Whereas it’s undeniable that watching a movie at a cinema is an awesome experience, it’s just fair if we can be able to compare this experience with watching a movie from the comfort of your home. The reality is that this is often a personal preference therefore different people will have different reasons why they prefer cinemas or home movies.
In this article we are going to look at 5 benefits of watching a movie at home.
You have the opportunity to pause
When watching a movie, you only get to enjoy the benefit of the pause button when something important comes up that you have to attend to and you don’t want to miss the rest of the movie. When at home, you have the freedom to hit the pause button on your remote control but when at the cinemas, this is not an option, you either choose to attend to your emergency or choose to complete the movie.
You have the freedom of time
The beauty about watching a movie at home is that you are not limited by time as you can watch your movie at any time of day or night you want. This is not a benefit you get to enjoy at the cinema because you can only watch movies at their stipulated time of showing.
You have more choice of movies
The reality about cinemas is that they don’t show all movies. In fact, they only show movies that had a big enough budget to factor in distribution through cinemas. When watching at home, you will get to have more movie choices because you have the freedom to choose from a wide array of movies that are available online or no Blu-ray.
It’s way cheaper
When you combine the cost of the movie as well as the overpriced snacks, you will realize that it’s way costlier watching a movie at the cinemas as compared to downloading or renting one to watch at home. Therefore if you have a tight budget, you are much better off watching the movie at home.
It’s an awesome family bonding time
Many families have movie nights at home because it’s an awesome opportunity to get the entire family together to bond over a movie. This close intimate moment can’t be enjoyed at the cinema because of the large crowds of people.
All in all, there’s no reason why a person can’t do both. There are times when a cinema will make more sense, and there are times when a home movie will make sense. It all boils down to preference.
