When watching a movie or listening to music, are you mindful of the lighting? Do you think it helps create a mood, or do you not even think about that?

I like mine low.

Well, I prefer not to have any lights on, especially when watching a movie. Yes, it helps to create the mood plus I am always mindful of lighting because a lot of light can cause a distraction.

Sometimes it can help to create a mood if the lights are off, but I suppose it depends on the movie for me. If I'm watching a comedy, I would find it weird to watch in the dark (unless I was at a movie theater of course). Watching an intense horror or thriller is better in the dark.

I had never looked at it from this angle and yes, it makes more sense to watch thriller/horror movies, under low light. I think the lighting of the room would also depend on the color and light effects in the movie?
