5. No pressure
Thereís a ridiculous and maddening idea embedded in our culture that doing things alone is sad, weird, or sad and weird. Itís absurd to think that sitting silently in a dark room for two hours requires company. Films are not a social experience; they are a shared experience, certainly, but youíre not there to chat or hang out. Youíre not even looking at them, for Christís sake!
This is not to say that you canít enjoy going to the movies with a friend – you absolutely can, but donít be shamed into thinking that you canít go and see a movie youíre really excited about because no one wants to go with you. Fuck them. Go, have a great time and donít give a fuck about what anyone thinks. They’re wrong, not you.
