I think it was the Truman Show at a second run theater. My mom and I were there and then there was the vice principal from my elementary school, coincidentally enough, and some other random person.

Before my son was born, my wife and I would go to a movie every week. We always went to see whichever top 10 film had been out the longest, and we always saw the first show on Saturday morning. Over half the time, we were the only two in the theater.

Grazing thru the multiplex (after viewing the feature I'd paid to see) I wandered into the Mouse Hunt auditorium. It was empty. The movie had just started and I laughed in solitude 'til the end. Someone did eventually make some money from me, I now own the DTS LD.

I know someone who works at a theater, he reported to me no one, that's 0 person was in the noon showing of some movie not worthy of knowing.

A few years back I had a 6-month free pass to a local theater, so my brother & I went to see a late show of Honey, I Blew Up the Kid. We arrived about 7 or 8 minutes late, and we were the only people who showed up. They were about to close early, but they turned everything back on for us. That was nice of them.

Beauty and the Beast IMAX (my date, me and one other couple in an IMAX theater at night). Only 2 employees. The other couple started necking pretty heavy, which made it difficult to watch the big screen.

Parenthood (my date and me) in a one screen rural theater. Guy in the projection booth yelled out, "are you ready for me to start the movie?"

That would have to be when I went to one of the last showings of Apollo 13 in the theater. It was one of those theaters inside of a mall and like 10:45 at night. I'm pretty sure that I was the only person in the place.

Dirty Work is such an awesome movie. Yeah I thought there would be more people at Jay and Silent Bob but there weren't. O well I got to bust a flow during cause I got high. It was dope.
