There is nothing better than watching a movie in the theatres for the complete experience: the giant tub of caramel popcorn, the A.C. room, the excellent sound quality, great visuals, comfy chairs and not to mention watching it with your loved ones. Watching a movie at the theatre can make a great date or time spent with family and friends. As a movie-buff you may find that it is getting more and more expensive to watch movies at the theatre on a regular basis.
