    Question Going to the Movies Solo

    Planning to go to the movies this weekend to see Bleed For This, by my lonesome.

    Need some time to myself and my friend recommended doing this.

    He said he does it all the time to get a break from his wife/kids and said it's so relaxing.

    Anyone go to the movies alone once in a while? Do you like it?

    Do you think it's weird to go alone?

    I have done it plenty. It's awesome. Nobody to bother you, it's relaxing, you can walk as slow as you want, etc.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    not married with kids so I prefer to use the movie theater trips as time to bond with someone opposed to getting out of the house. I watch a lot of movies by myself but I don't have people constantly bothering me when I'm at home so I see where this could be a good opportunity to be alone

    Yes, I do it all the time. I'm much rather do with someone but sometimes people aren't available or don't want to see a movie I am planning on seeing. I tend to go on a weekend in the AM, very few people in the theaters by me so its basically like a private screening.

    I've done it and it felt weird in the beginning. This idea was introduced to me by my ex during our first date. I thought it was a big red flag since she seemed to enjoy doing stuff by herself, but it turned out to be great! I've always been a quiet person anyway whenever I watch a movie even during a date night, so I tried it. All the side comments when the film is being played always bugs me anyway so why not. Personally though, if the movie is something light, I wouldnt go alone. But if it is something a bit serious and demands your attention, i'd go. Having said that, it's been a while since the last time i've done it. I think thr last one I saw alone was J. Edgar.

    I usually go by myself to watch the Marvel movies. But I have to go when they are slow like during the day. Because it just feels weird to be by yourself when its packed in my opinion.

    We used to have an old theater here that pretty much got put out of business when they put a huge imax theater in downtown. But while it was trying to hang on it was great because you could go and there would be nobody else in the theater. I remember watching Joe Dirt and Gladiator and being the only person in the theater. That is awesome.

    I tend to go Monday mornings alone to see new movies in theaters. Normally just a handful of people, it's great.

    I've gone alone a few times. I was out of town so I went to kill time. It hasn't been crowded any time I went so it doesn't feel as awkward. I don't think I would go alone during a busier time though. Not that I would be embarrassed or anything like that but I probably wouldn't it as much. As I've gotten older doing things alone doesn't bother me as much. I would rather go with someone but I would rather go alone than not go at all.

    I go solo from time to time. The last time was Star Wars, The Force Awakens. 10 AM on a Sunday morning. Three people in the theater with me. Loved avoiding the crowd.

    When I get away from my wife and kids, I prefer the rub and tug. To each their own.

    I don't think it's weird for people to be going to the movies alone. If there's a movie you really want to see that no one else is interested in, go for it. There's no one stopping you. Plus you don't have people bugging you every now and then.

    Anybody who went to see Joe Dirt was alone in the theater.

    I've done this a few times. Most recently I went to meet a client and they called me and told me they had to reschedule. I had a couple hours to kill so it was perfect. I'm kind of a loner anyways, always kept a small circle of friends... and especially as I get closer to 40, my wife is pretty much my only friend these days. So naturally sometimes I need a break from her and some time to myself.
