    I don't freak out but yes it does bug me. Not my fault they're late...though in the end I usually do end up moving.

    Yeah, it annoys me to no end because I'm a little claustrophobic and I usually arrive at the theater early so I can get the seat closest to the aisle. I don't ever move.

    they just want to sit together.

    I'd be pissed off if a huge pack came and they wanted me to move 10 seats to a crappy seat

    In most US movie theatres, seating during ordinary showings is not reserved. We all try to accommodate other parties, who may wish to sit together. Arriving late, after the movie has begun, however, is rather déclassé, and I may be a bit visibly peeved.

    On the other hand, at other kinds of performances, such as live stage or music, where the seats are assigned, I may simply refuse to move, nor can they make me. I always try to get aisle seating, and then sit just before curtain. People coming in after curtain who make me get up are not treated well by me. Indeed, I may speak to the theatre management, which has the option to bar the doors until a curtain change or intermission.

    Only assholes ask people to move from their seats, and only idiots give their seats to assholes.

    People usually know not to ask me because I'm a step ahead of them and shoot them the look from hell, but on the rare occasion when they ask, "Would you mind moving over (a seat) ..." I always reply with "Yes, I would mind."

    End of story.

    If you're that high on yourself that you think somebody should give their seat to you, then you have a real problem.

    Then you're not a nice guy, then you're an evil guy pretending to be a nice guy.

    In that case, I suggest them to sit around and share the experience with me so I can watch the movie from the perfect spot and also make new friends to talk about the film when it ends... lol... otherwise I move one seat quietly.

    By the way, watch this Brazilian short movie, even if you don't get the lines, the images tell everything. A blind guys falls in love with his new friend while studying for classes. It's a great movie:

    Must be a generational thing, dickishly behaving like you built the fucking theater by yourself or something.
