People are lucky to have an opportunity to choose the way they want to spend their free time, for example, whether to go to the cinema or to the theatre. Some people are theatre admirers. Others suppose that nowadays theater is not as popular as cinema is. As for me, I would prefer to go to the cinema.
To my mind, cinema is more popular than theatre nowadays. I think one of the main reasons is that films are closer to the life of ordinary people and are easier for them to understand. In addition to this, tickets to the theatre are getting more and more expensive, thus many people cannot afford to buy them often.
My opponents would say that the popularity of theatre is increasing nowadays. I cannot agree with it. Cinema is still much more popular and it attracts the attention of more and more people.
