As long as it's not to see Transformers 3 grin

I go see films on my own all the time. It's a great way for some "me" time away from the family and my wife hates sci-fi. I am happy to say I'm one of only about 7 people in the whole country who hasn't read or seen any Harry Potter!

I fail to understand why going to the cinema is seen as a social activity... you're sat in the dark in silence!

Blurry29 Thu 07-Jul-11 22:24:05

peace and quiet away from the hectic life...

Bring it on....and bring on Harry Potter smile

Blurry29 Thu 07-Jul-11 22:24:39

ahhhh AuntiePickleBottom... I'd love to smile

AuntiePickleBottom Thu 07-Jul-11 22:25:36

really want to do this, but only got childcare for the 2nd part

VivaLeBeaver Thu 07-Jul-11 22:26:03

Not at all. I'm off on my own

Blurry29 Thu 07-Jul-11 22:28:29

OMG AuntiePickle Bottom...

That sounds lush smile

CurlyBoy Thu 07-Jul-11 22:29:49

Sorry Blurry, I've never been a fan of fantasy, except the Lord of the Rings of course. It may sound daft but aliens and laser guns are far more "believable" than magic and dragons! smile

I go to the cinema a lot on my own - much rather curl up in the corner with a bucket of popcorn on my own and get engrossed in the film that sit awkwardly next to a friend! I get right at home - taking off my shoes and sitting with my legs under me. And its my treat for 2 hours to watch a film and not MN do housework at the same time!!

Blurry29 Thu 07-Jul-11 22:31:47

ok get the books and I'll throw in a lightsaber?? smile

I would love to bugger off to the pictures on my own, watch a movies with out mummmyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy every five minutes. Ive always wanted to go at a 5pm showing and sneak in a macdonalds haha and stink everyone out and make them soo jelous of my french fries.

By the way im 38 Ive read all the harry potter books and I cant wait to see the movie

One of my most favourite things to do-cinema outing in the afternoon.
Last week went to prime time showing of 'Bridesmaids' alone thoguh. Very funny too.

I'm considering going in Friday morning after I've dropped the DCs at school. And I'm taking the DCs On Saturday anyway. Just thinking it will be good to watch it without having loo breaks every half hour.

Blurry29 Thu 07-Jul-11 22:36:28

I am going to try and see that too next week...heard its F@@king hilarious @)

emmspemms Thu 07-Jul-11 22:52:13

I want to see Bridesmaids, I love going to the cinema on my own , last thing I saw was The Black Swan , nearly jumped out of my skin at one point ! And thought OMG at another ...
I love Harry Potter , and have read them all, some out loud to my children ( til they got too long ) and I am .....50 !!!

AuntiePickleBottom Thu 07-Jul-11 23:00:18

i just booked my tickets, getting really excited smile

I love going to the flicks on my own.

DH gets the grump, though, in case I see a good movie we should, IHHO, see together. He's never got over me seeing "Sunshine" on my own.

He recently got stupidly stupid on this when he didn't want to see "The Trip" at the cinema - wait for it to come out on DVD - but was gently miffed that I'd go and see it on my own. I am one of the teachers who have sod -all to do but see films during the holidays. Silly bugger.grin

Him, not me.

Do it. For me it is one of life's most simple pleasures.

slartybartfast Thu 07-Jul-11 23:06:44

good idea, might try it myself

lala21 Fri 08-Jul-11 08:56:44

i'm going to watch Harry Potter all on my own, no screaming kids, moaning husband, no cooking and housework. Yippppppppppppppppeeeeeeeeeeee
can't wait..yes i know am sad .. don't care

I fecking love going to the cinema alone grin

The trick is to have good hair and makeup and heels, and flounce in with the expression of someone so TIRESOMELY well equipped with adoring pals and a retinue of men that thank GOD for the odd two hours alone in a cinema. I have spent years not quite perfecting this look.

I'd happily see HP alone but DH will pretend to come grudgingly along...
