Premiers rendez-vous et sortie en couple au cinéma. Enquête socioculturelle et filmique réalisée auprès de spectateurices de cinémas d'Île-de-France

Abstract : Going to the movies is the most practiced cultural outing in France. Moviegoers predominantly go as couples rather than alone, with their families, or with friends. Are movie theaters favoured spaces for romantic relationships? The two objectives of this thesis are to center spectatorial practices in film studies and to analyse conjugality through the lens of cultural outings. It makes use of an original method to do so. A sociological movie was made on the basis of joint interviews conducted in movie theaters across Île-de-France. This thesis is nourished by the stories collected around the theaters, but also by hundreds of anecdotes heard all through its writing. Is the movie theater a place to « pick up » a date? Does it play a role in the creation of a couple? At which points of a relationship do people go to the movies, and what function do these outings play in the relationship? This thesis will elucidate the thousand strategies used by couples to take pleasure together in an outing where no outcome is certain, be in on screen or in the theater. A heterosexual context makes this experience even more risky at first glance, as a differentiated socialisation of cultural tastes leads to disagreements when it comes to choosing a movie. In spite of these annoyances and even arguments, it would still seem that the paradoxical intimacy of the movie theater, in which one is alone with another person in the midst of so many other, truly « makes» couples.
