Well i have and i've been bothered with all the reactions i'm getting everytime i tell them that i can and i do enjoy watching movie alone! I mean whats wrong with that? You can consentrate more on the film and you can understand the movie better if you have nobody to talk to! right? Or do you find it odd? I know a lot of people out there who shares the same point of view on this... :D i need you answer... have you watched a movie alone?

So many times I did watch movies alone as a teenager. I love watching alone because I could really sqeeze the substance of the film. I dont really watch movies just to have fun. I do this because Im a lover of art. I am always curious about acclaimed films and I want to be sure that I will be able to understand the plot well. Besides, I wont waste money for a film that I wont be able to figure out. Its also okay if Ill bring along someone with me. Someone who would really watch and would not talk too much so I could concentrate.

I don't think there is anything wrong with watching a movie by yourself, i've done it. Although I haven't gone to the movie theater by myself, if that's what you're talking about.

I almost watch movie allone. I dislike somebody to be arround, i can better concentrate when i am allone. It`s very unpleasant when somebody talks arround and comments.

I have never watched movie alone in the cinema. I can watch movie alone at home, but it's not possible to watch it by myself in the cinema. The people who go to the cinema, usually they are couples, lovers, friends and families. I will feel alone there. I want to share a movie with someone else, no matter it's a sad, happy or a horrible movie.

Yes.. i did go for movie's alone few times. Its really nice actually.. But usually i will be going for movie's alone when i have something serious to be thinking about or something. Cinema is a nice place to think about your problems and how to solve them. Yo have pop corn's, nice movie and no wan to disturb you for 1 hr plus. Hehehehe... but ppl do look at you as if your are a weirdo... Hehe..

Hi there Oasis!! I respect your thought about this, but i'm just not brave enough to watch in theatre alone. I could watch movie alone when in our house but definitely not in theaters. I'm scared there might be maniacs inside and would sit beside me lol!! I'd rather watch with someone. God bless.

I used to be that paranoid also, thinking like what if the theater would caught on fire and other stuff but after i've seen my first movie alone all those thoughts just vanish...

i haven't been to the cinema alone..and i doubt i ever will haha. i don't think it's wrong and it's no biggie, just that i feel weird watching a movie all by myself, so that's why i don't watch movies alone. i admire those who does, though! ^_^

Nope, I've never watched a movie alone in a cinema. I don't think there's anything wrong with it. It's just that I'm just the type of person who needs to have company. I can't even eat alone! I get uncomfortable being alone. It's okay for me to be alone at home though. So I do tend to watch movies alone at home. But not at the cinema.. Plus, like others have mentioned, it's a place to couples and families. So, I would feel totally left out.. =P But I do look up to you for doing it. Not everybody is up for that kinda thing.. Kudos to you~! =D

I am not sure whether this discussion is applicable to me as I am a male. So before I tell I think you know the answer. I went to movies as a teenager, with friends and most of the time alone. But after marriage, we go with not just my wife and son but cousins as well. It adds to the fun.
