Big Screen to Small Screen Movie Watching

Movies, Screening Room, Kingston Family Fun World, Empire Theatre, Movies in the SquareHarvey and I had a great time at Kingston Family Fun World this past Friday.  We got there early enough to do a few laps on the go-kart course, grab ourselves some popcorn at the concession and then hunker down for a couple of summer blockbusters.

As I mentioned above, different moods can certainly affect this decision but I think, if I had to choose my absolute favourite way to see a movie, the drive-in wins hands down.  There’s something very nostalgic and campy about the whole experience that I just love, and that I think goes hand in hand with the movie-going experience of entering another world for a brief period.  Tell us what your favourite way is to make that escape and why.
