    I never went to the theater so many times in one month than I did last month. Three times for X2 and twice for Matrix Reloaded, Down With Love, and Finding Nemo.

    I saw Pulp Fiction a half dozen or so times theatrically, besides that I don't think I've seen any single title more than once. Certainly nothing since I got my first DVD player back in '98. Nowdays I only go to the movies if I'm on a date and I'm looking for some cheap entertainment.

    Once for each, which was more than enough.

    A lot of these I didn't have to pay for because the theater I used to work at still let me in for free even after I had left there.

    LOTR - FOTR - 3x
    LOTR - TTT - 2x
    Star Wars Ep1 - 2x (I had to make sure it wasn't wrong expectations)

    Once for everything else, exept Die Another Day which I never watched.

    The only other movies I saw more than once: Gladiator - 2x (same reason as Ep1) and Saving Private Ryan.

    I don't think I could do more than 3x.

    LOTR - FOTR (4)
    LOTR - TTT (4)
    XMEN (1)
    X2 (1 but plan to go again)
    Matrix (2)
    Matrix Reloaded (3)
    Die Another Day (1, which was 1 too many)
    Star Wars Ep1 (2)
    Star Wars Ep2 (3, 1 was DLP)
    Spiderman (3)
    DareDevil (1, which was 1 too many, and I agree that this is no BO king)

    I see many films I enjoy more than once at the theater, and not just "big" films. I went to see City of God a 2nd time earlier this year.

    I have a pretty nice front projection home theater, but its still not the same.

    LOTR - FOTR - 1 (Watched it again a lot of times in DVD)
    LOTR - TTT - 1
    XMEN - 0 (Watched it once in DVD)
    X2 - 1
    Matrix - 1 (Watched it again a lot of times in DVD)
    Matrix Reloaded - 1
    Die Another Day - 1
    Star Wars Ep1 - 1 (Have'nt completed watching it even once again in DVD)
    Star Wars Ep2 - 1 ( Watched it again once in DVD)

    DareDevil - 1

    Okay, given the chance, free time & once I run out of great films to watch at home or in theaters, I will watch City of God or Raising Victor Vargas or Finding Nemo again.

    I might go to Atlanta, Ga just to watch in theaters for the first time what I consider the greatest film of all-time, Lawrence of Arabia.

    There are just too many great films waiting to be seen for the first time. "So many movies, so little time". [​IMG]
