I make a point of never going on a Wednesday as that's the cheap ticket night in my local cinema and the couple of times I went that night it was jammed. Monday and Tuesday nights are usually the quietest, and as a Three customer I can get two tickets for a tenner, which is even cheaper than a single regular priced ticket.

The biggest issue with cinema these days, is that the standard of films has decreased year on year.

Like in 2017, the top then highest grossing films were either sequels, remakes or the latest in the Marvel universe (in order; Star Wars: The Last Jedi; Beauty and the Beast; The Fate and the Furious; Despicable Me 3; Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle; Spider-Man:Homecoming; Wolf Warrior 2; Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2; Thor:Ragnorak; Wonder Woman)

It's funny that just have new techniques and technology have made films more visually spectacular than ever before, originality has plummeted off the cliff.

Stella is €19 per ticket but it is worth every penny.
You can also get locked while watching the movie.

Are you trying to upset people deliberately? Wonder Woman is a DC film.

Like people getting Star Wars and Star Trek mixed up unforgivable.

I would definitely agree with the green exit lights wrecking the viewing. Sometimes it feels like sitting in a 1980s kitchen that had one of those long florescent bulbs illuminated behind you. Can be distracting to the point of wishing the movie was over

We visit the cinema on average twice a month, yeah sure we could throw on a decent film in the comfort of our own home but I sit at home every other evening, and go for a change of scenery.

I never experience any badly behaved audience you speak of, or ripped damaged chairs etc.

I’m in Waterford and Omniplex is fantastic value, this evening we got a ticket, popcorn and drink for €10 each. Odeon on the other hand is crazy prices, €12 for the ticket alone!

We would continue to visit the cinema regardless of how good the home sound/screen system would get. Yes there are other times where we would prefer to stay at home and do that instead, but it’s nice to get out on a random Sunday night to watch a movie.

You have to pay for a seat for the dog and everything I booked one for myself and one for the Rothweiler seats K10 and K9.

I have a dog BTW the last thing I would do is take him to the cinema...he is happy barking at dogs and cats on the TV.

Cinema wise the lighthouse and the Stella are streets ahead in Dublin the rest tend to attract talking, rustling, phone using @rseholes.

Watched it tonight myself, perfect movie for the cinema. Wouldn't have the same lustre on the TV or laptop. Some films are just made for the big screen and it's a fantastic escape.
