    No, because you have to pay money

    No, because you look like a fool

    No, because I already know all the Coca Cola trivia bits

    I like utorrent, I like my couch, and so do my friends. But mostly, I love movies.

    Never been to the movies alone, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't care. I'd probably like it.

    I download 98% of the time anyways.

    Yes. If the other person doesn't enjoy the movie we are watching it affects me emotionally, it lessens the experience for me. So I rather go on my own and make my own mind up.

    Hell no. I'd rather not watch the movie at all if I can't manage to bring one person with me to the theater.

    It's okay, but I like being able to talk about the movie a bit with someone else after. I would miss that aspect of having company.

    EDIT: Then again, I generally hate it when someone tries to talk to me *during* the movie.

    I don't know, I never felt like going to the movie theater alone. That results in me going there very rarely at all, since I don't really swim in friends who want to go with me to the movie theater; I was there last year two times, but before that I wasn't in it for several years anymore.

    I prefer to stay at home and watch TV instead when I am alone.

    Although that seems to be a pretty commonly shared opinion, I've never understood what actual purpose bringing someone else to the movies with you serves. The entire setting of a movie theater is pretty impersonal, and for the duration of the film you aren't, or shouldn't be at the very least, interacting with that person or anyone else. Also, I thought perhaps it was due to wanting to discuss the movie with someone that would explain this, but if you and someone else see the same movie at different dates, you've still come to take part in the same experience. Is it that insecurity of giving the outward appearance of a loner that sparks this? Either way, I wouldn't exactly consider a movie to be the way to enjoy someone else's company.
