Watching films has been a constant part of pop culture for over a century. Deciding between watching a film in the cinema or on a DVD or Blu-Ray or similar device, is a matter of your own preference. Each one has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Watching in a cinema is an entirely different experience then watching on a DVD. A cinema has a very large screen, and a top-of-the-line sound system that provides the viewer with a very engaging experience. It exudes a very immersing experience that fully captures the viewer’s attention. Cinemas also usually sell any items or food you might usually need.
The downside to watching in a cinema involves privacy. People often talk during the film and can sometimes leave their cell phones and other devices on, which may disrupt your experience. Some people are also not comfortable in a cinema, especially if the entire cinema is packed with people. One other issue is that most cinemas only allow a one-time viewing. There are exceptions as some cinemas allow multiple viewings.
A DVD provides the privacy that the cinema does not. You can watch a DVD anywhere that has a DVD player, such as in the comfort of your own home. As it is compact, you can take it anywhere and also watch the film anywhere. If you have a laptop or portable DVD player, your options are even wider. And seeing as you own the DVD, you can watch it as many times as you want, and as often as you want. However, your experience depends on your own entertainment system. If you have weak outdated televisions or sound systems, then your experience will greatly differ from the cinema.
Choosing between watching a film in a cinema and on a DVD depends on your preferences. The cinema provides a more exciting experience but lacks privacy and comfort. A DVD provides that comfort and privacy, yet may not deliver the same experience. Either option is certainly viable, and in the end, can be equally pleasurable, depending on your own preferences.
