Forbidden Doughnut: No, i would not./ no assigned seating in any movie theater near me anyways...// hope the US companies don't import this awful idea
Marcus Aurelius: If I was allowed to skip the 20 minutes of commercials before the movie and still get a good seat?Maybe.
timujin: I am honestly surprised by the number of folks who don't have assigned seating at their local theaters. It seems to be about 50/50 here, with both AMC and the Arclight chains doing it and, as far as I know, all of the IMAX theaters do as well. Also, they have to list the start time as the time the previews actually start, none of that "twenty minutes of commercials" crap.
Earguy: $3 more than what we pay already? No, not when you consider that for a couple it's an extra $6, and a family of four, $12.Now, here's what I would pay for: A "couples' seat." Take out three seats in the middle of the row, and put in a nicely upholstered/padded seat with no arm in the middle, wide enough for two to be comfortable, with the arms on the end fitted with large cup-holders and an indentation to hold your popcorn/snacks without having it knocked over. That would be worth an extra few bucks.
criscodisco: Unfortunately, the mixed drinks still have movie theater pricing, so it's like $8 for a vodka tonic that's mostly tonic.
MusicMakeMyHeadPound: Between the ticket booth and the seat I got the old "You can't ever do anything right, you're so inconsiderate" screech
KWess: Why, in 2014, would anyone pay to go to a gawd-awful friggin movie theatre!?
gadian: Count me in as one who would pay more, or rather pay at all, if theaters had ushers patrolling the theater to toss out anyone with a cellphone/tablet/annoying lighty up gadget and who is not respectfully quiet. I prefer to sit near the back.
hej: No, but I'd pay a hell of a lot more than that not to share the theater with a bunch of obnoxious mouth breathers. Even better yet if I can have somebody pause the movie when I need to take a piss. And what I'd really like is some comfy recliner instead of those ass numbing stadium seats.
MusicMakeMyHeadPound: Between the ticket booth and the seat I got the old "You can't ever do anything right, you're so inconsiderate" screech.
criscodisco: The local AMC has assigned seating only in it's IMAX and 3D theaters, but there's no surcharge and they have waiters that come around with a menu for the really nice seafood restaurant next door, and serve mixed drinks.
lindalouwho: Forbidden Doughnut: No, i would not./ no assigned seating in any movie theater near me anyways...// hope the US companies don't import this awful ideaI've never heard of movie assigned seating. Also don't want the idea imported, though it wouldn't affect me - never liked sitting in the middle for films, just for concerts./hope I didn't just give music venues an idea
timujin: People are staying home as it is. Go ahead and raise prices, I'm sure that'll get them out.
CruiserTwelve: Go to the last show on Wednesday night two weeks after the movie comes out. You can sit anywhere.
GrailOfThunder: gadian: Count me in as one who would pay more, or rather pay at all, if theaters had ushers patrolling the theater to toss out anyone with a cellphone/tablet/annoying lighty up gadget and who is not respectfully quiet. I prefer to sit near the back.Alamo Drafthouse.
Honest Bender: Look, the movie "experience" has already degraded enough.And now you want to make the experience evenworse?!"omg, I can't figure out why we're going out of business!"
