Something you won't find in most theaters: pillows and other cushions. They're set up in the rows closer to the front, where viewers would need to crane their necks to see everything over a long period of time.

Living Room Theater in my area has a spot like that near the front with pillows. Never sat there, though. I prefer the back.

This is a silly lark with no real future. Human eyes don't work this way - our vision is more horizontal than vertical. Not to mention that due to the way the world works, things that humans interact with tend to be spread out more on the horizontal plane than the vertical one. This is dumb.

Hey maybe some people like to see the world as if they were peering through a slit in the wall of their prison cell.

I don't have anything to say, so I thought I might just say something disparaging about hipsters and move along.

Do you care about how people hold their phones while shooting video?

Congratulations, you're very boring.

Hey, check out this amazing scene I took video of...

What's that?  You can't see the awesome scene because I held the phone the wrong way, cutting off part of the image?  Dammit.

And have you ever watched a vertical YouTube video? It's not boring to demand the person who deemed it important enough to upload to YouTube to make is something we can watch.

Ooo but I'm boring because you said so.

As an entertainer I don't mind people shooting video of my show. But if I see someone shooting a video in portrait mode I will stop, stare at them long enough for everyone else to then start to stare and then ask them if they have ever wondered why movie screens and televisions are made the way they are. The shooter usually gets the hint and flips the camera correctly.

Why is every farking person in every farking article I've read today a farking "artist"? Doesn't anyone have a real farking job that pays money anymore?

Well of course audiences aren't comfortable with the way portrait video is presented.  They are positioning themselves as viewers incorrectly.  Along with a vertical screen to show it on, there should be extension ladders for the audience to sit on.

one reason why vertical is wrong is that the people who use it compromise a lot when it comes to composition. something is always missing or in the wrong place

Wow, look at all that extra money you have to spend, all the time and effort that goes in to showing the films you don't even know how to shoot.
