Going to the Cinema Alone?!

Up until last week I had never gone to the cinema alone, I was always scared about walking up to the box office and asking for a ticket for one and always thought they would think I was a bit of a loner.

 Going to the cinema is mainly associated with going with a friend or family. You can watch a film at home alone and enjoy it so why is that any different than going to the local cinema? Your not there to chat to a friend you are there to watch a film so why should it matter if you are there alone!

I arrived at the cinema and just waltzed in (Not literally but you get what I mean) got my ticket and then headed to the screen, I waited and waited for other people to arrive but still no one just me sat down in one little chair out of the whole room and then the lights went out and the film began… I was the only person in the whole cinema and you know what… I survived! I will be going to the cinema again I won’t ever feel like I can’t because others are busy or don’t want to see the film, If I really want to see it that just what I’m going to do!

I’m not the most confident person or someone who is super loud and outgoing so for me this was a big step but looking back I don’t see what all the stigma is about. Once I told my friends they all acted like it was a big thing or that they could never go on there own and I just don’t get where it comes from, if you want to go they why shouldn’t you?!

Let me tell you, the man selling me a ticket didn’t care I was on my own, he didn’t pull any faces or snigger he just sold me my ticket and then went to serve the next person in line.

If you are thinking about going on your own just do it! Let me know in the comments if you have ever been to the cinema alone or if you would ever go!
