When I put ‘Go to the cinema alone’ on my 31 Before 31 list, it was simply because I had never done it before. I don’t necessarily think there’s anything particularly adventurous about it, it’s just that living where I do, the opportunity doesn’t really arise that often. If I lived in the same town as a cinema, I’d probably do it all the time.
Anyway, so I thought this was going to be one of those things that I just never got around to doing, but last week I went to see The Wolverine all on my own! I went to my local cinema, which is a little independent one, and it cost me £3. I love independent cinemas.
I have a My Thoughts On… post coming up at some point for The Wolverine, so I won’t go into too much detail on what I thought of the film, but I will say that going alone had no real effect on my enjoyment of it, either positively or negatively! I enjoyed going on my own because it meant that I simply went when I wanted, rather than considering other people’s plans. I’m sure I’ll go on my own again in the future, and in the meantime, I’ve crossed off another 31 Before 31 item!
