HOW TO … Sit in the Cinema seats in style


Now you all know that I’m a massive movie fan and I review a lot of films, but there comes a time when I wonder how and why people sit in the seats the way they do.

It’s always surprising seeing how people sit in their cinema seats and more than often I’m surprised that they are actually comfortable in the ways that they are sitting in them.

Some cinema seats have fixed arms rests, which can be a fight on who’s side is who’s, that’s a whole different infographic, some seats have arm rests that can be raised, great for slouching across several seat and a few, like my local cinema, have reclining seats to relax in during the movie.

So while on my internet surfing the other day, I came upon this InfoGraphic that actually shows you the many ways of sitting down to watch the movie of your choice!

So the question is: Which style do you sit in your cinema seat while watching a film?

    I’ve had a few of those scumbag styles sitting behind me in the past, right nuisance, for me I just sit normally, though sometimes I do get in to discussions on which side is your arm rest!

  • Yep and me, and I always seem to get those ones that keep bobbing up and down in front of me!
