O.P. Cinema VS Downloads
Some people say they prefer to download movies / buy DVDs (or copies).. because the movies are expensive. So here's my question:

Would you go more to the movies if it was cheaper, or even free?

I already go to the cinema a lot and I would go probs the same amount of times even if it was cheaper.. Still, I sometimes download movies and stuff because its  "comfortable" to see them at home, or even invite some friends over..

So what's your excuse?

EDIT: Note that this is not in Poll Center. I had to edit poll (and consequently reset votes) because I had put two "NO"

Well, tbh, I go to the cinema if it's a good film, but if it's a really good film I'll... aquire, a copy of it to watch again and maybe rip to a DVD. If it was cheaper it would make no difference to the amount of times I actually went.

If my download speed was faster... :P

But I go to the cinema for films I really want to see, others I can't afford ;p

Sometimes I d/l, sometimes wait 'till parents buy DVD or it comes onto Sky Movies.

Cinema is better, it's a social occasion. I wouldn't go on my own. If I wanted to watch a film suited more for me, I would watch a DVD :).

The Cinema's in Amsterdam can't get any cheaper tbh :P, I'm paying 17,50 a month to see an unlimited amount of movies...

So I almost never download movies, only if I really want to see one that isn't in the theater anymore and can't find it in any rental places or stores.
