WHAT MOVIES ARE “THEATER WORTHY” TO YOU?

I used to see previews of up coming movies and try to decided….to see, or not to see?  Today, instead of asking if I am going to see the movie or not I ask myself if the movie is “theater worthy” or not?

MY DEFINITION OF THEATER WORTHY:

A movie that is worth spending $69.00 to see it now

$42.00 for 4 regular tickets at $10.50ea + $27.00 for popcorn and drinks

* ($14.00ea for 3D movies)  ($15.50ea for Imax 3D movies)

-versus-

Waiting a month to watch the movie at home for $4.50

$1.00 to rent the movie from redbox + $3.50 for microwave popcorn and sodas

Since our family does a lot of camping, most of the time we opt for the less expensive, wait a month approach.  It is a win, win to save money and have great movies to watch while camping.

I know that some movies are “not the same” unless you watch them on the big screen.  Watching movies like Avatar and Transformers on the big screen does allow you to experience and enjoy the movie differently than watching it at home.  Although today’s home televisions are amazing, the movie theater experience is like nothing at home, unless you are sitting next to the baby that won’t stop crying.

What movies are Theater Worthy to you?

  1. Avatar for sure. !!!!!! most other movies can be seen just as well at home. It is just fun to go to the movies. But can be very expensive for families.

  2. Oh wow, I can’t even imagine! We don’t go to the theatre often, but if we really want the theatre experience for a movie then we go to the drive-in ($7 for 2 movies) or to the reduced cinema ($2.50/movie). And we save drinks and popcorn for movies at home. 🙂 We are workin’ on paying off student debt right now!
