I'm assuming this means being locked in alone. There's no point in being stuck in a movie theater when I have absolutely no knowledge of how to work the equipment to watch a movie. Plus, a library will entertain me for a lot longer than a handful of movies and the couches are more comfy to sleep in!

Couches in a library?!??

hell yeah, couches in a library. when was the last time you went to one? my local library has all sorts of comfy things, granted, the theater chairs are pretty nice too, but even if you knew how to work the projector, you've only got 12-36 hours worth of entertainment there,depending on the size of the theater.

If you are LOCKED in a movie theater, how you gonna get out to go to the bathroom and to get food or water? Those are not in the same room as the theater part!! Yeah I pick Library for sure!! lmao, technically speaking. ahahahah

So, I guess those that choose the movie theater didn't realize that the internet is readily available at the library.

I totally agree with that a full size screen and surround sound is better then a small screen plus the theater has drinks and snacks if u get the munchies

Movie theaters have only a certain amount of movies playing at a time, but libraries have hundreds of books so it's a no brainer fior me I choose library. Plus, I just love books.

Since we're speaking in hypotheticals, I'm going to assume the movies would be projected for me and so on, so I voted theater. However, the library would be just as good in my book (HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH :|), I literally (HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA MORE PUNS) could have voted either way.

You have thousands of books at the library and maybe 1 or 2 movies lying around in the theater.

Voting for Library. Our Library has a Cafe, computers, indoor and outdoor pool, indoor track above the basketball court, exercise room, and a few rooms to have meetings or birthday parties in. It also has dvds and cds. I like that it is never quiet. Sometimes there is even live music.

I picked movie theater. At least they got food if you get hungry. Besides doubt I'd be locked in for more then 24 hours. Probably less then that. Likely overnight. In which case I could have an unhealthy dinner, something to drink and then nap somewhere. That said odds of getting locked into either is small since even when doors are locked, you can usually open them from the inside. Plus there is always emergency exits.

Library, because I'd have no clue how to work any of the movie theater's machines and even if i did, I'd probably only be interested in watching one or two movies. So I'd rather be stuck in a library and read whatever I want.

If you're locked in a movie theatre who said that the movies will still be playing. At least in a library you have books to read.

I'VE BEEN LOCKED IN A MOVIE THEATRE MANY TIMES! I WORK AT ONE! YOU CAN'T WATCH ANY MOVIE ANY TIME LIKE YOU WOULD THINK SO IT WOULD BE BETTER TO BE LOCKED IN A LIBRARY BECAUSE THEN YOU COULD AT LEAST READ THE BOOKS. :)

Don't worry about getting hungry in the library. I have worked in libraries. Trust me, there is always food in the break room or employee lounge! Make a pot of coffee, pop some microwave popcorn and read uninterrupted all night long.

I see a lot of people saying movies because of food...

Most libraries now have a snack shop or Cafe in them so you would be able to get food. They also have a larger variety than most theaters who if you are lucky will have popcorn, candy, nachos, and maybe pizza or hot dogs. Where a library cafe will have salads, sandwiches, coffee, chip, and many other things. Some even have a kitchen in the back so you could cook your own mean instead of just having pre-made things.

You would not be limited to the number of movies you could watch, where libraries have thousands of movies as well as books and audio cds. And an internet connection.

Movie theater seats are uncomfortable and bolted to the floor. The library has couches that would be great to sleep on as well as being able to move the tables, chairs, and other furniture as needed.

So overall I'd say the library has more benefits than the movie theater.

It would be awesome if our library had a cafe :-) They don't even allow food and drink at ours! I know it's to protect the books and all but it would be easier to browse if I could bribe the kids with a snack lol.

I've never seen a library with all of those. The ones I've been in don't allow food anywhere, although I've mostly been at university libraries. They probably have vending machines in a different part of the building, but in the library itself you're not allowed to have anything except water

considering the factors, EVERYONE who picked library would starve the death. That wouldn't be very fun.

I chose movie theater since they have food there and I won't starve. Plus most movie theaters have glass doors while libraries have concrete or wood doors, so escape would not be possible in a library. Plus most theaters also have arcades so that's another plus.

Seeing most of the comments, people are choosing movie theater because of the food, but MOST libraries I've seen do NOT have a cafe. In the Silicon Valley, there are only 2/3/4, think one's in PA and SF maybe and one in SJ.

I feel sorry for you and the two people who 'liked' your comment. None of you are very bright. How many times have you ever heard of someone starving to death in ONE night? Never? That's right! Our library is a pretty much a fishbowl. 4 sets of glass double doors.

You keep commenting on other people's comments how they turn off the computers and interwebz. Even if the movie theatre you get locked in has an arcade, are you going to have a pocket full of quarters?

You are going to be doing nothing but wandering around in the dark with soda and candy, unless you know how to work the popcorn machine and how to load movies into the projectors.

A library is a much better choice. You can read to your heart's content. They have comfy seating, and most that I've been to have at least one couch you could sleep on. There is a water fountain if you get thirsty. No food, but nobody starves to death in one night.

The question did not say how long you would be locked in which is why why Ninja said "considering the factors" at the very beginning of their comment and why I said "depending on how long I was locked in" in mine. It could be one hour or one month. It's pretty ignorant of you to call people names because you assume it would only be one day.

I picked library and no, I won't starve because Cedar Rapids Public Library downtown has a coffee shop that sells baked goods and sandwiches. haha! I could use computers, read books and even rent movie dvds. Plus, if I got really bored I could go play with the puppets at the kids puppet theater or leggos.

first and foremost, the movie theater is too fattening. I chose the library, because I get get lost in the kids section, the crafts section, and the medical section.

Someone at Swagbucks made a typo :p

I'd choose movie theater though. I personally enjoy movies more than books and depending on how long I was locked in, I have candy, popcorn, soda/pop/water,and other snacks/food to help survive.
