Going to the Cinema Has Always Been
a Great Treat
Years ago, before
there were televisions in the average home, people spent a great
deal of time gathered around the radio for news and entertainment.
Going to the cinema was also a great way to relax, spend time with
family and get informed. In fact, instead of previews, films used to
have a short news spot immediately before the feature film. Double
features were also a selling point, allowing those on a budget to
see two films for the price of one. Of course, today things are much
different. News streams 24/7 via the Internet. However, while going
to the cinema has changed a bit, some things remain the same.
Going to the cinema has always been an amazing experience. However,
the draw is not just the movie itself. If you wait a few months, you
can likely see the same movie for half the price by renting or
buying it for your personal collection. Even so, people still go to
the cinema in droves. This is because the ambiance and atmosphere
provided by the big screen is very appealing. There's just nothing
like watching your favorite performer do their thing on that silver
screen. Add that to the stadium seating and theatre popcorn and it's
easy to see why so many people spring for the cinema even when they
have so many other options for entertainment. Being engulfed in the
plot line and characters helps you forget your own problems, if only
for a few hours.
Of course, unlike years past, not all films are family friendly.
Those ratings are there for a reason. While you may think that your
child is mature enough to handle an adult oriented film, seeing the
violence played out on that large screen with surround sound can be
enough to overwhelm any child. Carefully screen any film that you
plan on taking a minor to see. Even if it appears to be a children's
film, read the reviews before going and ask family and friends who
have seen it for their opinions. The last thing you want to do is
spend your hard earned money for a film that you have to walk out
Going to the cinema is a fantastic way to relax. It is also a
classic date. Whatever your reasons for seeing a new release, know
that you are in good company. Not only is visiting the cinema a
popular diversion today, but it has been for generations.
