Nope you´re not alone. If I take my car to the theater I first drop off my friends and they know I will be gone for some time to find a good parking space.
I´m sorry to say I have no garage and park my car in front of the main entrance of a nearby police staion an walk for a mile to get home !.
1) police station has big parking places for just one car.
2) there are police agents walking in/out of the staion so safety garanteed.
