    Do you watch movies alone? Or have you?

    I have been to the movies alone, I think it's great. I don't mind watching with my friends as long as they're not the ones who try to talk to me during the movie.

    Some people find it strange though when I tell them I go to movies alone. And I found a rant on the net related to this: Shouldn't Movies Be an Alone Event?

    I haven't been to the movies for years but I wouldn't mind going alone, I think that when people say they are going alone people tent to think they are sad and have no friends when that really isn't the case. I have been to the movies before with people and they have kept talking to me and bugging me, I find it really annoying. I also hate it when I am watching a film at home and people are with me and they keep asking me every 5 minutes whats going on.

    agphoenix Everything goes.

    I used to go to the movies alone a lot of times, usually earlier in the day. Sometimes, I just don't want to be around people. And I want to watch a movie for the sake of the entire experience; the size of the screen, the condiments, the audio etc.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with it. Just don't tell anyone!

    If it was a film I really wanted to see I'd go alone. Most of the time I'm happy to wait for DVDs, the reason I go to the cinema is it's often a good way to meet up with friends and make new acquaintances. Go watch a film with some friends and friends of friends, nip for a bite to eat or a drink, and you won't be short of anything to talk about to these new people you've never met before.

    It doesn't mater to me if I go with someone or go alone. Most of the time I wind up going to the movies with the family but every now and again I go alone because noone in my family wants to see the flick or it's a AM sneak peek at a movie.

    Every year I go to the Masters of horror all by my lonesome or atleast till my oldest son gets into horror then I will have a movie buddy...

    I actually really love going to see a movie right as it's leaving theaters because I get to see it in it's full glory without any friends or people to interrupt it. That's not to say I won't see one with friends, don't get me wrong. But movies are great either way.

    The douche who wrote that has no idea what they're talking about; the guys and i always agreed on a movie to watch-never argued or nothing. Besides, if you go alone who are you gonna steal food from when you run out of popcorn? Who are you gonna laugh with when you find something that isn't supposed to be funny hilarious?

    I'm not saying people shouldn't go alone, that's their choice, but it's more fun with friends!

    I hate going to the cinema alone. I have to drag Synd or one of my friends along. Synd has seen many films with me that he didn't want to see.

    I haven't gone alone, but would be perfectly willing to. I know a lot of people that all have fairly similar tastes in movies.
