go to a movie, museum or restaurant alone?

I am asking because I have done all three many times. At times it was because I wanted to go alone and other times it was because I had moved to a city where I didn't really know anybody yet and wasn't going to just sit around my apartment.
Just the other day this topic came up with my MIL and she seemed almost horrified that I would admit to doing those things alone. She said she NEVER would go to a movie, museum, art gallery, or restaurant alone - she would feel too strange and feel like a loser and would rent a movie or order take out rather than do any of those things. To me it seems like no big deal at all.
Granted I don't do that stuff much anymore because I am married with kids and don't really have a lot of free time or time to myself but back when I was single I would not have thought twice about going out by myself.

Am I the strange one and my MIL more the norm or the other way around?
