The only good reason to go to a movie theatre anymore is for the pop corn, change my mind.

Okay, the previews are not bad. They are actually sometimes better then the movie you are seeing. It's the advertisements before the previews that go on for too long.

In the good old times of 486 you could even take part in the movie.

Spoiler

 

It's a pity that since all those directxes and opengls it's now hardly possible.

UPD.
But no. Unexpectedly it works.
tried the DesktopToys with VLC, and it has successfully made holes, splashes, and flames.

So, we still can take part in movie action with 6-barrel minigun, flamethrower, banana-hen-fish, saw, and other tools.

Can they do this in a movie theater? Unlikely.

Try saying "no" to a girlfriend/wife who wants to go out for a show instead of watching movies on TV at home - That'll rapidly change your mind

"Babe... I love ya, but I rather stay home because I'm tired."

What happens next? Does she give me a death stare? Or pressure or nag me until I do? Or just go without me?

Realistically? I would go anyway. If I chose her then I want to spend time with... no matter what Im doing.

That's why I was so picky in mates. She'd rather stay home just like me.

Sole reason why you'd go to a movie theatre is because you're spending time with other people, of course.

Other than that these days you can watch films from elsewhere - and it's more often that what I want to watch are so old it's no longer in theatres.

Popcorn might be a point - caramels being rather difficult without a machine - but honestly it's overpriced anyway, I can make lots of popcorn at home if I want to.

Pop-corn crunchy noise

Don't get me started. I have a TV a blu-ray player, a microwave with Orvile Reddenbacher, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney Plus, HBO. Unfortunately, my sister is the best at that noise.... ;.;
