I know what you’re thinking. Another article about British actor Robert Pattinson, aren’t there enough already? Well, yes there are, but I promise you this one is different. In fact, this article will tell you all about the exciting world of movie nights that Pattinson and his fellow movie lovers enjoy so much.
Movie Night At The Cafe Momus
Pattinson started dating movie producer David Heyman back in 2010. Since then they’ve been inseparable, often seen cosying up at movies festivals and premieres around the world. (They even had lunch together to celebrate the premiere of their latest film.) Now they regularly attend movie screenings and Q&As, meeting fans and actors while enjoying sumptuous food and fantastic films. They even had a movie night at their pad in New York City. It’s fair to say they’ve become experts on the matter, and have started an organization called The RPJ Club, which stands for “Robert Pattinson Jewellery”. (If you’d like to join the club, you can use the code “PATTINSON1” to get a £20 voucher for the jewellery store Harrods. You can also find out more at their website.)
Why Are Movie Nights So Popular?
First, let’s remember that movies are a timeless way to entertain and be entertained. They can provide escapism, be it from the stresses of daily life or the problems of a troubled world. Second, going to the movies isn’t limited to humans, as recent studies have shown that animals share our passion for films as well. (In fact, one group of researchers went as far as to say that animals view films in a very similar way to humans do, which is why it’s often so difficult to determine exactly what is portrayed in certain movies.) Third, as we’ve established above, going to the movies isn’t just about the film itself, but about meeting new friends and making connections. These are crucial in today’s world. And last but not least, the whole process of going to the movies is exciting, from the moment you decide to go to the cinema to see a certain film, to finding out what all the fuss is about and being able to discuss it with the people sitting next to you. Add to that the fact that it’s a great way to connect with the world, and you start to see why many people call it a “night out”. (As if attending a live play wasn’t exciting enough, finding out what happens afterwards is even more so.)
What Is A Cinema Society Membership?
If you’re not familiar, the Cinema Society is an organization that provides members with a variety of benefits, including the annual movie magazine Event Cinema and the occasional luxury retail experience at movie theatres. (If you’d like to become a member, click here.)
The nice thing about Event Cinema is that it provides you with a huge variety of movies to choose from, covering all genres and occasions. If you want to read the latest news and reviews on cinema, as well as see all the upcoming releases, this is the perfect way to do it. Plus, if you’re a member of the Society, you get access to special offers and discounts from time to time, particularly for upcoming films. (You can also find this in the FAQ section of the website.)
As for the retail experience, getting a goodie bag filled with goodies from the cinema itself is a fantastic way to end a romantic evening or birthday celebration. What’s not to love?

The Evolution Of Movie Nights
If you’re a regular cinema goer, you’ll know that movie nights aren’t exactly a new phenomenon, having been around for decades. However, with the rise of social media and websites like Reddit, forums like r/moviesandtheatre, and Twitter, it’s become clear that audiences are now connecting with movies in a whole new way. (Websites like r/moviesgive people the chance to connect with others who share the same love for movies, as well as provide them with a variety of content ranging from news and reviews to quizzes and even competitions.)
Back in the ‘70s and ‘80s, going to the movies was an activity reserved mainly for adults, with children spending their time in front of the TV. These days, thanks to devices like Google Chromecasts and Apple TV, families often get together to attend movies, with adults often spending time socializing with other adults while kids happily sit and watch a film. (Yes, some adults still prefer to watch films by themselves, but for the most part, adults are engaging with movies in a whole new way, particularly online.)
From a simple dinner-and-a-movie to an entire evening spent at the movies, attending a movie night with a friend or family member is popular worldwide. (In fact, as we’ve established above, animals share our love for films as well, so the whole process of going to the movies isn’t exactly reserved for humans.) It’s clear that movie-going has changed, and will continue to do so in the coming years.
