The Movie & Me

After a very long time, I went to see a movie in a movie theater and what an overwhelming feeling it was to be the only one in the theater watching it. It's a multiplex (multiple screen theater) and I went to watch this movie called "I am number 4". I expected a very small crowd to see the movie as it never made it to the list of weekly charts but I didn't imagine sitting all by myself in the theater and watching it from start to end. Personally speaking, the movie was not that bad but I agree people wouldn't be going out to see it after a week or 2.

Anyways, it was a nice experience because I had the freedom to sit with my legs on front seat, keep my phone ringer on and check my emails now and then (although no one sends me email these days) and not worry about anyone sitting next to me and staring me with those devilish looks complaining about disturbance. I wish it were a scary movie instead of sci-fi fantasy movie.

This was the 2nd time in my life when I was in such a situation. The 1st time was with my half wife when I met her on her birthday in 2008 after almost an year (we were seven seas apart) and we both went to see a movie. We had few more couples that day watching movie with us, so it was not an exclusive show for us per say. But this time, it was a VIP show for me with no one around. I was all by myself, just me...
