Seinfeld". It was the 14th episode for the 4th season. It aired on January 6, 1993.
Jerry Schedules two stand-up acts in the same night and afterwards goes to the
movie theaterto meet everyone. George gets in the wrong line for tickets. George, Elaine, and Kramer decide to go to another theater to see the movie "Checkmate". Kramer waits outside for Jerry but also wants a Papaya Kinghot dog. Jerry misses his first show, then goes to movie theater to tell everyone he won't make the movie, but no one is there. Through a comedy of errors, everyone (but Kramer) misses the movie they were originally going to see.
* The fictional film "Rochelle, Rochelle" ("a young girl's strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk") makes its first appearance in this episode. George later rents it from the video store in Season 4's

* The old lady who wanted the seat that Elaine was saving was the same lady who got the flyer from Kramer who was protesting against mail in season 9's "
The Junk Mail".
