    At home. Movie theatres are expensive, and there's always someone disrupting it somehow. It's usually someone talking over the movie, or someone deciding that it's a good idea to bring their toddlers to an R-rated midnight showing of a movie. The cinematic experience is fun, but I don't really find it worth the money and annoyance.

    Plus, when I watch them at home, I can pause as needed and not have to worry about missing anything, I don't have to watch it at a certain time, and I can freely do something else while doing it.

    I prefer theatre. Less tendency to be distracted and people tend to focus more on the movie than on their phones. Still love the idea of falling in line and eating popcorn.

    AT HOME, definitely, it is much cozier and if I don't have to leave the house I don't want to.

    It usually depends on the movie I am watching, though as much as possible, I try to save money by not going out, but to just watch at home. But when I do love to spend a few bucks for a good movie, then why not.

    At home, I mean if you could download it for free why would I go to the theater and spend my money. Well there are some things that are better to watch in the theater especially if you can watch it in 3d, but mostly for me I watch it at home.

    Nowadays I enjoy watching movies at home together with my family because it's the practical way of spending my leisure time. Before becoming a mom I would really go to movie theaters because I don't have a kid to watch over and I have enough money for my wants. Being a parent, especially being a mother- we are very practical in everything that we do and even in spending quality time with the family- it has to be economical. It is also great to go out with your family and watch movies at the movie theaters for some time- if you have enough budget. Wherever the place you chose to go to what matters is the fun you will be experiencing. But still if it has to be wise, just stay at home and watch movie with your family.

    Well, watching movies at home is very convenient. You don't have to spend hundreds of pesos just to watch a two and half hour movie. You can just download movies on the internet. There are lots of ways and lots of apps to download movies. For me, I really prefer watching movies at home because there are times that I fast forward to see the end or sometimes if I don't understand some scenes I replay. I can also eat different kinds of food while watching. Less expense, less hassle.

    I just want to watch movies in home. I am not really fond of it so if I am bored or nothing to do I will just watch at home alone. I don't like in cinema because it just spend money for that. So yeah I love watch movie in home alone.

    I preferred watching movies at home. Aside from it's more convenient, it's also economical. You won't be disturbed by those people who keep on passing by to by stuff or used the restroom. You will understand the movie better for you can focus more when you are at home. You also have an option to watch as many movies as you want for a lot of movies nowadays could be downloaded on your phone.

    I personally enjoy watching movies at home more than in a movie theatre. I remember I used to buy dvds every weekend and order takeouts so that I could watch it with my whole family. You could re-watch it or do a movie marathon the whole day. It's cheaper as well. However, from time to time, I like going to a movie theatre especially if it's a movie that I'm dying to watch and just can't wait for the dvd to come out.

    Home - I love watching at my favorite couch, and eating chips with my two sister. Watching movies at home have pause button if you need to pee. You also have a rewind and forward button if you missed a scene or your annoying sister is just too loud talking and asking about something.

    I watch most movies at home because I like to spend the time with my family and it's more interesting when there's some interaction during the movie. You get to hear each other's thoughts on somethings and you could even learn from each other that way

    It depends on the hype level and how bad I want to watch the movie.

    I usually watch movies at home. I prefer it this way to avoid hassle in standing and waiting in front of the cinema just to watch a movie. But I do go sometimes when I have free time to spare. Watching at home gives the luxury of understanding the story better without distractions.

    I like to watch the movie at home than the theater. In my experience watching in theater I have to mind some other people laughing even not in funny scene and other chitchat that iritate me the most when I'm so focust on the movie. While at home my TV is not as big as the theater but I have peace watching alone and don't have to mind other people.

    I like the idea of movie theaters. Surround sound, a large screen, and lighting that caters to an immersive experience all have their appeal. Unfortunately, for the cost of a ticket and concessions, the downsides to public theaters outweigh their benefits in most cases.

    It is my understanding that theaters don’t get to keep a lot of the money they make in ticket sales, so they make up for it by overpricing their concessions. You get a small amount of candy, or you get a large amount of disproportionately priced popcorn and soda, none of which is of a quality I prefer.

    It depends on how much I am excited to watch it. If I really like the trailer then I would go watch it on the big screen. If it is something that is not so interesting, then I would watch it at home. Going to the theaters is getting very expensive these days. It would have to be something that I really like to get me to go watch it to the theaters.

    It depends on what I feel like after watching the trailer. But since most movies are not in the theaters you could say I usually watch movies at home. But I do love the theater going experience especially if the crowd is good. I will however cancel my plans for a theater if it happens to be too far from my house even If i want to see the movie in a theater, mainly because I like to watch movies alone. If I'm with someone (which I'm usually not) I might go then.

    When you watch movies at home, you can choose watch movies on the computer or television, while the environment is not very good, and the screens are small than cinema and the sound effect is worse. But one does not obey rules and you can lie on the couch watching movies, and eat food whenever you want.

    I generally prefer to watch movies in the comfort of my own home. The cinema, however, can't be beat when it comes to the major blockbuster releases. It's only with the theatre 'experience' that you can really appreciate the size and scale that film-makers wanted you to experience.
