Cineworld causing mild grief with allocated seating
Listen up everyone - the world is coming to an end. Cineworld is trialling allocated seating and the internet is going into meltdown.
It started off with someone called We Are Vultures (real name, Weven R. Vultures) sending a snotty tweet to Cineworld Cinemas, who then had the audacity to tell the truth.
This has been panic and outrage spreading across social media. So much so that someone's gone to the trouble of setting up a designated account about allocated seating at Cineworld. Seriously. You can see for yourself here.
The main gripe is that you can't just turn up to the cinema with your mates and watch a film. Presumably, you can, but that's not the point is it? Making images like this are the point.
This harks back to the riots that spread across Britain when people had to buy tickets for seated gigs and theatre productions years ago, when 30,000 people lost their lives after refusing to take it From The Man.
You can assume that Cineworld will charge more for premium seats, which of course, some cinemas have done for years. Again, that's not the point is it? The point is...
...well... we don't know. Maybe you can go to the Odeon or something instead? Or download films and watch them at home? What kind of lunatic goes to the cinema anyway?
