Buys two large drinks and a bucket of popcorn for sharing. Right before the movie even starts, he slips his jacket off of his shoulders and around yours. Clearly enjoys the movie, but he also spends a lot of time sneaking glances at you to make sure you’re enjoying.
Lets you cling onto his arm from the queue outside until you get settled in your seats. Keeps quite still, munches popcorn, and focuses intently on the movie, but mutters something witty about it every now and then. You find his comments funnier than the movie itself, and he appreciates this.
Keeps you close all the way into the movie theater, then holds your hand as soon as you sit down. Discreetly jumpy when something scary or shocking comes up, but he’s secretly waiting for you to hang on to him and lean on his shoulder.
Genuinely enjoys the movie and tries to stay focused on it, but you can tell when he’s looking at you. Pulls the old yawn-and-stretch trick, trying to play it cool, but later he’s holding on to you tightly. After this, you both seem to enjoy and respond to the film even more.
Holds your hand as you walk into the theater, then asks a lot of questions to make sure you’re comfortable. Chats about the movie until the trailers end and the lights go off. Casually hooks his arm around yours as the movie goes on, but later you both end up being linked very snugly.
Stocks up on snacks and large drinks before entering the movie theater. Leans slightly to your side when you settle down in your seats. During the movie, you react at the exact same moments and in the exact same way, comfortably tucked in your seats like you were just watching a movie at home.
Carries the popcorn and drinks and lets you lead the way in. Mostly eats while you talk because he likes listening to you while the trailers play. Absorbed in the film for the most part, but every now and then, he reacts so loudly that you both laugh about it. He’s a bit shy about it, but he lets his fingers brush yours on the armrest.
Gets comfortable in his seat, and this makes you sit in the same lazy way. Tries to make up a funny story with the popcorn kernels while waiting for the movie to start. He’s dazed at the movie at some points, but he snaps right back at the jumpy scenes, ready to hold you and keep you from being scared.
Checks on you to make sure you’re warm, snug, and happy with the snacks before the movie plays. Eagerly discusses plot points while waiting. By the time the movie is over, you realize that your shared, candid reactions have made his company much more enjoyable than you thought it would be—more than even the movie itself.
Tries to contain his giddiness and is set on making the evening special. Buys not only snacks and drinks, but matching souvenirs as well. Unconsciously intertwines his fingers with yours, then gets quite absorbed in the movie. But when you finally lean on his shoulder, he leans a little as well and loses some focus.
Thinks of your comfort and enjoyment, first and foremost. All the expenses are on him. Makes sure you’re not too cold and that your seat isn’t cramped or lumpy. Puts his arm around you as the lights go dim, not letting you go or even shifting much until the credits start rolling.
Gets everything ready before you even meet up, from the snacks to a surprise gift. Links arms with you as you settle down and chat over the trailers, staying that way all throughout the movie. Can be as jumpy as you at the shocking parts, but he’s always ready for you to snuggle up for comfort as needed.
Sits back in quiet appreciation of the movie, and at first he doesn’t seem to pay attention to anything else. Later on, however, you find yourselves leaning towards each other; your hands are locked and resting on his lap, while he strokes your hair gently with his other hand.
Playfully keeps the popcorn away from you even though he’s more than willing to share. At first, you think his attention is entirely on the movie (and the snacks), but you realize later that he’s had his arm on your backrest all along. He welcomes you when you snuggle up to him.
Looks forward to the film just as much as you do. Every now and then, he’s at the edge of his seat and bouncing his knees a little, but he always leans right back and puts an arm around your shoulder. Checks up on you at random times and holds you more tightly when you say you’re cold.
