A Chinese man has ensured that his movie night on Friday will not be ruined by snugglingcouples, after he bought every other seat at a cinema in Shanghai.


The unnamed man’s anti-Valentine’s triumph was made possible after he set up a campaign on a crowdfunding site in order to be able to afford all the tickets.


Thanks to his campaign, a Valentine’s Day showing of the film Beijing Love Story at a movie theatre in the city’s Xintiandi shopping centre now only offers odd seats.


The man, only identifying himself by the online nickname UP, described himself to the Shanghai Morning Post as a ‘computer nerd’.


After breaking up with his girlfriend last year, he is no longer interested in finding himself stuck between loved-up couples on Friday.


UP explained to the newspaper that the stunt was difficult to pull off as the theatres online bookings system refused him to reserve odd seats, and the staff at the cinema refused his request.



‘I also didn't have enough money. So finally a friend recommended that I start a campaign on a crowdfunding site, and there were enough single internet friends out there to help me raise the money to do this sort of thing.'


'I hope all lovers understand this is just a small joke,' he added.


After the online campaign, UP and his group of defiant singles have bought every other seat in the cinema, so that no two adjacent seats are available to purchase.
