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.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?
DAMM right on everything you said. last time i went to the movies i had idiots on there phones taking videos and talking when they should have been sitting down and shutting the F up and respecting the other people!!!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!
Not to mention being able to pause for bathroom breaks and food refills.people still goto the movies. id'e rather watch movies in the comfort of my own home. no distractions and no rude people!!! i have a media room in my home and one out bt the pool with an outdoor kitchen and wet bar that's alot more fun than going to the movies. whenever fottball's going on i always have BYOB parties!!!
true!!!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.
