John over at the MovieBlog discusses pre-selection of seats in the theater. He makes some good points here in the video. At the local Showcase, there is a director’s hall, where you get reserved seats for a little bit of extra money. During the matinee, I think Non-selected seats works, but in the later showings, not so much.
If the theater is too crowded, I usually just go back to the counter and ask for a later time. Some people don’t have that option.
A guy over at Filmjunk.com makes a good point that would be some stupid people that will come into the theater late now because they have reserved seating. Yeah, that is a good point too.
