    I love going alone and I do it a lot when I have time. (I didn't even realize some people won't go alone until a friend of mine told me so.)

    I like going alone because I can get truly absorbed in a film. I'm an editor and that plays into it too. I also don't generally like reading in-depth movie reviews as a way to pick a film. I have to do that if I'm picking a film for someone else to see with me. Then I'm worrying about whether they liked it. It's just better going alone. I even enjoy the bad movies, cos I get to pick them to pieces and think about the things I would have done differently.

    I've never placed a whole lot of stock in movie reviews but I know some people who swear by them. I prefer to just trust my own gut feeling. Usually that's worked for me as I enjoy about 80-90% of the movies I've seen. I am pretty easy to entertain I guess. After all, the review is just one person's opinion. If I went solely by reviews, I'd miss out on a lot of movies I would have liked and I would have seen some that I thought were disappointing. Now if the majority of reviews are positive or negative, then I might start paying attention.

    I don't get the difference. It's nice to hold hands on the way in and out and share popcorn. But the movie is a movie and I can always find someone later to talk to about it.

    Yes. I've gone to movies alone for years, and sometimes I prefer it to going with someone.

    I've only done it once and that was because I was absolutely dying to see the movie a 2nd time and everyone knew I had already seen it and would call me a loser. lol

    Otherwise I'm not too fond of that or of dining by myself, but I am going to change that attitude pronto. I'm missing out on too much waiting around for the people to not be busy or to save up enough money.

    Yeah -- me too. I don't really go to the theater often, but it's very rare that I go with someone else.

    This. I'm not particularly uncomfortable doing anything I'd want to do alone, because it's the way I've always done it. It feels weird and somewhat awkward for me to do things like go to movies or fly on a plane with people... even though doing those things alone is nonstandard. So doing things alone doesn't bother me, but I'm just sort of tired of it.

    I like the feeling of sharing the movie experience with others. I like occasionally seeing how my friends react to the movies; I like laughing, gasping, jumping from surprise, etc, in response to the movie, with them. And most importantly, I like talking about the movie afterwards - analyzing it, explaining likes/dislikes. i.e. Reviewing it.

    Sigh - makes me really want to go watch something, just thinking about it.

    hell no.

    I think it depends actually...but here everyone goes to the movies in large groups or with a girlfriend or something...I'd feel awkward if I'd go alone.

    Yes, I would like to be able to go to the movies alone. Too bad the one time I asked to do that, I wasn't allowed to because "only weirdos do that." But it doesn't make much of a difference to me anyway. I can't really interact with anyone during the movie. I suppose it is interesting to hear the people's reactions to the movie, but I can do that with anyone who is in the theater. And it's actually kind of better for me not to be too close to anyone because sometimes I can't help but burst out laughing about something that was only mildly amusing to 99% of the moviegoers

    So, I like to enjoy the movie for the movie, and then seek others who have seen that movie for that whole "connection" part. I don't see the connection in the theater itself.
