Overbooked Theatre Causes Filmgoer Angst

“They say Christmas day is one of the biggest days for movies, and I believe it. At the Cinemark in Victorville CA (USA), every single showing of LOTR:TTT was sold out .. in the morning. And, at one of the later showings, they overbooked the seating by 200!

The theatre employees believed that there were just a lot of people who snuck in, so they made EVERY SINGLE person stand up and stand in a line so they could check everyone’s ticket! Sure enough, they had oversold by 200!

As you could imagine, when 200 people had to be turned away, some people got a little upset (imagine being a father and explaining this to your kids on Christmas day!) and one man started a riot that led to the police hauling several people away.”

Very strange.
