I go alone to tons of movies πŸ™‚ Most of my good friends live a ferry ride or farther away, so whenever there’s a movie I want to see that I know Darling Husband won’t like, and none of my friends are available/in town, I just go on my own.

TBH there’s something I find super enjoyable about seeing a movie alone. I find I get a lot more immersed in the plot and cinematography if I’m not with anyone πŸ™‚

i have once or twice in my life gone to see a movie alone. i usually dont because there is always someone to go with!  but i am not against the idea.

Yup, it’s totally cool.  You can’t talk during a movie anyhow!  I went and saw Something Borrowed by myself last week.

I went to a movie alone once and it was totally liberating! It was when I first moved here and didn’t know anyone. Now I always have someone to go with. I should do it again soon, actually. It can be really fun!

Yep, I go all the time! I went to see Source Code on my own last Friday. It was awesome. Sometimes it’s just nice to not have to worry about being “on” for someone, and you can just sit and relax in a dark theater and not have anyone bother you for 2 hours. It’s pretty sweet.

I’d like to but FH never lets me! I think the last time I went alone I was 13 (The Horse Whisperer)

I have gone to the movies alone a lot.  I haven’t recently because going to the movies has just gotten so expensive!

I love going to the movies alone.  When there are things no one wants to see with me, i love having a quiet afternoon.  I get my popcorn and bring a book to read before it starts.  Going to the movies with other people is preferable, but every once in a while a movie alone is great.

Bridesmaids was SO GOOD.  I can’t wait to see it again.

I go out to eat, to the movies, shopping…I do pretty much everything alone. :/
Most of my friends are either in a different city, or married, and we don’t get together much.

It used to bother me…now it’s just “meh.”

Bridesmaids was HILARIOUS though! I saw it yesterday! πŸ™‚

@windycitygirl22:  It was ok but not great, imo.  I read the book a while ago, and what makes the book good, the complexity and history of the characters, the movie just lacks.  Maybe if I hadn’t read the book I would have liked it, I don’t know.

I love to go to the movies alone – it’s actually one of my favorite things to do if I have an afternoon/evening to myself.  My husband will only go see art house/foreign/really well-reviewed movies, and I love to go see rom coms, chick flicks, whatever.  Like previous posters have said, it’s kind of liberating – you go see whatever you want, whenever you want, sit wherever you want, read a book before it starts, get as many snacks as you want, don’t have to worry about anyone immediately asking you what you thought when the credits roll…  When I was younger I worried that everyone was looking at me like “doesn’t she have anyone to go to the movies with?” but now I can tell you for certain that no one looks at you and no one cares.  :o)

All the time. I have no shame and even if I did I have no pride. I go out to eat alone too. I don’t care, I think I’m awesome and love spending time with myself. πŸ˜›
