You know, I hate sitting in the front row at movies. I can't enjoy the film due to the crick in my neck. *grin*

I wasn't going to see this film 'til DVD ... then found out yesterday it has Colin in it ... so I may go after all. ;)

Actually, I never have that problem. Most new theatres are set up fso the front row is a bit back from the screen...and the older ones, often times, have had seats removed.

What I can't do is fit my legs in the other seats...the seats are too close together, and I am all bent up if I'm not in the front...

Ah see, 'tween being short (for older theatres) and the fact almost every theatre around here has renovated so that there's a ton of leg room (even for tall people like my brother), not to mention enough elevation each row that you can't see the person in the row in front let alone have their head blocking your view ... I'm perfectly happy halfway up the theatre.

Not me. I need the screen to be larger than life. If I'm back, it's just too small. That's why I pay money to see movies, to have them be big.

Sadly, even the new theatres put the seats too close together for my legs. If I can't put my feet on the armrest ahead of me, my knees are hitting the seat in front of me....

And I hate heads in front of me. Period.

Erm, as I said, you can't even see the people in front of you in the theatres here ... sounds like the theatres there aren't being as generous with legroom as here ... sitting in my seat, I can't even reach the seat in front with my legs if I stick them straight out forward!

No...this is me being picky, the heads-thing. I don't want thim in my field of vision. I don't like anyone in front of me. Even if they're not directly in front of me...

I'm hardcore. What can I say. LOL

And it's possible the seats aren't as widely spaced here...some theatres are absolute hell to spend two hours in if I'm with someone and can't do the front row...

I do like that railing-row at satdium seating places though. As a compromise to whomever I'm with more than anything else...

Ok, see yah, what I'm saying is that you can't even seen the people in front of you. Not at all. All the seats are raised high enough that EVERYONE has a totally clear field of vision, the top of the seat in front of you is at like knee height and the top of your own seat is 9" over the top of your own head. (Plus the armrests come up so you can snuggle with your date - hee!)

Rail row is great so long as noone is coming into the theatre late ... coz then you get them walking right in front of you looking up for seats in the place. I hate that. *grin*

Basically though I think we're violently agreeing - we each like to sit where we best enjoy the film. For me, coming out with a migrane isn't it. ;)

Yep, we are...you hate migranes, I hate cramped legs...

even in our stadium seats, I can see the heads.
sucks being tall.

what I really want is to have the whole damn theatre to myself. No talking, no kicking, no crunching...

I do love the armrest thingy. Now, more than ever.

You know...for some reason none of this matters at a hockey game...

I hate it when people stand...and there's nothing to see. Sit the hell down!

Hmm...yeah, those armrests would be pretty sweet all right...hm...Baseball games, too...

And they call it "stadium" seating. Stadiums should have it so good!
