I've been seeing a lot of movies lately. It costs a lot to take just me and the kids to a matinee, let alone all four of us. It costs more in fact than to buy the DVD when it comes out. When I realized that, I understood instantly why so many people buy DVDs--it's cheaper than going to the movies.

But I love seeing a movie in the theater. I have favorite seats. There's the magic of the previews and the tension that builds as the lights go down. That's worth a lot.

So I'll stick with my pattern of seeing the big movies in the theater and getting most of the others from the library. I'd rather pay to see a movie in the theater than wait and buy it and see it only on the small screen.

Great idea. Sometimes its fun to host a "Movie Night" with the kids or maybe some friends and buy or make some snacks or H'ordeurves and rent a highly anticipated DVD and make a night out of it. That's a great way to save money and still have the fun! Keep up the great blogging!

Love borrowing movies from the library. Cheap and local!

another thought on movies...sometimes i buy a movie from a garage sale for anywhere from 50 cents to 2.00, then after we watch it, we donate it to our local library, this is a extremely cheap way to enjoy and recycle a movie...of course you might have to settle for movies that are older...

How about joining a film rental service like LoveFilm or NetFlix? That way you can watch films at home without acquiring new stuff.
