It is at first, but you can get used to it. If you are going to go by yourself and want to feel the least conspicuous go during really really off times like 3:30 on a beautiful spring afternoon and anyone who is in there will either be alone or won't care. That or when it's really busy such as 9:00 on a Friday Night at a really popular movie and it's hard to find a seat. In which you will almost certainly end up sitting next to somebody. If you are going to try the latter, make sure there will be no one there who might possibly recognize you and realize that you are alone. If you can get those down, it won't take long before you won't think anything of going by yourself anytime.
