If cinemas have a special cubicle for those with small kids, it would be useful for people like me. Also, it won’t be a nuisance to others when kids start crying. Farasha Jabbar Some sort of a child-friendly arrangement where couples with children can attend and not ruin others’ experience. Zainub An option to order snacks from your seat with an indication to pick them up once they’re ready! Massage chairs would be nice too. Priyanka Wade Wider screens and better acoustics would be welcome. And what better way to watch a movie than uninterrupted – no nasty freezes, no glitches, no phones ringing and quiet kids. Ivy Soares I find the price of movie tickets is very high. While some movies are worth the price, others are not. The cost of the ticket should depend upon the movie rating and quality. I also think commercials should be stopped. After all, we are spending money to see the movie exclusively. Also, people should be warned not to talk or use phones during the movie. Rose Philip A proper temperature-controlled environment would make for a pleasant experience in a theatre. Often, the temperature is very low, making it extremely uncomfortable. I, in fact, make it a point to carry a jacket whenever I go for a movie. A little care from the management would not only leave the audience comfortable but also save the theatre energy costs. Hannah Marie James It’s time cinemas stop taking the audience to be ‘sitting ducks’, shooting all their advertisements at those who have no choice but to go through the experience. I would be happy to look at the ads, provided it was a choice I made. In reality my love for the movie is like bait that is used against me to not only charge me a decent sum of money (we are a family of four) but also to lead me into watching ads without any notice or incentive.
I would really appreciate it if the theatres began to indicate what time movies actually start so that the audience can make an informed choice. They can be incentivised to watch commercials by offering them a free tub of popcorn or a soft drink, depending on the number of commercials they sign up for! Anil George My dream cinema would have a supervised play area/activity centre on the premises so parents could drop off the kids there and enjoy the movie, resting assured that their kids are close at hand and safe. Also, it would be neat if we could order movie snacks from our seats and have it delivered to us without having to go to the food counter; something like those remotetype devices we find in airplanes, only these would have food and drink options instead.
