Many of us will be watching the Olympics on television at home. But how does this differ from actually being there?
We listen to music at home and might watch a concert on television. How does this differ from hearing music live at a concert?
In the same way, many of us watch films on DVD at home. But how does this experience differ from watching a film in the cinema?
One answer to these questions might be that in the case of actually being at an event surrounded by other people makes us react differently to what we see and what we feel.
Have you ever been to a sporting event? A concert? We think you have probably been to the cinema.
So what do you think are the differences between the experiences of watching something at home and of actually being in an environment surrounded by other people? In particular, think about the experience of watching a film on the big screen as opposed to at home on television.
