There was a time when people would do anything to watch a movie on big screens, but with the advent of wide screen technology, cinema has become less popular. People in those days would value their experience of going to cinema, however nowadays people have high tech surround systems, and wide screen, and view movies at home, which does not provide the same enjoyment as the cinema does.
A large number of people in United Kingdom visit cinemas on weekends to recreate, and to find solace from the hectic work routine. Some people are so crazy for cinemas that they would like to book the entire cinema for their families for cinema viewing. In UK, an average cinema can accommodate 300 people. Among these people, you will find many noisy people, people who make loud comments, and people who so often try to disturb your privacy by different means. The lack of privacy had been a great trouble for many cinemagoers, but not anymore.
For such reasons, cinema management have introduced private cinema viewing, which allows them to watch the movie only with their loved ones. This allows them to watch movie with people they know of in a nice private environment with friends, families, or business colleagues.
Prior to the introduction of home theatre system, private cinema viewing would cost a lot for people to book the entire hall. Gradually, as more cinemas started this option, and people reverted towards watching movies at home, cinemas decreased their charges, and attracted public for private cinema by offering discounted prices. Especially, if people do the booking in advance, they would get a good rate.
A dream date with your fianc, girlfriend, or wife would be to watch the entire movie in complete privacy in the cinema hall. This is because in public cinema viewing a large number of people are seated in one place that create disturbances during the movie, and not much fun is experienced if others are yawning, screaming, and talking.
While some people go to the cinema for recreational purposes, most of them also visit the cinema to watch their perfect cinema characters on big screens. This they cannot experience in their home theatre system, as on the big screen of the cinema, they see their stars up close.
For movie lovers, famous cinema characters are so important, and valuable that they can spend hundreds of pounds just to see one glimpse of them. The cinema screen has the wonderful characteristic that it provides you close to real time picture of the character on the screen. Although, you do not see your lovely character in reality on the screen, but your experience would never be much less seeing your beloved personality in front of you.
Cinema viewing provides the opportunity for people to see their favorite celebrities very closely, since these days it is hard to see them in public. They view their performance in a nice calm surrounding without any disturbances.
