There's much to be said for the communal experience of watching a film in public, although it has its drawbacks too. Some of these problems are alleviated at Village Gold Class and Hoyts La Premiere, where the benefits don't end with the comfy seats and waiter service. It also diminishes your chances of being saddled next to a noisy patron who smells like popcorn and keeps checking their mobile.
And of course if the movie isn't doing it for you, you can always hoe into a hotdog or pudding and have a glass of wine. In fact the Gold Class/La Premiere experience is perfect for those 2 hour plus epics that Hollywood directors are so fond of making these days.
To be sure, such luxury comes at a price, although tickets are cheaper outside of peak times. Its definitely worth treating yourself to occasionally, and makes a great gift idea.
