    I don't know about you guys but even though i like torrenting codvid-19 has really made me appreciate the big screen movie theater going experience. Does anyone else on here miss movie theaters?

    Not particularly, but then again I only went when there was a movie I highly looked forward to watching, and with friends. The last time was Interstellar on December '14.

    Yes.

    I generally only go once or twice a year, but I have really missed it over the past 6 months.

    I really miss. Haven't been to the cinema for almost a year due to the pandemic

    Not really. I can watch a crap CAM of some random film without needing the experience. Granted it is a bit different taking the kids for a treat in which case yeah I do miss that part (overpriced sweets and drinks apart)

    Not really. Last film I saw was 1917 just so I could try and experience the scale (see that it's now on Amazon Prime). But with the price, the never knowing you are going to have Guinness world record holders in the big head category in front of you, or disruptive muppets - its so much aggro. That and worrying about the sound levels (don't want to make my tinnitus worse...). We just have regular movie nights at home - no ads, food, drinks, good company and bonding - all nice and predictable at a fraction of the cost and no hassles.

    Nice to see you alive and kicking Gribley

    I certainly miss the collective oohs and aahs of a theatre but having my own snacks and bathroom and pause button has plenty of advantages.
