How many movies do you see in the theatre per year?

I see a lot of movie related threads on these boards which leads me to believe a good portion of you go to the movies often. I wanted to find out just approximately how often you folks go to see movies in theatres over the course of a year.

Also, what gets you to go to the theatre? Does a movie look particularly good, does someone drag you along, or is it just something to do when ya feel like getting out of the house for a while? And what do you enjoy the most (or least) about being in the theatre?

I personally am one of the 1-5 times per year kind of guy. I don't know what it is about movies, but I have trouble sitting through them. I dont have a problem sitting and playing a PC game for 8 hrs in a row, but when it comes to movies I start to think of things I'd rather be doing. I suppose it's just the unoriginal plots and stories that keep me from seeing most movies. I really enjoyed movies like The Matrix, The Sphere, LotR series, and the Star Wars movies (probably the latter two just because I'm a fan of the series). These and a few other flicks are some of the select few that I myself choose to go and see. Most times when I go to the theatre, I get dragged along by a female friend. I never buy any theatre food because I have food allergies that stop me from eating just about anything considered "normal" social food, and I'm not too fond of sitting in a crowded areas.

I think for this year I'll go see Episode III and leave it at that, unless something really interesting comes along and spurs me to venture to the theatre once more.

So how about you?

around five, I voted 1-5, I enjoy the theatrical experience and go whenever there seems a worthwhile movie to see (or it's free)

In the past I saw, I think, around 5-10 a year. This year however I've already seen quite a few (5 ish) and I think that trend will continue so I voted for 10-20.

RotS Wednesday night/Thursday morning - I'm quite excited.

I see about 4 a year. One a season, maybe none in the fall and 2 in the summer. Movies are expensive, and they take up a lot of time. Two big minuses in my book.

I see one or two a year ... maybe. I hate being violated in the wallet at the refreshments counter. I'd rather pop in a DVD at home where I can lie naked on my own couch and watch - if I so please - and eat my own food.

I will probably make the effort to see Land of the Dead in the theatre this summer - but that's about it. Episode III can wait until it's out on DVD - I absolutely cannot stand the noisy rabble that turn up for films with huge fan followings.

I've virtually stopped going all together. You always end up with some noisy crowd ruining the experience, and I can't stand people eating in cinemas (why everything is super crunchy and comes in the most noisy bags ever I'll never know). The only place I go is this old deserted place, where you end up with 5 people in the entire audience...

Thank god for DVD's is all I say...

I rarely go to the movie theatres, so it's about 2 or 3 in a good year. Uusually I go for the DVD or not watch that movie at all.

I usually watch 3,4 or 5 movies a week.
About 12 to 20 movies each month ,except for july and august (1 or 2/month)
For a year I could watch from 150 to 200 movies.I could count since I have kept all my tickets for a few years.

I alway want to go see movies but never do. In highschool I went to see Scary Movie2 with my girlfriend and realized the last movie I had seen in theater was Scary Movie 1. Might go see Hitchhiker's today if it is raining.

I wondered who had voted 100+. I figured they were lying, but wow! You must really like movies. Why not in July or August though?

I usually can't in july and august because I take long vacations abroad.That said,I try to watch one or two movies while travelling.
Also, what gets you to go to the theatre?
For entertainment.
Does a movie look particularly good, does someone drag you along, or is it just something to do when ya feel like getting out of the house for a while?
I choose to watch it or not according to the story and the theme.I organize what I am going to watch and with who.
And what do you enjoy the most (or least) about being in the theatre?
I don't like the crowds,small screens/rooms.
I like good stories,historical movies,fight scenes.
