Would you go see a movie by yourself?

Would you ever go to see a movie at a movie theater by yourself? I've done it several times before and I have to say, I almost like it better than going with someone else. I like being able to arrive as early or late as I want, sit wherever I want, and just enjoy the movie with my snacks. lol

I've heard other people say they would never do this so I'm just curious what you think. Would you go see a movie at a theater by yourself? Why or why not?

  • Frankly I do mostly all of the time, for the simple fact that my friends don't feel like watching that particular movie or they are too tired after work to watch it.
    So when am done from work, I just drive to the movie theater by myself, grab a ticket, a bottle of water, and just go enjoy that movie :-D

    Otherwise, the voice inside my head would be shouting out loud:
    "what are you waiting for? Christmas?"

    Cheers!!!

  • I've never gone to a movie by myself, but I've thought about it. I can never seem to find anyone who wants to go see the movies I want to go see. I can go see what I wanna see, I don't have to share my snacks, I don't have to worry about someone talking, and if it's an emotional movie, I don't have to worry about being judged if I cry. 😂

  • After I saw Thor Ragnarok with my friends I wanted to see it once again but none of my friends would come so I went with my mum. I still didn't get enough of it and wanted to see it once again. My mum called me crazy so I decided I'd go see it by myself. I do not find it odd and am comfortable to do it but only if nobody wants to come along and I really have a craving for it. I wouldn't just watch any movie by myself.

  • Not awkward or embarrassing but the time from home to the theatre and then the interval and then again from theatre becomes very boring. Moreover being with friends you just don't watch movie after movie you can hangout somewhere... So a simple movie becomes a group hangout...

  • Depends on the movie. If it is something that I've been REALLY looking forward to then, yes, I would go alone if nobody wanted to come. Usually, though, I prefer someone coming with me and sharing popcorn.

  • Seeing a movie by yourself allows you to get more immersed in the movie, so that is something to consider. I saw Mad Max alone, and I was HYPNOTIZED. Having people with me, I don't think the effect would be the same.

  • Yes many times usually when it’s a movie I either can’t wait to watch like the last Jedi or because no one enjoys it so I go to watch myself. I also go alone when I don’t want to be distracted.

  • I like watching a movie alone more than with other people, but i usually watch it with other people. There was this one time where no one wanted to see tomb raider with me so i watch it alone, and do you know what was the best part? My entire row was empty so i was basically sitting where ever i wanted

  • I do it all the time. My friends are more spread out nowadays and I don't trust people that easily to find new friends. The friends that I made beforehand that live nearby happen to have different schedules than I do.

  • I use to do it often when I was younger. There was a movie theater not too far from where I lived, that had early shows, but it was usually empty. So most times it was me and 8 other people. I so enjoyed that. 😊

  • There's nothing wrong in going movie alone. I do it when I'm bored. I'm usually focused on movie when I'm at movie so doesn't matter if I'm with anyone or alone.

    • That's awesome! Having the entire theater for myself? what a dream xD

    • Show All
    • I have never been that lucky lol. But I wonder if i be worried about my choice of movie if no one wanted to watch it...

    • @TheNoOne It was a cool movie so it’s not because it sucks. I actually saw it later by my self a week later and there were a few other people then.

  • I've done it plenty of times. If I want to see a movie, and no one wants to, I'm still going.

  • did it before. one of the best decisions in my LIFE because I'm that type of person that controls my emotions in front of people.

    backstory i watched train to busan with my family for the first time and i had a VERY strong urge to cry then because it was so sad and i felt a huge lump in my throat but i managed to keep my composure

    i rematched it the second time alone, initially wanting to watch with my friends but shit happened and we had to be separated. i was a little sad but mostly meh because i was gonna watch the best shit ever again

    and ok like the last 1/5 of the movie is so heartbreaking, and y'all can guess which girl SOBBED her eyes out for the entire period. i couldn't help it i was sniffing and shit also the theatre was pretty empty then strangely and everyone was all snuggled at the back of the cinema and all eyes were on me lmfao... like yea people be sniffing and tearing but i was full on crying my ass out because i was alone

    10/10 would watch movies by myself again it was wonderful

  • Well I mean, I like going to the movies with at least one other person, because I usually share looks or jokes with them if something funny/cliche/Fangirly happens. It feels good to know that I'm not the only person laughing at something exceedingly stupid.
