Now Playing and Upcoming Films : Do you miss movie theaters?

Do you miss movie theaters?

I never really appreciated movie theaters until they all closed and who knows when they will be safe enough to make a comeback. The nachos with absurdly salty cheese layered on top. The overpriced candy. Sneaking into a second movie in certain places with lax security. Watching half an hour of previews before the film. Hissing at the sun like Dracula when you walk out and it’s still sunny. Keeping your 3D glasses from the IMAX places. All great memories.

Re: Do you miss movie theaters?

Not really. I don't like crowds and I've had movies ruined for me by too many noisy, obnoxious assholes. I'd already stopped going to movie theaters long before the virus arrived. It's sad to think of them sitting there unused and unloved though.

Re: Do you miss movie theaters?

πŸ‘ I don't miss them either. They're too loud (do they really have to be that loud? I mean, really?) Nope, don't miss them. Too crowded and boisterous.


When I was a little kid, my mother would drop my cousin and me off at this theatre that was an actual performance theatre that doubled as a movie theatre as time went on. I still remember all that red velvet, the drapes on the side of the screen, the gold crested seats, the curved stairs to the balcony, and the flamboyant patterned carpet.


I loved the popcorn and the jujubes,… This was an old theatre that was preserved and taken care of since the early 20th. (The town itself is a very historic town, and has some beautiful architecture that's been maintained). It's still a functioning playhouse.

This theater is in Auckland, New Zealand. It's a real icon.



Re: Do you miss movie theaters?

Wow, that's so beautiful. Now that's a grand theatre! It makes the little art deco styled theatre in my hometown seem so small by comparison. The Auckland Civic is magnificent with a sky like that. I like the idea of the comet.

Have you ever seen a classical theatre that didn't have red velvet seats? :)

What are you? In high school?

Most adults stick to sneaking into parks.

Drive in theaters are about to make a huge comeback. You can eat nachos in the car aura.gif

Re: Do you miss movie theaters?

Yeah but it’s hard to replicate movie theater nachos. That cheese is heaven sent.

Drive-ins are my favourite type of theatre. Probably helps that my car has a kitchen and bed yes.gif

Re: Do you miss movie theaters?

I miss the experience. I actually bought movie theater tasting popcorn to watch Netflix and HBO at home.

Re: Do you miss movie theaters?

From the time I was a teen until my late 20's, my cousin and I would go to the movies almost every weekend. It was a popular meeting spot for the kids in my neighborhood.

I don't miss the crying babies or the unattended kids running up and down the aisle. I like the convenience of being able to pause the movie for a bathroom break or snack run, and rewinding or fast forwarding to rewatch a scene or to skip past it.

I miss all the movies that have been delayed months if not a full year.

Beware the sound of one hand clapping.

Re: Do you miss movie theaters?

Vaguely. In general, I just miss the world the way it was before the virus.

Re: Do you miss movie theaters?

Same. There was an idyllic peace In our minds that doesn’t exist anymore. And I don’t foresee anything resembling normalcy for the next 2-3 years.

Re: Do you miss movie theaters?

Nope. There are great memories, yeah. But cinema hasn't been very good in years. So there wasn't much incentive to go any more even before corona.
