It depends on the movie. I won't pay to see any twice. I'm fortunate to be married to the cable guy so we get sweet perks, like free ppv :)

A few I can watch over & over -
The Green Mile
Shawshank Redemption
The Cowboys
Forest Gump
Pulp Fiction

Haha I have over 200+ movies in my dvd case. And I watch them over and over and over....but that's because theres not alot to do here. And yeah ill go more than once to a theater to watch a movie but only if its like a really good one, such as the Sherlock holmes movies and war horse haha, and ill probably see The Hobbit at least twice while its in theaters. Its like our main form of entertainment here.

I'm a bit of a movie fanatic so there are times when I'll go to the theater and watch a movie twice, but it has to be absolutely amazing to do that. I watched "The Dark Knight" twice in theaters just because it was absolutely awesome to see it on the big screen.

But more commonly, I will buy a DVD whenever it comes out and watch it as many times as I want at home. I have some old movies that I've seen probably hundreds of times but they still move me to tears every time I watch them. "Phenomenon" and "Powder" are 2 of them. Then there are others that I can quote almost word for word and they are still hilarious; "Spaceballs" and "Robin Hood: Men in Tights" and "The Ringer"...among others.

Add Forest Gump to my list. The bit of all the uses of "shrimp" that Bubba does is classic!

We have what I call 'Amish' TV - no cable, no satellite, no large outdoor antennae - rabbit ears on top of the box. If I did not enjoy watching movies over and over I'd be screwed! GOOD movies are like a mini vacation, just because I've seen the Grand Canyon once doesn't mean I don't want to go back

For me, it really depends on the movie. If it's one I love, I'll watch it a million times. But lately there haven't been any movies that catch my interest. I have a friend who can see a movie over and over and over again and still love it.
I enjoyed the Avengers [saw it twice because I was so tired the first time that I fell asleep through part of it], but it's such a long movie [for me at least] that I don't really want to see it again anytime soon. Watched both of the Sherlock Holmes movies recently as well and I could probably handle watching them once more, but again I don't need to see them three times in a row.

Well, I suppose this answers my question...it is just me. I lived once w/o TV or "movies" for years, either's absence never entered my mind until I would see TV in town. I am not a real "movie person", but really enjoy watching a great movie - once. I want to be entertained when I sit down to watch a movie, which is admittedly rare, and is probably why it would irritate the heck out of me to watch the same one - twice. So, your answers have made me realize - its just me!!! I guess I need therapy.

Be that as it may, the idea of kids paying to watch the same movie twice still gets the better of the penny pincher in me.

Yeah, I have no problem watching a movie a thousand times over if it's one I love. Ever since I was very young, my favorite movie has been "Labyrinth" and every time mom asked what movie I wanted to rent, I immediately grabbed it. Now, at 29, I really cannot tell you how many times I have watched it.

Often times when watching movies multiple times, each time I pick up on something I missed when previously watching it. Therefore the movies always stay fresh for me. :)

Of course, next to "Labyrinth" the second most watched thing by me is the television show "Friends." I own the series and have watched it enough to quote scenes and to notice when the reruns on TV are edited differently. :)

I'll watch movies over and over if I have them on DVD/VHS. I couldn't tell you how many times I've seen my favorites. My whole family are movie lovers.

That being said, trips to the movie theatre are rare treats... maybe only 2-3 times a year. $10+ before popcorn and Coke is just nuts to me. I'd rather wait another few months for it to come out on DVD (or better yet one more year and pull it out of the $5 bin at Wal Mart), buy it one time and watch it as many times as I want. I went more often when I was away at school -- there was a little one screen theatre just off campus that had $6 evening showings. I can't imagine going to see the same movie in theatres twice or more... my mother might shoot me for wasting money if I did that, lol.
