Well [Star Wars] has gotten me back into the theater at least once a year.
Charlie's comment triggered this thread.
Ha, I was the same for most of my adult life, once a year, if that much. I never had cable TV and have never used a DVR.
Now that I'm not working I'm the King of Free Time and have hitch-hiked to theaters to see "fun"/roller-coaster thrills/sci-fi movies like:
Blade Runner 2049 (twice)
Wonder Woman (twice)
SW:TLJ (this week, partly spoiled after I unwisely skimmed a negative user review)
Murder on the Orient Express
Close Encounters 40th
I also feel obligated to support historical films in theaters:
Darkest Hour (future)
The Post (future)
The gameplan was to watch lotsa movies on streaming services like Netflix/HBO/etc. but so far I've only watched a grand total of two (Wizard of Lies/DeNiro and SW:R1). Why? Too busy entertaining/terrorizing several online forums and watching 3-4 hours per day of MSNBC news shows and infotainment shows like The Today Show.
How about you - and also does watching movies motivate you to buy the MP (yes, almost always for me)?
