Nothing can beat the experience of going to the movies solo. And if the movie turns out to be exactly as you had expected it to be then its pure joy. Any movie buff out there will agree that it’s much better to enjoy a movie on your own then with company because then you can give your hundred percent to a movie without having to care for the other person’s comfort or discomfort and besides your judgment of a movie won’t be interrupted by someone else’s opinion. Don’t care to bother if people call you a loner or anything of that sort because only a true Cinephile will understand that a relationship with the movies is as serious as any other relationships around us. So from one solo movie goer to another, I offer you a few tips on how to make your solo time at the movies – at a theatre or at home – worthwhile for you. Alright, you don’t have to thank me for that.
10. If Possible, Catch First Day First Shows
Watching a movie before the rest of the world is not possible unless you are a member of the press or an in demand celebrity. So the only option for us movie loners is to catch the first day first show every Friday. Doing so has its own set of benefits – you are not exposed to reviews of experts or opinions of self proclaimed critics on social media. People now-a-days have a tendency to reveal the plot or an important twist from a movie on social media and the only way to escape such an exposure is to watch a movie at the earliest possible moment.
9. Always Watch at Your Favorite Theater
It’s preferable and advisable to have a fixed venue for your weekly dose of entertainment as comfort plays a huge role in enjoying a work of art. Also a familiar place gives you the luxury of dividing your time accordingly to devote yourself to a movie as you know how much time it will take you to reach the desired venue. As a regular customer of your choice of theatre you know the infrastructure inside out and you can choose the best seat location to get the best view in the room. Sounds good, right?
