Most of us would like to watch movies in a dark setting. But my mother, who is a very health conscious individual, told me that watching in the dark will have a negative effect on my eyes. I still watch in the dark, but I would like to know whether there is some grain of truth to what my mother told me.

The ideal home theater experience is that a room should be dark, but with enough illumination to allow people move around freely. I don't really think there would be any effect to your eyes but again, your mother is just being cautious, which isn't a bad thing per se.

I understand what you mean about being cautious, but sometimes I think my mother is becoming paranoid about watching movies in the dark. I think the lack of research regarding this matter might mean that the eyes aren't really affected when watching in the dark.

I don't like it when a room is too dark, just as a matter of preference. Have you ever tried to walk into a dark room and ended up struggling to see? As drake says, the idea is to have just enough light, to enable people to move around in the room, with ease.

You both have a point walking in a dark room. But when we are watching a film, then there would be light coming from the TV or the projecture. So I don't think there is a problem walking in a dark room while watching.
