Contributor's Corner: Movie Theater or VOD?
During the dawn of Viddy Well, we asked each interested contributor to fill out the same questionnaire. The questions spanned from grave to goofy, but the replies were nearly always unexpected. This week we'll take a look at the following question:
Movie theater or VOD?
I'm a mix of both. There are some movies that I want to see in theaters because I'm excited about them and want to see them as soon as possible. If I'm mildly interested in a movie and can wait, I'd rather stream it and save some $$$.
Theater, hands down. I can't beat the experience of sitting in front of that huge screen with great sound to back it up. VOD is nice, but can lead to more distractions, I think.
VOD. Beer, pause button, and no one around. That will always beat the theater for me.
I go both ways, but if I'm going to worship the cinema gods, I wanna do it in its proper environment. I've got an Alamo Drafthouse nearby, so the normal theater grievances don't really apply. See below video for hilarious context:
What do you think? Do you still enjoy a trip to your local theater? Should movie theaters go the way of the dodo? We want to know. Share your thoughts and feelings in the comments section below, and as always, remember to viddy well!
