Not like people would even respect the seating arrangements considering that half the theater would be empty.

It's likely that they wouldn't realize unless they bought the tickets; they'd just see that every other seat was taken.

If I remember right that was in China. Maybe chinese people are more obedient.

Every theater I've been to has just given you a ticket and you just find a seat. I've never gotten a ticket that said "You have to sit in seat x in row x"

It used to be like that in the UK but last time I went to Vue cinema we were assigned a seat, but asked if we want to be in the front, middle or back.

In the UK, the Cinéworld cinema business now gives tickets with numbers. It's ******** , because I used to go early to get a good seat and I ******* earned it. Now lucky bastards get my good seat. It sucks.

AMC is starting to assign seats to their newer theatres.

I believe this took place in China where most things, including theater seating, are quite organized and strictly so.
User avatar #52 to #2 - makomirocket (08/11/2014) [-]
its in more popular cinemas where you experience this, in order to minimis the large amount of seats left empty by people not wanting to sit next to strangers, e.g. if most groups are of 2/3 people, and you leave a gap between each, thats 1/4 of lost ticket sales from the other groups of 2/3 not wanting to sit seperately

In Spain, most premieres and blockbusters are "numbered" sessions, which means that you get assigned a seat and a row. Movies that have been out for a while or less important movies are "non-numbered", which means that first come first serve. Given that most cinemas are part of European franchises, I'd wager it's the same all around Yurop.
#28 to #26 - satoshimiwa (08/11/2014) [-]
Forgot to say, in "numbered" sessions you are assigned a seat and a row, but you're offered several options, like on a plane. So it's not like you're stuck with a ****** seat.

No really, it's true.

Fascinating... Do you order online? Or do you just go to a movie?
In both cases, where i live you have to take that specific seat, which the ticket says. Unless the movie is like virtually empty.
User avatar #9 to #8 - flemsdfer (08/11/2014) [-]
I just walk in and get a ticket, then from there on they tell you your theater number and you just go in first come first pick of seating.

This is why I don't watch movies on release here in NA, full or not people are determined to sit one space from the next guy, causing a need to ask people to move around so you can sit with your party of 2 if you are not 20 minutes early. That and I don't like crowds =D.
#12 to #8 - IamWhoIam (08/11/2014) [-]
You can buy it online or just walk in. But I've never heard of a movie theater/cinema with assigned seating here in the US. But theaters that do live plays/ orchestra halls there are assigned seats obviously.

Been all over the states and Canada and I've never had an assigned seat at a movie theater, must be a European thing, sucks for you guys.
User avatar #15 to #13 - potatovillain (08/11/2014) [-]
Well we have them here in BC Canada, and I'm pretty sure some theaters in the US have them.

They're actually pretty great, given that the customer chooses the seat number not the randomly assigned by the theater (so whether they get it online or in the theater, there's a screen with a map of all the seats and their numbers and you can pick)

So you can buy the tickets days in advance and get good seating, so you won't have to come 30 minutes early before all the good seats are just taken.

While I'll give you that would be pretty convenient, I will say in my experience at big midnight movie premiers its almost a fun social thing to do to camp out with all your friends and see a bunch of people you know while you wait to go in. We do the online seat thing for concerts and such, so I do see the convenience. Do you have to pay a bit more for the better seats in the theater? Or is it kind of a race online as soon as tickets go on sale to get the better seats?
User avatar #55 to #46 - potatovillain (08/11/2014) [-]
Naaah, I'm not too much of a camper, my friends and I just like to come in and have a seat; I don't really like standing and wait for an hour or so.

All seats within a hall are priced the same, but seat selection in itself is not offered in all the theater's auditorium. It's only offered in what's called the "UltraAVX" halls which are about two bucks more expensive than regular halls. They are bigger and have more comfortable seats than the ones in a regular movie auditorium.

Some of the seats in these halls however are priced higher if they are D-Box and are activated for the movie. What's D-Box? Simply put it, the seat MOVES with the movie, great for action films. More details here www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBbEaEUqtnY

Thats pretty ****** sweet hahaha.... I get that though, there's many times where I wait a few days to be able to just walk in and sit where I want. It terms of the premiers though, for really big movies or series and stuff (ex Marvel films, Harry Potter, LOTR, etc.) everyone will buy their tickets online in advance (those big ones will sell out before the premier, so you have to go online) and then show up 5 or 6 hours before to get in line for a good seat. Sounds a bit ridiculous i know, but you see just about everyone you know so its a great big social gathering.... I still am jealous of that Dbox gig hahah

I too am from BC, though I know of no theaters with assigned seating
User avatar #53 to #42 - potatovillain (08/11/2014) [-]
Cineplex theaters. For example the Scotiabank Cineplex Theatre in Vancouver
User avatar #54 to #53 - kaisakuenkou (08/11/2014) [-]
Of the three Cineplex theaters in my area, none of which have assigned seating
User avatar #56 to #54 - potatovillain (08/11/2014) [-]
Oh I forgot to mention, this seat selection feature is not available in all the halls of Cineplex theaters, it's only available in UltraAVX halls. So I'm not sure if your Cineplex theatre has one of these. If they do, they should have them.

It is a European thing, it is also a thing in North America during certain situations like special seats or VIP cinema.
User avatar #30 to #6 - commontroll ONLINE (08/11/2014) [-]
Here in America you get your tickets and just find seats when you arrive. Though for things like theater instead of cinema they have specific seats and all.

In the UK every mainstream cinema (such as Odeon) let's you sit wherever you want, or you can pay extra for premium seats (comfier, two armrests each, with the best view), but if people can't sit with their friends they are allowed to sit in them at no extra cost, what's the point of going to the cinema with your friends and sitting apart

I've been to both, but I prefer the ones with resigned seats.

The seats were much nicer.

This actually irritates me. Not the asshole reserve guy, the idea that there are assigned seating in movie theaters in Europe. People are paying customers and should be treated like adults and sit wherever the **** they want. **** this idea. Of course, driveins are the best.

People usually just sit wherever they want if it looks like the owner of the seat won't show up. Also if you don't buy your reserved ticket abour 15 minutes before start the ciname can sell them out.

That wouldn't work in sweden since so many people most likely did that. We have number seats and if you leave one seat as space it will not accept the placement. At least 2 spot has to be available.

Works fine, can order a ticket couple of days before and pick it up an hour before viewing and get good seats.
