I rarely watch movies, so I am probably not a good person to ask, but I think I have been to the movies by myself once. Movie was Austin Powers 2.
Well, that's one thing that I never worry about. I buy a small bag of bulk chocolate-covered almonds at Food For Less or Safeway for about $1.50. Even when Sheena was sharing them with me, they lasted for the whole movie. So my only expense that way was if she wanted a pop (about $2.00). I don't drink anything before or during a show, for fear of missing something by having to hit the can.decs said:"the smallest starts at $5:50". *cry
I go to advance myself with girls i know :shy:Happeh said:I go to a movie to go to another world. Whatever the movie is about, I want to be in that world living with the characters on screen. If i take someone with me, I have to be polite to them out of respect and courtesy. I am their companion so my attention is diverted to being good company to them. I am unable to fully immerse myself into the movie.
Actually, that might be me. I have posted this on 3 other forums aswell.Happeh said:Is there some PR campaign trying to make people feel bad about going to the movies alone? I swear I have seen references to this all over the net. People being shamed because they are "losers" who go to the movies alone.
I'd kill my friends if they started talking to me during a movie. I guess that's why I don't mind going alone. About the only time having friends around is better than going alone is if there are long lines to get tickets, so you have someone to chat with while waiting in line. As it is, too many people are talking through the movies in theaters nowadays. I wish the ushers would do their jobs and tell them to shut up! When I want to see a movie in the theater enough to shell out the $8 for a ticket (or whatever it costs now), I want to see and hear the movie, not some irritating teens in the next row.Happeh said:I think that people that go to movies in groups are wasting their money. They are not watching the movie. They are having a party like going to the bar or having a barbecue. Talking, laughing, joking. Not paying attention to the movie.
