    I love going on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon too as it can be deserted.. I think 3 people is the least I have east in a screening with.. Funny enough, all were sat alone.

    I was also missing films I wanted to see trying to arrange going with friends when it was convenient or where to see it I thought "fuck it", signed up to Cineworld Unlimited and go when there's something on I want to see.

    yeah i normally go on a tues or wednesday, the most i've been in is with 6 or 7. Theres been times i been in there on my own. I saw irom man 3 with just three other couples. Which ironically one of my friends turned up with his missus. Aside from just catching up you just do sit there and watch.

    Wednesday afternoons are rammed with pensioners instead, I popped along on a day off to see Skyfall and realised my mistake.

    I live a 5 min walk from my cinema, so often go alone. I always decide I want to go 20 minutes before a film starts, so never have chance to arrange stuff.

    I used to arrange big groups of people to go and it was always a nightmare to arrange all my friends (and costly with prebooking on my credit card) These days if I go in a group I let someone else arrange it.

    Iíve been by myself three times now and loved it every time. You can flick off your phone, sit back and relax without having to worry about whether someone else is enjoying the movie.

    The main bonus is that you can go and see whatever the hell you want because you donít have someone else saying they donít want to see it.

    Edit: If youíre lucky enough to live in Bristol, head to Watershed by yourself to see a movie on a Sunday morning. I went to see The Truman Show there last year and it was wonderful.

    Reconsidering now, but always thinking about how others will judge... And there likely will be others at a big Edinburgh cinema.

    Do you guys not think others will look upon you in a certain way, or do you just not care?

    The only person who's really thinking about the guy alone in the cinema is that guy, no-one else there is really going to care beyond thinking about it for two seconds.

    Simple answer, couldn't give a damn what people think.

    I was going alone on weekday to a empty room for a few films but didn't check the calendar for the 3rd batman film and went on a school holiday, place was packed.

    I used to live in Bristol, I loved the Watershed and the Arnolfini is it? Sitting out by the water with a pint, and then off to watch a movie.

    yeah i used to enjoy going to the picture house in southampton. Nice comfortable cinema right on the marina. Infact it was just round the corner from cineworld, which was 3 mins walk from halls. So best of both worlds.

    I think i know where watershed is in bristol. Think i walked past it to see a band play on a boat. of all things.

    I don't go to them anymore now days cause too many dicks have to spoil it but I don't see the problem with going alone because unless you are a dick you wont be talking to anyone during the film anyways.
  • Deleted user 5 May 2013 22:57:46
    @neems Yep, was having a drink at the Arnolfini on Friday night. Watershed is great!

    @MrDigital Who gives a damn what people think? As long as you donít look nonce youíre fine.

    I like to go to the cinema on my own and sit in between 2 young women with a carton of popcorn on my lap.

    I prefer going on my own. I remember going to watch one with a friend once who said "this is boring, shall we just go?" mid way through a film I was enjoying. I said no, so he walked out anyway and left me with no ride home.

    It sounds like the Islamic rhetoric a guy at uni used to say when one of the girls suggested he allowed his wife out the house and bought her a birthday present.

    I usually go to the adult cinema alone. As do most people. It's perfectly fine once you get used to the squelching and slapping sounds.

    I heard a guy talking in there once, and asked if he was talkin' to me. Turns out he wasn't.

    Nothing's as good as getting a blowy on the backseat row.
