Lack of cinema

I realised the other day that despite my love of going to the pictures, I haven’t been into a cinema since November last year. This is despite the fact that there have been loads of films that have come out subsiquetly that I would really have liked to go and see.

It sounds like a sad case, but its because I have no one to go with. Now before you all e-mail me with messages of comfort or abandon me for being a loner, hear me out. Its not for lack of friends or people to go out with in general. I can always find people to go drinking with and even going to jazz concerts etc. with, but it would seem that the cinema is either somewhere you take your girlfriend too or go with a big crowd of people before hitting the bars on a Friday night without much thought to the movie you are watching or even keeping the noise down for others in the theatre. Not being in either of those two categories, I seem to have been missing out on a lot of good film, which is a shame.

I have decided that the time has come to start going on my own rather than missing out if I can’t get anyone to come along. I can’t stand missing out on good movies any longer just for the sake of having someone to go with, after all, whats to stop me joining friends in the pub after who don’t want to go to the movies?

This is a “I want your opinions” posting. Do you go to the cinema on your own? If you don’t, would you consider it? If you do, do you like doing it or prefer not to? Post your opinions and views in the comments section 🙂

    The views expressed by ‘Grumpy Old Men’, shown on BBC2 yesterday evening, are exactly the reasons why I hardly go anymore. I particular enjoyed the comment about the dangerous effects of ‘passive poprcorn eating’.
