I've been to the cinema one or twice in 25 years.

Although I watch Netflix often and still rent DVDs for the "I can't wait hit", I always make it to the cinema a number of times a year. Going with family and / or friends, getting good seats, snacks, occasionally a beer and settling into the atmosphere of it all with a Big Screen and Big Sound.

Chatting about the movie - hopefully enthusiastically - afterwards adds to the "event".

It's like going to live concerts, live sports games or exhibitions of famous artists in a Big Museum. Sometimes the small screen just doesn't do justice to it at all.

So much @ Film Festivals.

Support real filmmakers and the team.

Well, I do enjoy the large screen. Couldn't imagine seeing "A Star is Born" on a small screen or others. I don't have a 85" 4K OLED yet but the screen in the Sony Store did look amazing.
