Loews Reserved Seating

Has anyone tried reserved seating at Loews theaters? Is it worth the extra $5?

The Cinerama/Dome Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood are all reserved seating. It's about the only place I go now for a film. You can go online anytime before you want to see a movie and click, buy, and print your seats, as well as pick location. Then you can show up 5 minutes before the flick begins and just walk right in and your seats are waiting for you. Plus it's all stadium seating with the big, comfy seats. No more worries about getting to the theater early, waiting in line to get a good center seat and then some really tall schmo with a big hairdo shows up and blocks your view of the screen. It's really great when a big movie is coming out, you can go online way in advance and get great seats reserved for the opening night. No worries about movies being sold out by the time you get to the theatre. Well worth the extra couple of bucks to me.

There is a film I am going to see tonight that has had every screen at this theater sold out since it opened yesterday. But I have great center seats for the 7:45 pm performance that I bought in advance online a week ago.

I did this once at Loews...it certainly was roomy and very comfortable, and was a fun thing to try, but I don't think it's worth the extra $5, and don't plan to do it again anytime soon.

I've got to echo danielhart's response.

We use reserved seating all the time, and we love it. We don't tend to make it to the theaters except for big 'event' movies like Harry Potter or Spider-Man 2, and the fact that you can buy your tickets days early and not have to worry about getting there early to get a decent seat is definitely worth the extra $5 to us. If it's a movie that's been out for a few weeks, we'll go with the regular seats, but otherwise it's VIP for us. We always go to matinees, too, so the cost isn't too high.

They're opening a new theatre in my town next week, and one of the theatres has reserved seating. Seems cool for the big movies, but not worth it for regular movies. I think it is $2 more for a ticket in the theatre with reserved seating than the regular theatres.

Misread this one at first. I was thinking, why would anyone want to reserve a seat at Lowes? Where would it be? Lumber?

Couple reserved seating with a "no one under 21 permitted" policy and I'd pay $10 extra!

Whoever would implement such a policy deserves to have their balls chewed by rabid dogs.

Is it $5 per ticket or per order. I would do the per order when going with another couple, but $5 per ticket seems steep.

The reserved ticket costs $13.99 and the standard adult ticket costs $8.99.

The UMF strikes again!

I just signed up for a reserved seat at Loews Jersey Gardens for Spider-Man 2 on Sunday. Of course, after the concessions and NJ Turnpike tolls, this'll cost me $25 for a matinee, but it's Spider-Man 2! (I normally wouldn't go anywhere near that mall after 12 noon.)

Thanks for the tip.

The ticket was $9.25, plus $1 Fandango service charge. The matinee is normally $5.75. So this is a $4.50 premium.

Alamo Drafthouse cinema here in Austin has a "no one under 21 permmitted" policy. That's because alcohol is served there.

Why?


I don't go to movies very often anymore because of the rabid, vapid teenie-boppers who can't/won't shutup during a movie. I'd pay $10 extra to not have to deal with screaming babies and gum-smacking teenagers while I try to watch a movie.

One more question: any trouble with getting your seat? I have Detroit Lions season tickets, and 50% of the games I have to kick someone out of my seat.

I'd like drinking during a movie, but I'm not so sure I'd like some of the other people drinking too. Are the people in the Alamo Drafthouse well-behaved?

Um, do these squatters actually put up a fight? Do they just leave when you ask politely, or do you need to get the cops involved?

Believe me, if someone's in my $10.25 seat, I'll be bitching to management pronto.

I've only been there once, but they were indeed well behaved. Having no children there really made the room quieter and easier to watch to the movie.

If you are ever in L.A., check out the 21+ screenings at the Arc Light in Hollywood.

I'm against all age-based restrictions. By implementing such a policy, you'd get rid of the troublemakers, but you'd also eliminate the movie experience for many people who want to sit and watch the movie quietly. You'd also not get rid of troublemakers over 21, so the policy would be useless.

A policy like that would also be pretty much the same as implementing one that banned people of a certain race from going to a movie.
