Where to Sit in the Movie Theater for the Best Experience, Falco, Alabama

When you walk into the movie theater and see empty seats, it’s tough to decide where to sit. The seat you choose will have a significant impact on your movie-viewing experience, including how comfortable you are, how good the sound is, and whether you have a clear view of the screen.

FAQ About Where to Sit in a Movie Theater

How close is too close?

The front row is often the last to fill up in a theater because sitting too close is uncomfortable. You can strain your neck looking up too high, and you may have trouble seeing everything on the screen if you’re too close. For your comfort, sit where your vertical view is over 35°. This means you shouldn’t feel like you’re raising your chin when you’re looking at the top of the screen.

How far is too far?

movie-theater-Andalusia-ALThe purpose of seeing a movie in the theater is to have a cinematic experience on the big screen — one that you can’t get at home. If you sit too far back, the screen will look smaller in your view and may reduce that immersive experience. When you’re looking at the screen, the width of the screen should take up at least 36° of your view. In most theaters, this means being at least a few rows in front of the back row.

Where is the sound best?

Sound is complicated in a theater. How the sound waves bounce off the wall will depend on how many people are in the room, the shape of the theater, and the location of the speakers. However, in most theaters, the best spot for audio is around two-thirds of the way back and in the center of the room.

Which seats are the first to sell out?

The first seats in the theater to fill up tend to be the best. Pay attention to where people sit. In most cases, the first seats filled are in the center of the room. These provide the best sound and screen-viewing angle. Arrive early to claim the best seat in the house.
