"You're still watching [movies] on a small platform, and it's not that social experience,"
1) I have a 70" 4k TV at home. I sit about 8' from the screen. Proportionally, at your typical theater distance of 36' feet, that's a what, 27' wide screen? Small Platform? WTF?
Further, while a nice theater might have a very good sound system, I do too, with ample subwoofer and 7.1 THX select sound - my sound is just fine.
Further, I have FAR more comfortable seating, I can lay down if I want to, and I never stick to the floor nor have to share a goddamned armrest with anyone. I have to take a crap? Pause - I missed nothing.
So no, technically, I don't believe any theater can improve my 'home theater' technically.
2) I watch movies to
(Although, honestly, I'd probably have enjoyed Ferngully2000 - I mean Avatar - much, much more if someone had talked through the whole fucking thing.)
Nobody walks in front of me, spills their food on me, or complains that my 6'4" frame blocks their view.
No, I don't go to theaters any more.
