Seems like a lot of the comments on reddit hate it. Personally I love it. Its not all that much more expensive for 2 people to go the movies. I assume I would be able to pause the movie or rewind 10 seconds if I missed something. And the seating in my house is way better than the theatres around here.
Also itd be great for families with kids. No babysitter, you can buy cheap snacks at the store beforehand or order pizza or something. I 100% see the appeal.
Yeah, if you are not alone then this would be a great option. It is definitely cheaper and more convenient. Plus the food and beverages will be better.
