Amen. I like to pause the video and ponder.

That's what I'm thinking. Truth is, I've only been to the movies maybe 3X in the last TEN years. While I think there will be a few less theaters per capita, nothing (right now) can replace a real theater with sound around. It's a nostalgic experience.

You can't substitute at home the feelings of 150 people scared to death at a horror movie, just for one example. And, I don't care how big your TV is, the sounds and sights of a big movie like Gladiator or Godzilla just aren't going to be the same.

The ambiance of a large theatre full of people just can't be replicated at home. A rom-com, or a mystery or cops and robbers movie sure, but not something that brings out emotions in hundreds of people.

I can remember being in London for the first showings of Kenneth Branaghs' Henry V. The rest of the audience was English or at least British and the surge of patriotism among the group seeing Engliands' greatest warrior king can't be easily explained and certainly not replicated seeing it alone in a room at home.

Most movies are crap today (TV also)...I can rarely get past the first 15 mins without switching it off. I can't imagine paying to see one...especially considering how expensive they are now.

People like to get out of the house and do something i guess, movies aren't just a thing they are huge. Movie theatre box office did 10 times the revenue of netflix in the US last year.

I used to go at least once a week until i had a kid now its like once a year.

I think the premise is assuming that you don't even have to wait, these days. Granted, as one poster mentioned, the quality you get (using a VPN or something) to see just released new films is generally much worse than theater quality.
Though your proclamation still applies, "To each his own".

Maybe it's because I don't have kids.
They still have a drive in right outside Detroit. I used to love going there. You can bring your own food, liquor, weed. The last movie ends around 4am. You can watch as many movies as you want.
