I went to quite a few movies alone when I was 11-12.

The closest I've ever come to watching a movie by myself, was when we went to the drive-in once, and for the second feature, my friend wanted to watch King Arthur (I think it was called), and I wanted to watch Chronicles of Riddick, so I grabbed my folding chair and walked over to the other screen.

He said he regretted his decision.

I love that movie! It's the epitomy of the 50s alien invasion film. I will admit, I largely love it for its kitsch value, but some of the effects are genuinely well done for the time. I did find the scenes where composited UFOs shoot down footage of real US army planes, no doubt recordings from WWII of real dead/dying pilots was pretty tasteless. I wasn't offended, more amused that they thought that was acceptable.

Yeah, I think about that every time I see something like that in a movie. Even movies today still do it.

The 50s alien invasion films were subversively anti-communist propaganda, in that only Americans (and the "American Way" by extension) were depicted as being under threat by conquering alien forces.  Remember, this was a time when the "Red Menace" was poised to unleash their nuclear weapons and incinerate everyone in America.
