort, cheaper and have freedom to watch it in your own time. No one to disturb, or no need to get up and go for food. No intervals too

I prefer to watch movies in my own home. It is more convenient. You can watch part of it today and the rest at a later time. It is also alot cheaper to stay home and watch movies.

Yes, watching a movie in parts is what I do a lot, I mostly watch movies at night, If I start the movie at 12 am, I would watch it till 1 am and then watch the rest of it later.

I like home a lot more. Most movie theatres don't offer food that I eat so I prefer the convience of eating what I want and pausing the film if I need to get up. I don't like it when people talk loudly during the movie or forget to turn their cell phones to vibrate. The movie theatre use to be nicve when i was a kid but now I just don't see any appeal in it.

The reasons you specify are applicable to me as well, even I like watching movie at home, but I watch movie at theaters because thats the only time when I can watch movie with my boyfriend. Even though I can't have the food available there, I adjust and have popcorn only, I really enjoy the time with him. The time when I watch movie, the theater is full of couples and nobody wants to be disturbed by unnecessary calls so all of them have their cell on silent mode or switched off, so I don't face that problem.

When I like a movie and am really looking forward to it, then I watch it in the cinema. I enjoy watching a movie in the cinema not just for the movie itself, but also for the experience of being there and getting to see and hear the effects in its full form. For movies that I'm not too keen on watching, I would either just get the DVD or wait for it to come out on TV. I don't really watch movies online, because I get distracted and would just rather surf or get on forums instead.

Hi, yunlong. It depends, I would go to cinema if I feel I love the movie very much. And BTW, bought a DVDs is expensive than one movie tickets~~~ =D but you can watch it over and over again as you want. Normally, I will go to cinema first, and after that if I feel the movie is worth to buy, I will just buy it. And yes, big screen is much more excited for me! Have a nice day!

Hi sunshineyunlong, my son likes watching cinema movies. Whenever he comes back, he likes to invite me to watch movie in the cinema together. It’s really fun and enjoyable to watch our favorite films in the theater. Apart from the huge and conspicuous screen the sound system is really great as well I always indulge in the scene of the movie completely. No distraction, no disturbance as well sitting in the air con cinema. Solely for watching the movie. Unlike at home, I would like to type mylot posts or doing other house chores while watching movie. Though we have to take the trouble to drive there as well as have to pay more for the cinema ticket, it’s still worth to pay for the reasonable entertainment expenses once in a while Have a nice day and happy posting!

I know it is much more interesting to watch the movie from the cinema. However, here the cinema tickets are expensive. It costs a lot if you go to watch the movie with your family. I prefer to use this money to have a good meal in a restaurant. So we don't often go to watch the movie in the cinema. I love China

I like both but i think i prefer watching a movie at home. You can pause, rewind if you need to get up and do something for a moment, plus you can watch it at whetever time you like. Its certainley a lot cheaper but going to the cinema is an "experience" aswell.
