There are several reasons I'd go to a cinema to see a film, but one stands out. It's the scene in "Rear Window", a Hitchcock film, where Raymond Burr's character finally realizes that Jimmy Stewart's character has been watching him, and knows what's happened to his wife. As the camera takes a close shot through the window of Burr's darkened apartment, you see the glow of Burr's cigarette as he's sitting on his sofa, watching Stewart. I'm sure there are home theater systems that can make sure that scene works, but someone will have to let me know about it.

I also think the viewing experience is heightened in a full theater, no doubt about it. I can remember specific films I saw in a packed house and it was vastly different than the ones I saw where there were only a few dozen viewers. It's true the current arrangement needs to expand and improve, but I think there could always be a place for it.
