Yea, just look at all the passion on that wall.

There should be a website to coordinate cinema-dates.

I don't like going to the cinema alone and have, in the past, frequently missed viewing films rather than go alone.

This is a habit I'm growing out of, but I still think it is better to go with a friend or two.

In the near future I'm going to view the last Indianna Jones movie, and the Sex & The City film. I have partners for both of those.

But after that? There are a few films which I can't immediately think of who I'm going to lure away with me. I could either :

  • Go alone, regardless.
  • Randomly ask people to come

If there were a site that had list of upcoming films, and allowed you to express interest in going to see them that would be a fantastic idea. (Obviously location based).

I'd not even assume "dating", because I think in my life I've had a first-date at a cinema once. When I was about 14. Because it just doesn't work - you can't talk during, (and back then we couldn't go to the pub afterward to discuss the film. I think we did anyway ;)

For bonus points you could allow people to rate the films, or even each other. Hmm.

Somebody write it for me? I've got too much on my plate ..probably

Best dating idea ever. That's probably what facebook/myspace is for, but I'd prefer a service that has that single purpose, only.

That's the thing though - my idea is quite explicitly not a dating site.

I just want to randomly have more people to ask when there are films that I want to see - when I know existing friends aren't interested.

Craigslist would be a good place for this, but it's not singularly *just* for movie meetups.
