    5. Favourite cinema in all of the world?

    I love my little arthouse one in my city that miraculously has survived. But admittedly the screen is small and it's very worn out. As of comfort and viewing nothing can compare to some of the multiplex cinemas I went to in US. Perfect grading, huge comfortable seats... really fantastic compared to what I'm used to.
