It depends. If you are on the left (facing the screen) side the section yours it the left one and vice versa. This way everyone has an arm rest and the people on the ends don’t get two. You there is an odd number of seats in a row the person dead center gets two.
I generally am the first to sit down in an aisle so the right one, unless someone strange is sitting there. If that’s the case I got the left one cause someone I know is sitting in that seat and they don’t mind if we cuddle.
Whichever one is available.If none are,I will start to flap my arms like a chicken until someone makes the right choice.If they are slow to catch on,I will add in the chicken noises…loud chicken noises.I refuse to be cooped up at the theatre!
I’ve never considered this before, you’ve got me thinking now, good question Dan.
I wouldn’t be surprised if quite unconsciously I hog both armrests, mea culpa. Apologies to anyone who was sitting next to me at the time, next time don’t be so polite.
They’re both mine, unless someone else get one first. And if they do, well I just take off my shoes, put my feet on the chair and rest my arms on my knees. I can’t very well let just one arm have the arm rest, can I?
