Wait a minute. These guys aren’t playing at all, not one lousy bit:
We saw this film at a Regal Cinema. You now have to pick your seat when you buy your ticket, which I thought was kind of shitty. What if you don’t like the seat when you get in there? But I’m with my wife so no fussing allowed. The seats are new too, big and fancy. Big electric recliners with leather upholstery. I think changing to these chairs must have cut the seating capacity in half. Tickets are now $12.50, but we got a $3 discount for being old. The whole rigamarole of getting tickets and getting inside is annoying, as is the relentless advertising. We did get there 15 minutes early, but it used to be that they would just let you sit in silence, which was kind of nice. But you haven’t paid for that time, so we get to bombard you with an endless onslaught of useless information.
Seat selection definitely favors the regular crowd, I suspect.
