Is it normal to go to the cinema on your own?
I only ask because I recently did this - only to find to my dismay that I was the ONLY person watching this particularly film in a 300 seat cinema (yes, I counted!). The only other person present was the usher - who I'm pretty sure pitied me!
This is the best way to see a movie! No distractions. No noise.
Having been a film critic for many years, I've seen tons of movies with nobody else in the theater and it's really magical.
Pitied you? No way, empty theatres are the best! It's like having your very own ginormous screen! I love going to the movies alone, it's like treating yourself to the good life. Plus, you don't have to wait and see if people are available to go, you can just go on a whim.
Absolutely. It depends on the individual and the purpose. Some go to enjoy with friends and relatives, other just to enjoy the film. If you are a film buff, then you may go alone. Sitting alone in a 300 seat cinema hall may appear weird, but how many get that chance? If I get it I will surely enjoy.
It's absolutely normal to go alone, although it's rare to have the entire cinema to yourself - how lucky were you! (btw what was the film that you saw?)
Think about it, you don't have to think which friend to take to a particular film, you can just decide to go yourself. This also allows you to watch any guilty film pleasures (like a Jim Carrey film for instance ) and get away with any ribbing you may have gotten for seeing it, going with someone else.
It was Bridesmaids - which I thought was absolutely brilliant, hilariously funny and so fantastic to see Chris O'Dowd as officer Nathan Rhodes (I love him from The IT Crowd)
Most of my friends seem to have found my trip alone to the cinema hilariously funny - but I think you've all encouraged me to try it again!
Well, I'd probably go to a movie with you were I given the opportunity. I used to go watch films by myself when I did watch one. I've the curse of living in my hometown, and not finding anyone at all around that much matches me in priorities.
Non conformist are a dying breed.
I think it is wonderful! I've gone by myself as well and never fail to have a nice time. If you are comfortable and enjoy spending time with yourself, you have it made. There are many people out there who feel the need to be with others most of the time and are lost when alone. I not only think spending time alone is healthy, but it is a great way to center yourself and live in the moment only for you. Everyone should take time to do it each day if they are able!

I believe that each of us have reasons why we prefer to travel alone or in a group. I want to hear your opinions.

My traffic has really dropped off during the past several weeks. Is this normal due to it being the holiday season?
