Is Going To The Movies A Good First Date?

Is going to the movies a good first date?

Going to the movies can be a fun first date, but just like most basic b**** first date ideas, it does have some downsides.

So if you want to up your dating game and get better first date results, keep reading.

In this post, I'm going to explain:

  • Exactly what you should do to make those movie dates better
  • Some possible alternatives to a typical movie date

And a lot more. Let's get into it.

Downsides Of Going To The Movies On A First Date

First, here are the downsides of taking a woman to a movie on the first date:

#1. It's Distracting

You're going to be watching the movie instead of watching your date.

Basically, you're not getting a chance to create strong eye contact. Eye contact is one of the keys for creating attraction.

#2. There's No Conversation

It's possible to sort of bypass that downside, though. I'll get into that in another point.

#3. It Could Create A Bad Association

If you choose a bad movie, it's going to equal a bad association.

She's going to connect that shitty movie to you, and that's not going to be a good thing if you want to get a second date.

#4. It's Expensive

It costs money to go to the movies, and you don't have to spend money on a first date.

#5. It Takes A Lot Of Time

Besides possibly picking her up, if you're into that, and the time to get your tickets and get in line and then sit and watch the movie, you're probably looking at maybe three hours or more.

That's a pretty long date. But it's not all bad.

How To Get The Most Out Of Going To The Movies One A First Date

If you want to get the most out of your first date movie, then try some of the following:

#1. Physical Contact

You can put your arm around her, hold her hand, or even put your hand in her lap, depending on how comfortable she is.

#2. Flirt In Her Ear

That sounds weird, I know.

But basically, we all know that when you're talking in a movie, you're not going to be speaking out loud, so you're not going to be having a regular conversation.

With some distance, you're going to be leaning over and talking into her ear.

The great thing about that, obviously, is it creates more intimacy with your face being closer to her face.

#3. Make Out

You could make out in the movie, in which case you'd probably have a much better movie date and possibly escalate from there.

#4. Invite Her Home After The Movie

Avoid finishing it off with a peck on the cheek.

Why not invite her home after? If everything went well, the movie was good, you made out, or whatever, you whispered her ear, just go for the full meal deal.

So, yes, you can make the movie into a good date. However, I would personally skip out on the cost and the time involved to take someone to a movie and just invite her home for a Netflix and chill instead.

You can still watch a movie at home, and you're in a much better environment for taking that date somewhere.


Now, here are some common questions about taking a girl to a movie on a first date:

Is going to the movies considered a date?

Going to the movies is considered a date. In fact, going on any outing with a woman is considered a date if you make it into one.

How do you flirt on a movie date?

To flirt on a movie date, just focus on light conversation. Lean in really close and speak right into her ear quietly and softly (obviously, because you're in a movie theater).


When deciding if you want to go to the movies on a first date, remember the following:
