Personally I would like to see a film at home because I can control the process as I want to.But sometimes I find that to see it in the cinema with a big screen would be much more exciting. What's your opinion?

I love going to the movies but cannot always afford to go. That's when I wait for the dvd so I can watch at home and it costs me less. To be honest, I much prefer seeing movies on the big screen.

I think I have to say I like to see it in the movie theater. There's just something about the whole experience that I enjoy. Although in saying that, I think that movies are getting a little on the expensive side these days. If it's something that I've been dying to watch, then we go to see it in the theater, if it's something that we've just shown a passing interest in, we'll either wait for it to come out on rental or on sale on DVD. A lot of times, a review of a film can perk up my interest. So, I always check those out too for good movies.

Yeah...I also like to review some classic movies.Sometimes I would go to cinema to see some new movies.If it's great,I would still buy it so I can appreciate it again.That feeling's really wonderful!

I prefer to watch a movie at home. I don't have to pay the price of an expensive ticket. I have my own snacks. And I can also watch it at my own pace. I can pause it when I have to go to the restroom or want something to eat. But I would like for my son to see a movie at the theater, he hasn't been to one yet.

There are films worth viewing in big screen like those of Lord of the Rings, Superman and those highly action-filled or suspense movies. But there are also some movies who I opt to just watch at home.

I like the big screen a lot, but nowadays you just can pay for every movie to go to the movies. It just costs too much, even if you get some reduce for because you are a student.

i would definitely want to see a movie on the big screen. it's just much more exciting and you can really concentrate on the movie. unlike if at home, you can hear the doorbell, telephone ringing, other people talking, or your sister or brother listening to music in his/her room. there are just so many destractions at home. the feeling is much more intense inside the cinema.

I love watching movies at the cinema especially when you have a large cheeseburger and fries in tow, those were the days when we were still dating. But now there are three kids in the picture, the cinema watching has ceased. It's mostly dvds for us now.

Well I love to watch them up on the big screen. Usually it is far better to do so. That doesn't mean though that I go though. Far too often the movies are too crowded for me to be able to enjoy the movie unless I wait till near the end of it's run and then I might miss it. The cinimas are usually over priced as well and it's a luxery for me to go to the theater. When I can see a movie once for $20 (getting in, pop-corn and pop) or I can wait and buy it so I can watch it as many times as I want for usually under $20 I usually just wait.

Cinema hall is much better due to the big screen.Also there is much better sound quality that becomes a very exciting experience.
