Distance to screen matters. I have a 65” screen. Considering I am maybe 12’ at most from my screen, how does that compare to the small theater screens and distance from them today?
The last theater I visited had dozens of atmos ceiling speakers and a 35' wide screen. If you arrived late, you were likely to sit no more than 20' from the screen. ;)

There's no rule that says you must choose the smallest screen in town unless you're actively chasing after bad movies.

The last movie I saw in an actual theater was Harper Valley PTA in 1978. That's when our small local theater closed. Definitely not interested in the cineplexes that popped up to replace those. Did go to a few drive-ins after that but the last film we saw at those was probably Star Trek: Into Darkness in 2013. Much prefer to watch movies in the comfort of our home. We have a 55" 4K tv and 9.2 channel Atmos receiver - more than enough to keep us happy for most films. Also have a DLP projector and 84" screen when I feel like setting that up. Don't have to worry about sitting next to annoying people who aren't courteous enough not to have conversations or turn their phones off. The food is better and cheaper here too! :D

Outdoor Theater ( screened in)-
165” Screen
5.1.4 ( Klipsch RF26-FA Front and Rear Towers all Bi-Amped, Front and Rear Atmos)
SVS Tower Subwoofer

Movies coming out on Streaming Services 45 days after Premiering at Theaters, means I doubt I will go to a Theater again.

Also, with current Life Events, I really do not want to be around people right now, have to force myself to leave the house.

Not to mention being able to pause for bathroom breaks and food refills.
Why did the theaters ever do away with intermission? Would be a money making opportunity for them to sell refills.

true!!!
i don't know why theaters did away with intermission. i agree that would be a great money maker as well. that's where they make there $$$ is off snacks and drinks!!! the bloopers and deleted scenes are nice sometimes to!!! it's a much better experience when you can have home cooked food and a cold one and relax. the seats in the movies were always uncomfortable also!!!
