  • With movies $14 per person - for 2D! - and matinees still $10 and ending at 2pm, we usually wait for the DVD! We go to maybe 2 or 3 movies a year.

    For the kids it's maybe one new release movie a year, but a bunch during the summer movie series at the theater.

    I <3 Netflix.

  • It's been around 7 years since I have been to the movies. We always wait until it comes out on DVD. it just cost to much to go to the movies and most of the time I can find the dvd at the library. Renting it is free and we get it for seven days. Sometimes I have to wait a week or two after it comes out before I can get it, but free is free :-D.

  • It depends on the film. If it's something that has great visuals, we might go to see it on the big screen. Also, just before the awards season, we sometimes go to see the films with multiple nominations; or if a movie has a lot of buzz we'll go see it. Beyond that, we often wait for it to come to cable, or maybe rent it.

  • We usually wait for Netflix. We'll buy the DVD if it's something that will get watched a lot, but otherwise, it's Netflix.

  • Since having my little girl I have to wait until the dvd comes out, it is frustrating but it beats the alternative. I use to love to go to the theatre though and as soon as she is old enough to sit through one, we will be going back to doing that.

  • I eventually buy the DVD after a while I go to movie stop and get it used!
