    Three words for you if you're in a city fortunate enough to have one: Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. They take their movies seriously, and not only do they talk the talk, they walk the walk when it comes to the experience. Good projection, good sound and no qualms about booting the disruptive people out:



    Here's their entire collection of Don't Talk PSAs (some contain non-G-rated language): CLICKY

    YES!!! - these guys are my new heroes! I'm gonna remember them next time I wanna have a good theater experience. Dallas is only an hour or two away.

    Now I'm wondering if they are hiring. . . . Wish I had the capital to open one here.

    Replace your blu-ray player with a “smart” one that connects to the internet via hard wire or WiFi. Download the Netflix/Amazon Video/YouTube etc etc app on it. Now you can watch streaming video in your home cinema. Another alternative is to replace the blu-ray player with the newest iterations of gaming systems like XBox or PlayStation. They all connect to the internet and allow for the download of said apps.

    BUT, hard media is usually the most dependable and tends to offer the best picture and sound. No worries about internet connection speed, etc. That is becoming much less an issue but still.

    It's not an older age thing, a "get off my lawn" scenario. Public rudeness has escalated dramatically. In movie theaters, it appears that people no longer understand the difference between a public space and their own living room. They're watching a movie - which they mostly do at home - so they act exactly as they would at home. Loud interjections, horsing around et al. Now add the coup de grace of cell phones ... a perfect storm of self-centered rudeness.

    My size 10 boots are often poised at the back of the head of the idiot in front who turns his phone on during a movie, distractig everyone and taking us out of the movie. I'll be fair - even though I like watching previews, if you need to check text, insta, FB, Twitter or whatever before the movie starts - I'll grant you that. Once that movie starts though - take it outside, or turn it off....

    Yeah, we've already got all of that. Our Sony Blu-ray has a lot of streaming apps. However, I prefer our Roku media device for accessing Netflix. It also does a better job of accessing our music stored on our NAS.

    Oh, we're connected, baby. :)

    This is what happens when a society puts the rights of the individual above the rights of the society. The worthy tenants of freedom, individualism, and self-reliance become self-centredness and egoism. People come to believe that each individual’s life belongs to himself and he has an inalienable right to live it as he sees fit, no matter how rudely he behaves.

    So if you stream, no need to wait until a movie comes out on blu-ray. The only reason I went into the replace your blu-ray player post. Sorry if I missed a detail.

    How can I stream something before it's released for purchase? Movies come out on Blu-ray long before they get to Netflix.

    Many movies don’t ever come out on Netflix. Just saying you can get new release movies a lot quicker than Blu-Ray. Or just wait til the Blu-ray is released

    And I'm just asking. How?? Are you talking about pirated copies?
