Last week to see 1917. I started going to a theater one stop down the highway from work. They have reserved seating in all theaters and a decent amount of restaurants around it.

June 2018. No desire to go back.
A couple months. I enjoy going to the theater and don’t seem to have the problems others do with rude people.
I will say I very rarely go on opening weekend for anything. I reserve seats or get there early to get good seats. I tend to go to smaller theaters and I tend to go during off hours to avoid huge crowds.
About 15 months; have been hoping to go very soon and see "1917". Last movie was around Christmas-time 2018, and of course it was "The Grinch" remake. Ticket, popcorn and Coke was $22 IIRC.

Mid Last year when my son dragged me to see End Game.
I won't go back until the silly, grade school assigned seating goes away. Kinda wanted to see the new Bad Boys, but guess I'll wait until it comes out on Amazon.

a few weeks back saw 1917. I wait a while after something comes out so I can go see it in a pretty empty theater.
Several years for me too. When I see something that interests me, I just think it will be streaming or on cable soon.

Whenever They Shall Not Grow Old went on general release.
I go once or twice a year.
Most recently my youngest and I saw The Rise of Skywalker after bingeing all 8 previous movies.

We go a handful of times a year. Movie and dinner with the family. It isn't cheap, but this time is so fleeting. The years roll by. Went last weekend for Knives Out. It was enjoyable enough.

About a year ago. Can't even remember what I saw. We really enjoyed watching Endgame on our sofa, being able to pause it for bathroom breaks & more beer.

"The world is filled with violence. Because criminals carry guns, we decent law-abiding citizens should also have guns. Otherwise they will win and the decent people will lose."
--James Earl Jones
So long ago I recall not when it was or what we went to see.
"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system,,,, but too early to shoot the bastards." -- Claire Wolfe
"If we let things terrify us, life will not be worth living." -- Seneca the Younger, Roman Stoic philosopher
"The dominant media is no more ``mainstream`` than leftists are liberals." -- me
That was also the last movie I watched in a theater.
Once the big flatscreens became readily available I lost all interest in sitting in a theater.
Now that I have a young kid though I am considering giving it another shot for something to do......

‘Bout 45 minutes ago. Munchkin and I saw the new Jumanji. Both enjoyed. I even had popcorn and a soda. Now the last time I had popcorn and a soda in a theatre was “Cowboys and Aliens” so 2011ish.

Close to 30 years if memory serves. Much prefer the comfort of our home theater.

1980 +/-. Took my baby daughter to see the midnight showing of Rocky Horror Picture Show.
40 years would be a pretty good guess.
Not sure there even IS one within 50 miles of here.
Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.

It's been at least fifteen years since my wife and I have gone to the movies.
We would much rather watch them from home.
