Technology has made movie-watching easier than ever. Whether by renting a film from a local store, watching a movie channel, or taping a show for later, couples are now able to share movies at home, where things can get much more intimate. A “dinner and a movie” date can just as easily take place in your living room as out on the town. For those who need to unwind from the hustle and bustle of life, that's a great advantage.
Home videos offer lots of benefits, such as:
You don't have to get all dressed up. In fact, you can watch in your PJs.
You can snack all you want while you watch.
If you need to take a bathroom break, you can stop the film and not miss anything.
When the movie is terrible, you don't feel as bad, because it didn't cost as much to rent it as it would have to see it in a movie theater.
You and your partner can do a lot of cuddling as you view the movie. One of the best times to “spoon” with your partner on the couch is while watching television.
Take the phone off the hook when you put on a video. No sense being interrupted unnecessarily. Prepare your favorite snacks and treats in advance so you can happily munch while you watch. If you imbibe, you can enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine as the movie progresses. What makes this all romantic is that you can relax and enjoy a quiet evening together, with or without kids. You watch on your timetable rather than the one set up by the theater. For big-time movie lovers, those Surround Sound devices with big-screen TVs make your home feel much more like the real thing.
