There’s absolutely nothing wrong with going to the movies alone. In fact, I’m sure we’ve all done so at one time or another. It’s no big deal.
I’ve been the movies alone, of course. But I’m not sure if I’ve ever gone to the movies alone on a Friday or Saturday night. Being that those nights are associated with date nights, opening weekends for new films, and in general people are more free on Fri/Sat, why would I wanna be seen at the movies alone?
Who’s looking at me anyway you ask? Probably nobody, especially since movies are shown in a very dark room, in which viewers are focused on a screen, and not each other.
I guess then it’s the actual waiting on lines, entering the theater, and then leaving the theater parts that could potentially make the solo movie-goer insecure about being alone on a Friday or Saturday night.
It shouldn’t matter what other people think, but nevertheless, I only go to the movies alone for matinees, or Sunday-Thursday nights.
Anyway, I do have admiration for people who roll solo to the movies, anytime. I know people who also enjoy going to sporting events, concerts, or even enjoy taking trips alone — even trips to foreign countries on their own.
To me that’s somewhat bold and brave, but to them it’s just fun — but hey, that’s what makes the world go ’round.
