    Hi Ilites

    the topic may sound funny to some of you. But i just want to know did any one of you went to theatre to watch movie alone. I mean girl, going to movie alone is very rare, boys though goes alone quite often.

    I did that twice.

    First time
    It happened once in mumbai while working, suddenly there was some "Motroman strike" so we have to comeback home, sicne train was not running.

    That day i wanted to watch some movie, and i called up some of my friends, but nobody was free, nor interested.

    Then i decided, ok i will go alone, and i went to the theatre. There was no multiplexes at that time there.

    So when i went there to buy tickets, everyone was wathcing me, a single girl, coming alone to watch movie, so out of sheer embarasssment, instead of buying tickets for xyz movie (i forgto name now) i end up buying "Anaconda" :rotfl

    But i went ahead and watched that movie full and almost ran out the theatre after it was over:rotfl

    2nd Time



    This time this particular movie "Hum Dil De chuke Sanam" i wanted to watch and again mine no friends were free. So i went alone and watched the movie (Right movie) this time and enjoyed it too:thumbsup


    Do you have any such Escapades????????

    Dear radsahana,

    Loved reading your escapades.

    Yes, I have been to the movies alone several times here in London.

    I love watching the classics of 80s and 90s being shown in the theatres during afternoons.The cinecomplex is just a stone's throw from our apartment so I do not find much difference between watching afternoon soaps on telly or matinee movies in a threatre for an hour.

    Library and Movies used to be my favourite pastime.

    I watched all the Disney classic animation movies during Christmas[during my initial days in London when I wasn't working] in the theatre and that was awesome experience relishing them on silver screen again

    Needless to say you can always grab a ticket to these movies as no big rush from the cinegoers to watch these classics.

    I have been to movie alone twice too.. These happened fairly recently..

    First time, I felt sad and depressed for apparently no reason, and I have been asking for my friends to come watch a movie. Actually one f my roomies agreed too, but everytime I said - today - ha, something new came to her life. And all my other friends were either busy or not interested in a movie (not any good movies at that time, but I had to watch one to relievemy senses.! You understand na.. ) So there I go, all alone, and because this was my first time alone I was so worried looking around me to see if anyone knew and might mis-use that info :hide:. Thinking of it now - that was silly.:biglaugh:biglaugh:biglaugh. But hats how saw a movie "Transformers 2" of which I had no info, no hopes, but that was the only movie with tickets available.

    It turmed out to be a nice experience, and guess what that was Steven Spielberg movie! I would have missed the movie otherwise.!


    The second time, ha - the same story of feeling sorry for myself. That day I watched 'hangover'. magine watching this movie amongst all guys (and some gals with boys with them).. Thats was embarassing, I would never have gone for this alone if I had known better :biglaugh. But then after a while, I let that embarassment go - whats the use of spending 100 - 150 bucks for a movie ticket and not even relax!

    Each time, my parents DO NOT now about it :crazy. I am too afraid to even mention it - if I do, I know that what I will be getting :bonk:bonk:bonk:bonk

    Hi Gayathri

    IT seems you had similar experience like me, no one to accompany.

    For me also in "Anaconda" movie, there was some scene of kissing, even i was feeling little embarass, since all guys were whistling and laughing sitting nearby me:rotfl

    You did right and went alone. Sometime i think, why wait for someone for our happiness. IF we like to watch movie, and no one is there, then just go ahead and watch.:)

    thanks for the fb. have a gr8 day.

    Great thread yaar.
    I went to Sex and the city and Harry Potter:Half blood prince alone since DH was not interested at all. And I couldnt miss it for the world. I went alone in the US, but would never do it in India since there is a big taboo attached there.

    Hi Ladies,
    Nice thread. I too have gone to the movies alone. There are some "chick flicks" as they are called, that no one else is interested in so I go alone. It gives me some "ME TIME".
    This may sound crazy but there are times when I take myself out to dinner...lolzz. I don't see anything wrong with it. Everyone else is busy doing their own thing so why wait on anyone..( a little too independent:thumbsup)

    Cheers!
    OOPALL!
