Top Five Reasons to Go to the Movies
Sure, you can pretty much watch any movie on demand from some source or another (legal or otherwise) in the privacy of your own home these days. But if you’ve completely eliminated the traditional movie theater from your roster of things to do when you leave the house, you’re missing out on what separates films from television shows: their larger-than-lifeness.
