JUST KIDDING! :D
Anyhoo, re: allocated seating. Some cinemas in the UK do this, but it really depends on what type of cinema you go to (independent, small scale or massive multiplex) and sometimes even the film you want to see. There's this cheap chain cinema that I go to see foreign films that doesn't allocate - apart from the time where a certain indie film sensation called Margaret was showing. In that case, however, there were queues outside at 10am (!!!) so it made sense that seats were allocated then.
