Giving up on the Theater

Today I planned to go see Django Unchained at the local theater at our mall. I got in the long line of cars and started looking for a parking space. There were none. As I circled the lot a couple times I thought about how it was actually kind of nice outside and there were 30 other things I could be doing besides sitting in a theater.

By the second loop I had talked myself out of it. If I drove to the back of the lot I could get a spot, but by the time I walked in and got my ticket the movie would almost be started. I left.

I am finding it difficult to find the time or motivation to go to the theater anymore, and this makes me sad. I'll just wait for it to come out on DVD. It is just easier... and cheaper... and cleaner... and more comfortable. I am one of those people now. The cinema is dying and I am not willing to do anything about it.
