    It’s the smell of popcorn that hits you when you walk in, the dark, immersing environment where I can actually sit through a movie without being interrupted by kids.

    The complete lack of guilt that comes with ordering a choc-top before lunch time. Where else does ice-cream constitute a perfectly reasonable brunch?!

  • Tracy M

    The excitement that comes with a new release movie, especially an action movie and watching it on the big screen. The choc tops, popcorn and no interruptions for 90 to 120 minutes.

    A movie allows you to escape in to a new or different world for a while. You can experience things you would never otherwise, you can be lost in a tale and come out richer for it.

    It’s not the atmosphere (although thats pretty special), it’s not the anticipation when the lights dim and the opening music crescendo’s to get your attention (thats cool too!), it’s not even the mouth watering smell of popcorn that pervades the theatre so much yummier than the microwaved version…..the tech geek in me actually loves that when a movie is done RIGHT and made for cinema, they make use of the far superior screen size to deliver amazing wide screen shots. The Downton Abbey movie made the most of the extra screen size to deliver on these fabulous wide shots of the horse and carriages, the home, and the scenery in a way that is not going to look nearly as good on a home screen!

    It’s nostalgic, apart from how the film is shown, cinema is still quite old school whilst being simultaneously current.

    I love the peace and quiet. No yelling and screaming from the children as they are too absorbed in the big screen. Even though the movie volume may be loud, it is tranquility for me.
