A few days ago I bought a ticket for a movie that’s playing tonight. I chose a seat in the back, at the very end of the row because I wanted to sit alone. It is by no means a prime seating location. I just checked to see how full the movie theatre was going to be, and saw that someone chose the seat right next to mine.

Why?!? The theatre has over 40 of the 50 seats empty, and every seat in the back row is empty except for mine, yet this person still decided to pick the seat right next to me.

This is the 3rd time this has happened to me in the last few months. Am I weird for being bugged by this? Do other solo moviegoers like sitting next to another solo moviegoer? Thankfully Fandango lets me exchange my ticket, so I’ve moved my seat to the opposite side of the theatre.
