I am in the need of some serious cheering up. I have just discovered at my local cinema, films start at 11ish. I have free time between then and school pick up one day next week.

I went to the cinema on my own dressed as a clown.

I'm going to take my fave [[http://www.ocado.com/product/70193011?name=Metcalfes_Skinny_Sweet_n_Salt_Popcorn&source=PLA&gclid=CLOMsaCWzrMCFePHtAodk1MAgQ Metcalfes salt and sweet popcorn. The troughs at the cinema are too £££ and too big (though I can munch through them) .

AngryBeaver - you have moxie. I'm going in my own clothes this time.

I have ben going to the cinema by myself since I was 14 - i am 47 now.

Usually if there is an independent film or art house one on that I fancy I usually ask DH and put a group text out to mates and if no one takes me up on it I go off by myself.

LOVE IT. And if you go on Thurs or Friday you might get a free biscuit & cuppa with the pensioners (Odeon) :-)

I am doing the Twilathon tomorrow and watching all five movies in a row..on my own.. At the cinema..Beat that!

Eggrules Wed 14-Nov-12 10:45:50

I am going at 11ish, I am hoping that there will be few people to disturb. They will be general release films that my Oh does not want to see.

Fluffy - what are your meal plans?

Fluffy1234 Wed 14-Nov-12 11:29:02

Lots of pick a mix and diet coke!

going to the cinema alone is one of my great pleasures.

I am near one of those trendy, independent ones where they let you take a glass of wine to your seat....even if it is only 11.30am

Eggrules Wed 14-Nov-12 12:09:05

You are set Fluff
