I never go to the movie theater 18 23.68%
1-3 26 34.21%
4-6 11 14.47%
7-9 1 1.32%
10-12 6 7.89%
12+ 14 18.42%

Haven't been in a decade. Not worth it, even with just a decent home theater for me personally. It's too much hassle now, since the smaller local theaters have gone way downhill and a quality theater is over an hour drive. Local shops don't have BD movies and the DVD selection just keeps getting worse.

I download everything now. I would pay to stream it, but that's not really available here. Even with the recent wireless upgrade to the area, I've been told by my neighbors that Netflix, Disney, etc, stream at 720p best case, anytime after supper during peak hours and into the early morning. That's unacceptable. 1080p isn't exactly future tech at this point, and if I can get that quality from free downloads, then that's where I'm getting it. If those companies want my money, then bring better service to the area. I won't hold my breath.

I'd say 3-5.

I went 22 times last year, and around 10 so far this year I'll probably end up going a lot this year now that I live close to a few cinema's. When I was in college I was going most weeks, so I could potentially go to see 30-40 films a year in the cinema.

Four to five - mostly superhero and Pixar movies.

Last year I went 40 times.

The funny thing is that before that I had gone only once and invited by some relatives. Thanks to Dragon Ball Super Broly for bringing me back to the theathers. I went to see that movie and I loved the experience, so I kept going on a regular basis.

Creed II
How to train your dragon 3
Lego 2
The Favourite
Alita Battle Angel
Captain Marvel
The Curse of la llorona
Avengers Endgame (3)

Before I had a kid, I went to the theatre about once a month. After the kid, it's 2-3 times per year. I'd like to go more, but I just can't find the time. I very much enjoy the experience though.

Way to many to keep count of or remember, but I will try

Dragon Ball Super Broly


I want to eat your Pancreas

Captain Marvel


Avengers Endgame (three times in the theater in fact)

Detective Pikachu

John Wick 3

Toy Story 4

Spider-Man Far From Home (two times in the theater in fact)

Once Upon Time in Hollywood

It Chapter 2


Zombie Land Double Tap

The Lighthouse


Once Piece Stampede

Konosuba the Movie

Ford v Farrari

Knives Out

The Rise of Skywalker

So about 21 movies I saw in the theater last year. That is also not counting ones I watched at home like Rascal Doesn't Dream of Dreaming Girl and The Irishman.

0 at the cinema

around 300 in my home cinema, 100imch projector and better sound than in the cinema, also better comfort, and the advantage of pausing if needed

No time, there are animes to watch.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

No more than 3. Don't like movies in general, rather spend my time reading, surfing online and, of course, playing games.

My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.
