I went to my first Drive-in the other night with one of my friends. Not very many around anymore and ours is a four screen theater playing four different movies then does a double feature after the first movie.
Drive-ins are pretty fun, a little chilly, and way different of an experience then a movie theater
Movie theaters definitely have perks like climate control and better sound. Drive-ins are just fun, it's a different experience and cheaper. You can go as a group or it can be very intimate with just two. We have one near us that has two screens and plays double features.
I haven't been to the drive-in in FOREVER. And I think the last time I was at the movie theater was for The Dark Knight. I usually prefer to watch movies at home. If I have to take a potty or snack break, I can pause the movie.
Drive in's...great fun and nostalgia for someone as old as me and my hubby. Not much for movie watching or comfort, however.
Movie theater...best MOVIE experience and nice A/C to eat our HIGHLY overpriced treats.
Home Theater? We have one now...even with popcorn maker....but it still lacks the OOMPH of a real movie theater. Even if it is clean and comfortable.....a sixty inch HD TV and Digital 5 level sound create a great experience, but when a BIG new flick comes out...I am STILL going to the theater!!!!
