All of the first 5. Our local theater is $4 for seniors (over age 60) so we go there frequently. Watch some movies on Amazon Prime and occasionally will buy one from Amazon, Google (via Chromecast) or Dish.

Honestly, it is about 90% Netflix or Amazon. Occasionally I will rent a movie from Amazon (once or twice a year). Maybe once or twice a year go to a theater. We have a huge collection of DVDs from back in the day. I will watch one if I get an urge to watch a move that I can't find on Netflix or free Amazon Prime.

I didn't check watching on cable TV even though I have that available. It is rarely convenient to watch a movie that way. I guess I could look through and schedule to record a movie but I mostly don't bother.

Also, there is no option for those who don't like watching movies.

I have a blu-ray rental agreement with Netflix because I think the movies look and sound better than streaming. Lately, I have also added a rental agreement with a company that rents 4K discs (really nice!) since I recently bought a 4K TV and replaced my old blu-ray player with a 4K blu-ray player.
