I Picked My Seat November 6, 2013Posted by Retired Geezer in Crime, Entertainment.
At the Movie.
We went to a brand new theater last night to see Captain Phillips.
I was surprised when the guy at the box office spun the computer around and told me to pick my seat. Since there were only 4 seats taken, I chose two that were away from everybody.
Just before the movie started, 4 people came in and sat down one chair away from us… Really?
I don’t know about you but I like to check out the crowd and sit away from chattering teens and people that I figure will be annoying.
This theater is in a new upscale shopping center. The seats were leather and reclined but the projectionist had the image too low in the frame and it cut off half of the subtitles. The movie was OK but it had entirely too much Extreme Close-Up and hand-held camera shake. Mrs. Geezer was getting nauseous toward the end of the movie. The admission was $10, I wish we would have waited to see it at the $2 theater.
How does this compare with your recent movie-going experiences?
