I remember queuing for seats in the olden days [In reply to] Can't Post

I have a really strong memory of standing for ages in the hot sun in the queue for 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' as a child. We finally got to the front of the queue, and out came the 'sold out' sign. We went to see Star Wars again instead, which I was perfectly happy about.

When allocated seating first came in I hated it. I couldn't stand the idea of someone telling me where to sit. But now I rather like it: If it's going to be busy, I can book good seats online and then just turn up. If it's off peak I can just turn up a few minutes before the film starts and get a good seat. And when the theatre is very quiet, I can ignore the seat allocation and pick my own spot at will.

I cannot stand the idea of having to turn up super early and stand in a line.
