Fold Flat Film Fare...Tray

With cinema treats becoming increasingly more elephantine, the arm rests just don't cut it anymore as food and drink storage areas.

Even if you're lucky enough not to be seated next to someone whose primary flab roll isn't being corseted by their seat and spilling up over the armrest, you still won't be able to fit your pail of coke and popcorn trough into the thing very easily. Revolutionary crazy types might suggest there's a way to eliminate this problem and shrink the average cinemagoer in the process, but frankly I'm too busy lying on the floor eating fried cheese and occasionally trying to sit up to concern myself with it.

Instead, have a fold-down tray on the back of the seat in front, plane style. Gives space to store all your snack treats and frees up the armrests for the resting of arms or corseted flab rolls. Life is good!

       [+] Sounds good, only problem is the people who go to the loo during the movie. You'd need to lift all your goodies off the tray for a moment, and again when they return.

       Announcing the next product in the line, the in-seat cinema toilet!Hmmm...perhaps not. If it was up to me (as, if justice is served, it surely will be one day) toilet breaks in cinemas would be illegal. Those with weak bladders may wear incontinence pants or stay home or try not drinking 4 pints of Coke an hour.

       I'd like to get a little blanket and a cushion as well.

       A sick bag would certainly have helped me through "Closer" and "Love, Actually". Never again will I compromise, this is my vow, no matter how far into the doghouse I may have managed to crawl...
