8Dear Movie/Theatre/Event Enthusiast:
Please understand that I mean this in the kindest way possible.
If an event starts at 7:30pm and you are with any more than 2 people and you show up at 7:29pm, please do not expect patrons who showed up ahead of time to accommodate you. Please do not ask me to skooch over or tell me your sad story of woe about how you want to sit together. I made arrangements to be there early with my people. You can do it, too. If you choose not to, please accept the consequences gracefully and quietly. Come in, find a seat, separate or together and sit down.
If you show up late alone, there might be seats. Please go to one and sit in it. If you show up late with a group, please assess the situation and then make a quick determination - either sit in the front where there are groups of available seats or sit separately. Do not wander to and fro in front of the screen talking about how full it is and are those 3 seats together in the back taken. The event has started.
That is all.
P.S. Nick Jonas should not have been given the role of Marius. 'Nuff said.
