1st Statement:

we have no information about people who left the cinema. NOT SUFFICIENT

2nd Statement:

Same as above. NOT SUFFICIENT

1 + 2:

Let's call T the total number of seats.

Using the ratios given as data, we create the below system of equations:

5x + 6x = T
y + 3y = T

Now we know that:

1) the number of people who were seating at the cinema at the beginning is 5x;
2) the number of people who were seating at the cinema at the end is y;

We have to find is y/5x-y. Solving the above system of equations, we have:

x=T/11
y=T/4

By sostitution, we can easily find the vale of the ratio as 11/9.

SUFFICIENT.
