    I'm a real film geek and one of my best friends is going to do film and media studies and uni and we often go alone. If one of us is busy then chances are the other one goes because it's an art form at the end of the day and it's fine to enjoy it together or in company

    Hi,

    There's a few movies that look good this summer, but when I told people - most of them didn't like the movies, so I said "no worries I'll go by myself".
    The horrified look on their faces !
    "You can't go by yourself. You'll look like a complete weirdo".


    Is it really that socially unacceptable ? 🙄
    You should try finding someone...

    Nope. Not that socially unacceptable. I know that at Cineworld, tons of ppl go alone with their Unlimited deal.

    My friend goes to the cinema lane all the time. He isn't friendless or anything but just likes these indie movies noone likes.

    If anything, the cinema is the best thing to do alone, because you'll be focused on watching a movie and you won't really have time to look at everyone else (otherwise, why pay £10 to not watch the movie?)

    Never let anything stop you doing what you enjoy. There's nothing worse than missing out simply because none of your friends want to go with you.

    Reality check: it's not illegal; it's not immoral; it happens often enough to be described as normal/socially acceptable.

    If you don't believe me & the others here, set yourself the practical goal of going to the cinema with your friends, but 100 metres before you reach the entrance separate, enter the cinema, sit on your own for the duration of the film, then meet them outside. Review how you felt.
