I really enjoy the ritual of going to the theater. Something about the process of going somewhere specifically to see a film, participating in a large group of people lining up and filing in, then the lights lower and the film is going. Nothing can stop it, no pausing for a pee break or for some douche to explain the backstory or argue some fine point. I think I will always enjoy the whole inconvenient procedure.
There are also some special theaters, some of them are very elaborate architecturally. One theater plays an old wurlitzer before major screenings. The Alamo drafthouse shows fascinating footage before films and does a spectacular job curating special films and events.
There are times I just want to put on a low grade movie and not pay much attention to it, but if I'm in the mood for a special experience going out to the movies can really fit the bill.
