If your date has suggested that you pick the movie or documentary for your upcoming trip to the movie theater, here are some tips that could help.
Pick something that interests your date and will be a good source of conversation afterward
First and foremost, it's best not to pick something purely because you would enjoy it; instead, you should opt for something that you think your date will find interesting. This will show them that you're considerate and are eager for them to enjoy this movie theater visit.
Secondly, you should aim to choose a movie or documentary that will give the two of you some food for thought and provide you with an opening for some interesting conversation when you've finished watching it. For example, if they love stand-up comedy and have been to see several of their favorite comedians' live shows, then you could pick a stand-up comedy documentary.
This would be better than watching a recording of a comedian's live show, as rather than making you laugh, but not providing you with much to discuss, it would show you all of the intriguing, silly, and weird things that go on backstage at comedy shows and would explore how the comedian's approach to stand-up is influenced by their struggles and life story.
In short, aside from being very engaging, it would give you lots to think about and to share your opinions on, which could help you and your date to understand each other better and find out if you are similar enough to be compatible.
Ensure that you choose something that includes a few laughs
Whilst, as mentioned above, it's worth picking something that has some substance to it, rather than a fluffy, light comedy, making sure that the production you watch includes a few lighthearted moments will give you a chance to bond with your date over the comments or incidents that you both found funny. Some jokes here and there will also lighten the mood and balance out any heavy topics that the production explores, which will then ensure that you don't leave the movie theater feeling excessively somber.
The aforementioned stand-up comedy documentary would also be a good choice because it would almost certainly provide the two of you with a few laughs, as you'll probably get to watch snippets of the comedian's shows and will be treated to their hilariously insightful and witty commentary on their own life.
