In cinemas or theatres, the National Anthem was played and we all stood up to attention like soldiers.

That's not how I remember it. You only stood still if you got caught at the back of the queue in the rush for the exit and couldn't manage to get out before the national anthem started. The reason for standing still was impressed collective embarrassment at being seen to move rather than true respect.
