Get There Early

Movie dates aren’t exactly the best place for a first date, but you can turn them into that! Simply plan with your date on getting there a little bit early. That way, you can talk before the movie and get to know each other. If things don’t go well when you’re talking, you have the movie to stop the conversation. If things are going well, you can keep hanging out after the movie!


Arriving early also allows you both to settle in comfortably and secure the best seats without feeling rushed. It's a great way to ease the tension and make the whole date feel more relaxed. Plus, it gives you a chance to share your thoughts on the movie trailers, which can spark interesting conversations and provide insights into each other's interests and sense of humor. Think of it as an informal icebreaker before you dive into the silence of the film.


Break the Touch Barrier before the Movie

If you’re there early enough, you have enough time to break the “touch barrier” before the movie starts during your conversation. It’s a lot easier to break that “touch barrier” in the middle of a conversation when you’re laughing and joking around than it is when you’re sitting in the dark movie theatre and not speaking!


Touching their arm lightly when you make a point, brushing hands as you both reach for the popcorn, or a gentle pat on the back can ease you both into a more relaxed, comfortable space. Just be sure that any physical contact is welcomed and reciprocated. Starting with a playful touch sets a precedent, making later, more intentional gestures feel natural, rather than out of the blue. And remember, consent is key; so always pay attention to their body language and reactions to ensure they’re comfortable.


Get Junior Mints

These days, you can get just about any type of food or drink from the movie theatre. If you’re looking to make a move on a date, though, get the junior mints. It’s still a candy, but the mint will prepare you for any kissing that might go on!


Junior Mints are a classic movie snack that are a great way to add a bit of sweetness to a movie date. The combination of chocolate and mint can be a great way to set the mood and get you in the right frame of mind for a romantic evening. Not only are they tasty, but they are also relatively inexpensive, making them a great option for those on a budget. Plus, they are easy to share, allowing you and your date to enjoy the movie together.


Pick the Movie

Put some thought into the movie you’re watching, and be sure not to let him pick the movie. I’ve watched my brother’s thought process of a guy picking the movie when he’s going on a movie date, and it’s pretty simple. He usually picks the movie that seems scariest so that she’ll jump into his arms. If you’re not into scary movies, don’t let him pick it! Pick your favorite genre instead!


Don’t Look at Your Phone if It’s Not Necessary

Although this is important on a date of any kind, I think it’s especially important on a movie date where you want to make a move. If you’re looking at your phone throughout an entire movie, you won’t seem very invested in the date you’re on or the movie, which may turn your date off completely to the idea of dating you!


Be Open to Touching during the Movie

You don’t necessarily have to be all over your date during the movie, but you don’t want to act closed off either. Don’t be afraid to use your shared armrest during the movie. When you’re open to touching, it’s easier to make a move.


It is important to remember that physical contact should always be consensual. If your date is not comfortable with touching, respect that and keep your hands to yourself. It is also important to be aware of your surroundings and to avoid making any moves that could make your date or other theater-goers uncomfortable. Additionally, it is important to remember that a movie date should be a fun and enjoyable experience for both of you, so don’t feel pressure to make any moves if you don’t feel comfortable.


Stay after and Talk

If talking before the movie went well, hang around after and keep talking, whether it’s what you both thought about the movie or something else you hit it off about before the movie. You never know what may happen!

@katie -I agree! Never use yur phone during a date!

I would never date anyone who used their phone during a movie. The light distracts and ruins it for everyone behind you. It's so inconsiderate!
