    End of a row in the middle of the theater. I get there usually 30 minutes before a show to make sure I get it too. I prefer not bugging people when I have to get up once or twice to use the john.

    back row, huh? I guess that's convenient if the movie sucks. hehe.. I cant believe I just said that. What am I, 12?

    I like about 3/4 towards the back, dead center.
    on a side note, our theater started doing assigned seating when you purchase your ticket. I think I've learned to like it!

    about 6 rows back in the center next to the handi-capped seats, there's always empty with plenty of leg room.

    It can get loud.

    I saw Les Mis in these seats, there's close ups into Anne Hathaway mouth, i could see her soul.

    I like my seats about a 1/3 of the way back from the entrance level (assuming there's 5-7 rows of seats in front of the entrance level).... about as dead center as I can get... but I never walk over people... I'll start going towards the center from the far side and stop a couple of seats before the first person sitting in the row...

    Complicated enough for you? :lol:

    As an interesting note - whenever you go to a movie theater you should always walk across the theater to the opposite side that you entered from - statistics have shown that most people are too f'in lazy to do that, and as a result you wind up with better seat choices. ;)
    Houston, Texas... Believe it or not, there are 7 million people here... must be a couple of fans who'd love to see you play.

    I like to go to matinees of unpopular movies and find the one person there, and sit right behind them.

    When I go, I go to off times too, usually sit a little more than half way down, and I like the end seats.

    5-6 rows from the back, a few seats in toward the center.
    I love the places that let you pick your seats from home and pick up the tickets once you get there.
    I will not sit in the front third, have gone back out and refunded my tickets to come back at a later date when this happens. (Which is why I typically go in about 20-30 mins early and never go during the first few weeks of a new release.)

    This ^

    That way I can also give people a nasty look when they have to get up and get by me! :D

    I've got a couple of those fancy theaters nearby that have like recliners and they serve you booze and quality snacks via a waiter guy.
    Costs more, but man...that's the way to go! :)

  • If it's a big multi plex, I try to find the seats with the most leg room. There's one where the first row has a bar in front of it where I can put my feet up. Another one, I sit at the top of the stairs and try to find the seat that doesn't have a seat in front of it.

    Got yourself a "back row ho" eh? Nice

    I prefer something in the middle of the theater, both in terms of front to back and side to side.
