Cinema’s today have changed compared to the past, for example the prices have risen and the atmosphere or the idea behind going to the cinema has changed. Back in the past cinema going for me was a big event on a Saturday because school was all week and church was on a Sunday. Everyone got excited when news films came out and wanted to watch it in the cinema before anywhere else like DVD or TV. The prices were reasonable and everyone seemed excited about the whole cinema experience.
Today is a different story because watching a film in the cinema would only happen if we have the money and if someone else tells us that it’s worth watching in cinema. I won’t risk going to watch a badly done film because it cost money. The surround sound and the huge scene is what draw people to going to the cinema.
But now people seem to prefer downloading and watching films in the comfort of their home with a computer screen or buy a surround sound system and a big flat scene television with popcorn from the local shop. The popcorn was the traditional food to eat or hot dogs both with the fresh cinema taste, in contrast with today people believe cheaper is better and settle for the DVD with cheap snacks. The atmosphere for cinema going has changed will it ever be the same?
