Movie theater ticket sales have been down recently, sliding 14.9% in the first quarter of 2019. Many attribute this to the dip to streaming services that let you watch films from the comfort of your couch. While watching from your living room can be relaxing, there are several reasons why it’s worth it to make the trip to the theater for a fun experience you can’t get at home.
3 Perks to Going to the Movie Theater
1. No Spoilers
Before social media, the only way to have a movie spoiled was for your friend to tell you. Now, you just have to read the wrong social media post, and you’ll know the whole plot of the movie.
If you’re sensitive to spoilers, it’s best to see the movie in the theater, preferably on opening weekend. Word travels fast about the latest blockbusters, so you’ll want to race out to see them.
Theater concessions have come a long way. The selection isn’t just fountain drinks and chocolate bars anymore.
Many theaters have added high-end options like burgers, ice cream, and chicken wings. Some locations even have a bar where you can get a beer or cocktail to enjoy with your film — making it the perfect date night or special occasion.
Of course, nothing can beat movie theater popcorn with extra butter.
Some people are content showing up to a movie 15 minutes late and skipping the trailers. However, trailers are an integral part of the movie-going experience.
Trailers let you know what movies are coming out in the same genre as the film you’re seeing. If you like comedies, you’ll learn about new comedies coming out. If they look interesting, you can make a mental note and check them out when they release.
Plus, debating whether a movie looks interesting based on the trailer is also something you and your friends can debate once your screening is over.
