This came up today as my Wife, daughter and myself went to see "Happy Feet"...
We arrived a half-hour early to insure we got good seats.
We were first in to the theatre and took center seats right above the handicap area. This insures no ones head will be in your way. It's not much of an issue as the theatre in Danbury CT has gone to seating that is almost as steep as IMAX seating.
At near movie time a couple we know (with kids in tow) showed up and they asked us to move down several seats so their group of five could sit together.
Now, we had choice seats and had been in the theatre for half an hour already. This family showed up just before show time (well, show time is 20 minutes after stated show time) and asked us to move out of our choice seats so they could have them.
There were three of us and two seats on my left were open and three on our right. That makes five seats. There were also five seat sections available of "less choice" seats.
My wife said we should move over but I said no. I would have moved over one seat but not two. Two seats would have pushed us from direct center to "off to the left" which would have entailed some neck twisting AND there would have been seats in front of us.
So, was I being a dick for not moving or should I have moved?
Remember, this is opening weekend for this movie and each showing had been sold out. We were planning to hit the earlier showing but it was sold out so we bought tickets for the next show and left for a while.
