Today, it will cost me up to $11 to see a movie and not buy any snacks (which I don't buy anyway).
I can go to the library and check the movies out for FREE. If I choose to, I can watch 40 movies a month (there is a 10 movie limit to check out) and pay only $12 in transportation. FORTY MOVIES for the cost of one at the theater. I can also check the movie out for THREE weeks!
I go to the library twice a month. So, I watch up to TWENTY movies for $6.00 for transportation since I don't drive and that will be another blog post.
It doesn't bother me to go to the movies alone. Last night, I sent a text message to some friends and told them I don't go to the movies as they wouldn't let me wear my pajamas as I did when I was a child. Several laughed. One friend said he liked the fact that he can watch movies at home and not pay extra for the ice cream.
One girlfriend said the movies theater would allow me to arrive in my pajamas. I draw the line and don't wear pajamas in public.
I'm not bashing movie theaters. I went last year when a friend treated me to a show. Only thing is, I can't pause the movie in a theater to go visit the bathroom.
I do enjoy getting all comfortable and watch movies while in my pajamas and in bed. I also enjoy being able to "pause" the movie and not miss anything. I can also watch the movie numerous times before I take it back to the library if I choose to.
