Hey, I love the top row. In the top row, nobody kicks the back of my seat and I don't have to worry about incoming projectile popcorn or whatever. I don't like surprises when I'm anticipating my new Johnny screen time. :cloud9:


Ditto! :bounce:

Me too! I also watch to see where the speakers are located, and try to be close enough, but not too close to the speakers.

I'm pretty much with theresa on this one. If possible, I like the front row that begins the upper part of the seating so that I am about even with the lower main part of the screen. No craning neck, no one in front, a rail to put my feet up on and slouch if I want. The only drawback is if there is traffic across that open area. And yes, early enough to get a good spot and not be distracting coming in after the lights are down.

Fun question. The answers will be interesting. :cool:


That's exactly the same spot where I sit, TG. Love that rail to prop my feet up! :cool:


Exactly! :highfive:

Yes, yes. This is my first choice-when in stadium seating-but I don't often get there early enough-these seats are gone f-a-s-t !

I like 3/4 of the way back in the center. In the first few weeks the movie is out, I will get there early. Later in the run I have found that there are often only a few people in the theater and I will get there just before it starts.

I like to sit in the middle (the center). I think the view is better. In all the films that I see only sit in the middle (the center). :cloud9:

Half way up in the center. I think this has a lot to do with wearing bifocals, I like being even with the center of the screen.

I like to get to the cinema early enough to pic up a sit 3/4 of the way from the movie screen in the exact center. I can't focus on the movie when I'm on the front row and my eyes get tired as well. The only matter about the last rows are the groups of teens that tend to sit there and make as much noise as possible, they almost drove me crazy when I went to see POTC 3... :headache:

I like to sit at the back, or near the back. If I sit too close I get a headache.

Agreed !!! :highfive:

And I always get there early to select the "perfect" seat.

I like to sit half way up in the center, I feel like I get more of the movie then. But in Norway we get the seat number when we buy the tickets, so we can't always decide where to sit. And we can't come early to get the best seating....

That's exactly the spot our family likes to get when we go to the movies too. Gotta have the rail to put our feet up. If not there, then I actually like the last row of the front section of stadim seating. Close enough to feel like your 'in' the movie, but your not looking straight up into the nostrils of some actors. (Not that I mind that if it Johnny we're viewing at the theater lol)
