Nope.  The last movie I saw was Madagascar 3 in 2012, before that Wall-E in 2008, and before that it was 1997 . . . Bean.

The reason(s) is simple.  When the kids were little, we just didn't bother because, well, you know, kids.  They can't really sit still that long, bathroom breaks, etc.  When it was date night, the last thing I wanted to do was sit in silence in a movie theater where you don't even acknowledge each other.  We tried going more often as the kids grew, but "people" got in the way.  They are on their freaking phones, they don't stay in their seat, they kick the back of your freakin' seats, and they TALK -- all the freakin' time!  Ugh.  I'm not paying that kind of money to be aggravated.  We watch from home!
Right before I die, I'm going to swallow a bag of popcorn kernels.  My cremation is going to be EPIC!

We go whenever there is a new Star Wars or Harry Potter / Fantastic Beasts movie out, for sure. That's a given LOL!  Other than that, it's a case by case basis. The kids went yesterday to see The Incredibles 2 because I needed a quiet afternoon at home and was willing to pay for it ROFL!!! Image

Oh I should add that we NEVER buy munchies at the theater. That's what giant mom purses are for! We go to Rite Aid and stock up on the dollar candy and smuggle it in like Han Solo ImageImage

Nope. Last movie I saw was with my BFF - 50 Shades of Grey. Like Carrie, I can't get comfortable and I DESPISE the kids who are on their darn phones and won't quit talking. SSSSSHHHHHHHHHH....

During the summer, I can take advantage of the discount movies that are often offered.  

Yesterday, we saw Skyscraper for $5.00 with $5.00 for a popcorn/soda.  

On vacation, in Myrtle Beach, we saw Ocean's 8 and The Book Club for $5.25 each.  My friend bought a large popcorn/drink, and it was $17.00!!!!!!!

DD (17yo) has been enjoying the $1.00 kids movies.  She saw a Charlie Brown movie and Ferdinand so far this summer.

Nope - too expensive here and I just seem to fall asleep when the lights dim and it's cold......  I think the last movie we saw in the theater was Angels and Demons in 2009....
We like to wait on them to come out on Redbox, Netflix or Amazon Prime.

We don’t go that often either!
But we just took the grandkids to see Incredibles 2, also.  Thanks to the points on out Disney card we got in for free.  It’s all so darn expensive.

Depends on what it is - Star Wars/Bond/Star Trek/Avengers we usually go, but I haven't even seen Han Solo yet :)  Last thing I went to see was Book Club with some girlfriends - I laughed all through the movie but one of the other ladies got kicked in the back of the seat the whole time - UGH!  So yeah I'm getting to where I can just wait.  We may have to come up with something else to do; the four of us usually have dinner and movies but we may be having to drop the movie part.  I think we are going to try to see Christopher Robin so we will see how that goes.  Very rarely do I buy anything at the movie theater; not a fan of pop, love popcorn but it has to be well doused in butter and now I get heartburn from that LOL.

I took the kids to see Incredibles 2 but DH and I rarely go on dates.   Babysitter is $10/hr.  The kids stayed with my mom a few weeks ago.  DH and I went to see a double feature then of Solo and Deadpool 2.  We like all the action/Star Wars/comic book flicks.

We sometimes go to weekday movies and get a senior discount.  Then we'll go out to an early dinner.

Not so much. Maybe once a year.    Actually went to see A Wrinkle In Time couple months ago.   Very disappointing    Does not honor the book at all.    And do have plans to go see Christopher Robin next month so a very busy movie year for me.   
Best thing about watching movies at home, the pause button, bathroom very close by, and you can multitask while watching!

You sound like me - we  def go if it's Star Wars or Harry Potter related. Han Solo was good :) I would like to see Christopher RObin but that is not DH's type of movie.

I agree! We very rarely go and usually wait until we can watch at home. The last one we went to was in Jan 2016 - a Star Wars movie and went at first showing of the day.  Can't believe the prices for everything! I usually bring 2 small bottle of water in my handbag.

I go about once a year, generally for the Star Wars or Star Trek movies, but we did not see Han Solo. I would like to see the new Mamma Mia movie and also Crazy Rich Asians, both of which come out later this summer. Maybe I will go with my Mom.

It's been at least 10  years since I saw a movie in the theater.  Love all the Star Wars and action hero movies but I'm very patient.  I know my son will buy them when they come out on DVD.  I'm anxious to see Solo.  But I can wait.  Not paying $8 for a bucket of popcorn when I can make my own here for 20 cents.  LOL!
