By using subjective personal introspection, this paper describes the consumption of movies as a holistic experience. After reviewing the current literature, the author is discussing the consumption of movies as a holistic lived experience. He then provides rich evidence by describing his personal lived experience in the consumption of the recently released movie Pride & Prejudice. The introspective data suggest that a number of different factors contribute to the enjoyment of the movie, which include a) the consumed media format, b) the engagement with the movie and its components, c) the individual consumption context, d) the social consumption context, e) the atmosphere during consumption, f) the collection of movie-related memorabilia and g) the intertextuality between the movie experience and the consumer’s personal life experience.
