An interesting time at the movies last night. We went to see a preview of Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader in 3-D at Warwick Grand Cinemas.
We were the second family in line so once we got inside we pretty much had our choice of seats anywhere in the cinema. We chose the perfect viewing area and started to sit down before realising the seats were soaking wet. We moved to the row in front. There were about ten or so wet seats in a row so we assumed they must have just been cleaned. Pretty poor effort on the part of the cinema to leave a row of soaking wet seats without warning anyone.
There were four seats at either end of the row that were dry so they filled up but after that pretty much anyone who walked into the cinema spotted almost an entire row of prime viewing and headed straight for it only to be told by all those around that the seats were wet. Most of the time it was met with, “The seats are wet?” to which all around would say, “Yes, they’re wet”.
It was great pre-show entertainment as group after group made a beeline for the wet row.
The most interesting situation was when a middle aged guy turned up with his family, was told about the situation, but wasn’t prepared to believe anyone else so he just pushed past the people at the end of the row to touch every remaining seat.
Sure enough they were all soaking wet so he put his tail between his legs and headed out again looking somewhat foolish in front of what was by then a packed cinema. I know that there are times that we need to test what other people are telling us but surely when a cinema is filling up and the best seats are still vacant, there’s got to be a reason. Let’s hope he learned something about trusting what other people tell him.
