>A Japanese friend of mine recently went to the theater by herself for the first time in her life. She said she was so embarrassed because people rarely ever go to the movie theater alone in Japan, and it’s often seen as an activity you do with friends or on a date.http://jpninfo.com/16297Makes you think.
who cares? i cant remember the last time i went to the movies with another person. do you really want someone bothering you every 5 minutes with stupid questions because theyre not paying attention?
>>106866142>assigned seating>Ticket cost 1800yen = $18Japanese theaters suck.
>>106866142I go drinking / sports with friends I don't want to hold their hand and share a soda
better than here where you can't even go to the cinema alone
>>106866142>Terminator GenesisShe paid $18 to go to see Terminator Genesis by herself? That's pathetic.
>>106866142>go with a friend to sit silently by that friend for 2 hoursits the people going with friends who are the weak ones
>tfw went to The Phantom Menace and all 3 LOTR alone
>>106866142Japanese theaters are comfy, easy as piss to sneak booze into
People in Japan always sit through the entire credits roll even if it's all in Romaji. No one ever claps. Everyone always takes their trash out with them.
>>106866258My friends aren't that stupid.
>>106867646horrible nightmare for people who employed as janitor
>>106867646Jesus dude that sounds incredibly not fun
>>106866142>mortally embarassed to go alone>still doesnt ask anon to accompany>my friendGot an unpleasant take for you, buddy.
How do I make a Japanese friend?I like Japanese movies, some 90s anime, and find their culture very interesting, but I wouldn't go as far as saying I'm an autistic weeabo.
>>106866697I went to see Rec3 by myself
>>106867646Do they sit there quietly as they watch the credits?
>>106867646>Clapping to a fucking film>Not taking your trash outSkip the cutscenes unless it's cape shit though, fuck sitting through that garbage.
>>106867646>No one ever claps.It's not live. They can't hear you.
>>106867851It's called being polite and showing appreciation for a strong movie
>>106867920The movie can't hear your appreciation, anon.
Anyone else go to the movies when traveling and/or on vacation?I've been to movie theaters in every state I've lived in. Foreign kinoplexes I've been too:>Fancy brand new one. St. Petersburg, Russia>Shitty old one. Mosscow, Russia>Shitty old biscoop. Akureyri, Iceland >Mediocre one. Dublin, Ireland>Gross one. London, UK>Half-abandoned, hurricane-damaged one. San Juan, Puerto Rico. >Standard decent theatre. Victoria, Canada,>Shitty small one. Kyoto, Japan>Semi-fancy over-priced one by Disneyland. Tokyo, Japan.
>>106867920And your clapping signifies this to who?
>>106866142>man goes to the movie theater alone>no one gives a shit, gives him odd looks or makes fun of him at worst>woman goes to the movie theater alone>gets a trending news article written about how stunning and brave she is
People always say you should just go alone bc nobody cares about you and they mind their own business but this is so wrong. Normies and especially young girls will judge you for everything.
What was the last movie you really enjoyed, anon?
>>106867581It would be so much easier to do things alone with half the human population dead.
>>106868004Ask them what the fuck they're looking at and if they have a problem show them these nuts
same in Denmarkonly losers go to the movies alone
>>106868004The question is why you should care what some stranger thinks of you in the passing before promptly forgetting your existence altogetherBetter to just face the reality that you're utterly irrelevant than entertain the delusion people are constantly thinking about you and getting stressed over it
>>106868091If I say something to them, they will probably film it and put it online
>>106868129they can film themselves being knocked tf out then but maybe i dont have this problem because im not white
>>106868033The greatest racing movie of all time.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDEq4mVqocY
>>106866142Claping while watching movies is really stupid. Really stupid.
>>106868129smash their phone then
>>106867646I am living in Korea. It's the same way. They have some of the best theaters in the world. Largest imax in the world. Every theater is clean as a whistle. Audiences are respectful. Popcorn is cheap. Seats are comfortable. Also I've been to many movies here alone and it's fine.
should have gone to one of the pink eiga theaters where they play double/triple features of 70ies/80ies softcore porn flicks. I've literally never seen a couple at these, mostly single middle aged men and shockingly sometimes single women as well, who always try to sit as far from any men as possible.
>>106868033I watched The Naked Gun a few nights ago.I love that movie, the opening with OJ made me cry from laughter.
do Italians really do this?
>>106868187>The greatest racing movie of all time.That's not Senna you cunt
>>106868679Senna was fucking overhyped as a racer, a complete scumbag who literally cheated his way to victory and got away with it every single time.
>>106868679>Documentary movie>Same as an actual movieNo.
>>106868474>sitting out in a boat watching a movie on an aquatic drive-in theaterThat sounds comfy as fuck anon.
>>106867646>not pissing on your seat and dumping your large coke and popcorn all over as a dressing
>>106867646>always sit through the entire credits roll. No one ever claps. Everyone always takes their trash out with them.Wait...this isn't normal?
>>106868474might be fun, but theres a bunch of pajeets that didn't pay.
>>106868926Every time I've sat through the entire credits I've been alone at the end.
I want to go there with a group of friends and be as loud and as obnoxious as we can manage while trashing the absolute fuck out of our seats
>>106868926>be american>movie finishes>everyone applauses>dump my popcorn on the floor>dump my soda on the floor and smoosh it into the popcorn>get up to leave>let out a few farts and burps>stamp the popcorn on my way out making sure to really get it into the floor>halfway out the theater, a post-credit scene rolls>stop in the aisle with everyone else to watch it>it's funny, start clapping wildly>drop the keys to my motor scooter it's so hilarious>try to find them but it's lost in a sea of soggy popcorn>pull out my back trying to reach down>go to hospital>walk out with a 100k bill for some tylenol>declare bankruptcy>on my way to the bank to submit the forms>get shotgod bless america
>>106866142cool story bro
>>106867646do they walk out of movies?
>>106866142I just buy 6 tickets and go alone surrounded by no one. Center, last row.Only way to enjoy a movie imo
