Very isolated incidents only here in Central NJ, but we choose our theater carefully. Our "local" theater has stadium seating, fresh popcorn, reasonable prices (by comparison with other theaters in our area) and a good movie selection. They also have a "club" that rewards us with discounts on concessions, free tickets, free sodas, etc. based on frequency of purchases...
I quite enjoy going to our local movie theater - it is an exp. I can't afford to duplicate at home,and the kids (10 and 3) love the movies as well.
