That is funny, pretty much every movie that Fiance and I want to see we will go see it at the movies; so we usually find ourselves at the theaters twice a month. In the winter months (between Jan-Apr) no good movies are ever out so we tend to go less then but more during the summer and right before the holidays. For us, dinner and movie nights are just one of our "date nights," it’s cool to just go out on Friday night and do that with my Fiance and then sit and snuggle and much on gummi worms… I just love it 🙂

We used to go all the time, but lately there hasn’t been anything out we’ve wanted to see. We were also so busy with the wedding that we didn’t have time. And we just can’t justify spending $10 per ticket! We watch a lot via Netflix and our DVR.

We probably go once every 2-3 months.  Our local theater has $5 movies on Sundays, so we usually try to go then!

we go rarely to the movies but are HUGE dvd watchers (we have a 65" plasma plus luxury leather cinema seats at home-with cup holders no less, hubby picked them out of course)

but we are going to the movies this friday – gold class (ie seats just like home but with wait staff) to see Harry Potter and im pretty excited about that

We watch movies at home a lot, but we only go to the movies a couple of times a year. We tried to go see The Hangover yesterday, but we had the time messed up. I took Lil to see Ice Age 3 on Thursday.

@eloping – if we had a 65" home theater I am sure we would be DVD watchers more often too! Ours is only 50" or something, boo. Problem is that we can’t sit down for a whole movie at home and not get distracted! It usually takes us starting it and stopping it 3 different times to make it through the whole movie! Weird, I know 🙂

Definitely with you on that one! By the time you buy tickets and even if you just get something to drink you’re going to spend $30. We do go to the $1.50 show once in a while. It ends up being $10 with pop and popcorn. We like to just rent movies off the TV mainly. You don’t have to take em back and they cost the same as renting. Plus I would so rather lay on the couch and cuddle then sit in chairs with 489273487 other people.

Pre-engagement, we’d go a 2-3 times a month.  That dropped to about once every 2 months.  I have a feeling it’ll pick up again now that the wedding is over.

Ordinarily, my fiance and I don’t really go to the movies all that often (maybe 3 times a year).  But since the release of Terminator and Transformers, we have been going to the movies more often.  We generally go to the first showing to get a significant discount at the matinee price.  It’s definitely worth waking up early knowing that you are one of the first to watch a new release.

I love going to the movies, but my fiance isn’t a fan… so I usually just wait it out (cheaper, too, but they have better popcorn than I can make at home)

We used to go more often than we do now, but we still go fairly often because we still both live with our parents and it’s one of the easiest ways to get out together. =D We go maybe once every two months now, but we used to go more like twice a month.

I love going to the movies!  But unfortunately, Mr. Quiche tends to equate them with a petri dish, so we don’t that often.  Plus, it is ridiculously expensive in the city!  I go with my girlfriends quite a bit!
