I love going to the movies. I mean, I love movies in general, but GOING to see a movie at a movie theater? So great.
The smell of popcorn being popped is comforting. The absolute distraction from my usual thoughts as I sit in a dark room, staring at a giant screen, no on allowed to talk, having to immerse myself into stories that have nothing to do with me can be wonderful.
Being around people can be great, sure, but being surrounded by them without the pressure of having to interact? That can be just what the doctor ordered once in a while.
Sometimes it’s kinda sad. Sometimes I’d rather not be alone at the movies, but sometimes I prefer it.
Usually it’s calming.
Oh yeah, and fun.
