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.
Cleary the cinema.

Bohemian rhapsody was absolutely fantastic. Its on my mind all week! As was A star is born.

And yep there’s something pretty therapeutic sitting in a room full of strangers staring at a screen munching on lots of popcorn and chocolate.

Ha, Ah in fairness they are probably better behaved than most of the attendees at a parent and baby screening!

I went to see the new Halloween over here in Spain on Halloween night, worst decision of my life. Teenagers laughing and shouting, taking photos, videoing, talking on phones, doing Instagram stories. There was also a young one that had her foot up on the seat beside me and never stopped shaking her foot for the whole ****ing film, I could see It out the corner of my eye and really pissed me off. The talking destroyed the atmosphere and tension of the movie. I was so pissed off that I ate a pizza after to cheer me up. Anyways yes, cinemas have gone to **** and I doubt I'll be setting foot in one for a while.

The unending slew of superhero drivel is a major deterrent.

Are you sure you weren’t on a bus?

I go a good bit, most recently to A Star Is Born

The opening scene with Bradley Cooper playing ‘Black Eyes’ almost had the room shaking.. wouldn’t have enjoyed it 10% as much at home.

Dunkirk would be another example of a cinema experience

I love horror films but I have learned from painful experience NEVER see one in the cinema teenagers and horror movies are like flies around shi*e.

Cinemas are grand, the films on the other hand, absolute tripe. I loved going to the cinema, but there's rarely a film worth watching in the cinema anymore. Super hero films, everywhere. They can die a death, absolute trash.

The Lighthouse is great. No groups of noisy kids or people talking during the film, has a bar, you can bring your beer in to the movie. It's years since I've been in any other cinema.

When you put it that way it's a nice idea but when you see the story the first thing that comes to mind is dogs don't watch movies.

It's a terrific cinema and crowd are generally really excellent.
Plus pretty reasonable especially if you are a member.
