I would really want to go to the cinema sometimes but I really don't have anyone else but my mom. If you have any experience, please write it down.
It's not "weird", just kind of sad.
Why do you want to go to the cinema in the first place? Also, why would you need someone to go with so bad that you'd go with your mother instead of just flying solo?
Then go by yourself, friend.
It's not an activity that is made better by going with other people. Enjoy the movie, and when people ask just say "yeah I went to the cinema the other weekend, X movie was great". No reason to mention you were alone, and if they directly ask, just lie.
But really, I'd just wait and torrent the movies. Cinemas are overrated and overpriced.
They go with friends talk and joke with eachother. You will probably not have the same experience with your mother. Going to the movies is not about the movie it is about socializing
Anyone that says you can't do things is a literal child. I hardly see my mom and I enjoy taking her to watch movies she wants to watch whenever I'm around. I go alone whenever I want to watch a movie at that point in time. I go with friends to pass time, and talk about the movie after. I take grills out occasionally for some public fun in the back. Stop giving a shit what others think.
You know, normal people do things with their parents. No one can tell if you're seeing a movie with your mom because you like to catch up once in a while or if it's because you have no other friends.
God damn you're stupid. Or more likely you're just trolling me and doing a damn good job.
By that logic, why does McDonalds serve food to only one person? They'd make more money if it's a group order.
>Some places, infact, most places don't allow just one person to go and see a film.
This is bullshit. Theaters are slowly losing ground to netflix so they're in no position to turn anyone away or they'll become too troublesome to use. Most of them are trying new shit to get people to come in at all like making screenings for women and babies or letting people text in the middle of the show.
I went to see "Mama" with my mom, so there's that.
>tfw can't go watch a movie by myself because of no-singles policy
But anon, have you not learned anything from Twilight? It's so important to have a romantic relationship! Otherwise you're a creep! If you go longer than a month without a girl- or boyfriend, you're probably a basement dwelling creep!
the only people who will care and think that's sad are literally projecting
I go with my dad all the time and that's really good, we watch the movie and have a lot of fun. Last time i went with "friends" these assholes spent the whole movie talking and talking and fucking around with their phone. And they said that this was shit, fuck them.
>most places don't allow just one person to go and see a film
what fascist country is that in?
I can't pick up a girl without my mom, can't imagine picking up one with her right by my side.
>people actually believe that "cinema alone = super creepy, taboo, forbidden" bullshit meme
nobody give a fuck about you. It's not even that uncommon. If you're concerned about obnoxious pre-teen or a niggers, don't watch a film for obnoxious pre-teen or niggers.
>surprise penis inspection day
>separated booths for singles with bullet proof glass
>armed guards harassing you if you do anything out of ordinary or don't move fast enough
>get thrown out of the theater for the slightest misnomer
Its not as weird or sad as robots make it out to be. Most respondents are being too critical and over analyzing this. Just as you're probably envisioning yourself from needing to even ask the question.
My own mom is a movie critic and she works hard, so I treat her to a movie she wants to see every now and then. No strange stares, no questions, no one really cares about what you're doing. By the slimmest chance they do, why does it matter to them or you? Its okay to care what people think about you as everyone wants some type of positive self reception, but in reality, you should only apply that to people you care about who really impact your life one way or another rather than someone you'll likely never see again.
>thinking it's weird to hang out with your family as adults
Anon, it's completely okay. People do that.
Because you speculate about it on the way there and then you talk about it on the way back.
I go to the movies all the time with my mom and dad. I'm 22 and my family raised me on movies, so it's a big part of our lives. When I was little, my mom used to take me to the cinema almost every weekend, it was just something fun for us to do and stay together.
I think it's a really great way to keep families happy. It's a nice activity that you can experience together but no one gets hurt or upset doing it, so I feel like it's a good way to bond.
I have some friends of my own but I fucking hate going to movies with them because they're all retarded and they want to talk throughout them. Almost 90% of the time, I'd prefer to go to the cinema with my mom. Plus, she's a way better movie going partner because she likes all types of films, we went to see Knock, Knock just the other week and loved it.
I go to the movies all of the time with my old lady, she's down for any decent action flick that involves secret agents and all that shit.
Though I have more of a brother/sister relationship with her since I was raised by my grandma as a kid and being the only remotely sane person that she can talk to while she was having some serious health problems (Lupus, fucked up hip replacement).
The last time I went to the cinema was in 2005. I went to see Wallace and Gromet (sp) with my mom. I don't care for movies, but I also don't know why people make a big deal about going to the movies along or with your parents
Who gives a shit? I went to watch Sicario with my parents a few weeks ago.
Nobody fucking cares, enjoy yourself. Your parents aren't going to be around forever, there is literally nothing wrong with spending time with them.
Yeah, me and my mom live together.
We usually just scream at each other then have a peaceful coffee, then throw tantrums, and again have a nice meal.
Just like every parent and kid.
