Yes and no. I do not have what people may call a home theatre. However, depending on the film, and if you consider the price to take a family of four, and the added costs why not. (Especially in countries in which the ticket prices, snacks and drinks, transportation is not cheap like Japan.)

No I would not. I still think cinemas have their place, television channels, besides news, do not, however.

“You really want your film to be in theaters as long as possible because that’s where they are meant to be seen,” Nolan said.

No... that is where you have a revenue stream. Someone else is going to make that money and they don't like it. I would prefer to watch at home, have my own food and relax. For some movies, yes the theater is a must do experience, but not for all movies.

If I can ever work out how to pop theatre popcorn at home, probably no anyway. Only a handful of movies I want to see on the big screen anyway. Now if they started making better movies? We'll see.
