None, and I doubt I'll ever go to the cinema again.

None. I am sad. But, for the most part, new movies kinda stink. I don't think I'm missing out by watching on the home theater until writing quality improves.

I chose "None".
Last theater movie: Disney's Cars (2006), I think. Then some one-night-only Rush documentaries/concerts at the movie theater.

++++++++++

Had a great second wind in life through my 40's and early-50's, but I think we're done with crowds (unless wife changes her mind). We're just used to being at home now, enjoying some creative atmospheric role playing like a concert date in our living room. band


But I've got plans... <replace music with Rock.>

1 movie -- we were invited.

We go to movies and plays on rare occasions when relatives invite us. We get invites to more plays (2 in the last year) than movies.

Maverick, twice. Both times in 4DX, once with two of my kids and the second time with my third. Awesome both times.

The Batman.

Doctor Strange.


Missed Dune unfortunately and waiting until we get a new 80" and sound system before a home viewing.

Dune, The Northman, Maverick (twice), Spiderman something or another, one of them Suicide Squad movies, and some old movies they showed, the Goonies and Jurassic Park.
More to do with the fact that they were the only ones I felt were remotely worth seeing since 2020.

It's been over 20 years since I've been in a theater but I'm just a boring, homebody type.

You definitely go against the grain both here on SimHQ and with the overall national trend.

The last movie I went to see "On The Big Screen" was LOTRs The Two Towers. I realized ticket prices were too high then, and I have enough of an imaginative mind to enjoy a good story on my 32" (ariel) TV.
True, the sound system will impress me and the size of the picture can not be reproduced, but the memory of the experience is dictated by they quality of the story.
Though, Movies are a good date when you are young biggrin
