It might be weird, but I actually prefer to be in an empty theater and the only one there. I tend to go to the first or second showing of the day on Saturdays and Sundays. If I go at night, its to a movie that's been out for a couple of weeks already.
@mikehoss Yeah, I've seen American Hustle. It was good. Didn't blow me away. Perfectly fun and funny. An entertaining enough 2+ hours, but ultimately pretty forgettable. I'm not the biggest David O Russell fan, though (outside of Three Kings).
