Main Question or Discussion Point

Have you ever been to a movie theater where there are seats that are out of view to the movie? A Regal Cinema near me has a couple of seats that are like that. If you sit in one of them you totally can't see the movie. What were they thinking when they put those seats in?

Wow, I'm not sure why a theater would be built like that...maybe they're seats for blind people?

I went to a baseball game once and ended up in a seat with an obstructed view. I asked the usher if she could do anything; she moved us to the wheelchair seating, since no one was there. She said it was against the rules to do that, but did it anyway...that was nice of her o:).

I hope they at least sell those seats at a discount!

Many years ago, on a weekend visit to New York, I went to the Metropolitan Opera box office on Friday morning, hoping to get tickets for one of the weekend performances. They didn't even have any standing-room tickets left, but they did offer me a partial-view seat at a discount. It turned out to be on the side of the hall, in the frontmost box of (I think) the first level down from the top. The near side of the proscenium blocked my view of about one third of the stage, but I could see the other two thirds very well, plus I could look almost straight down into the orchestra pit. Fortunately, most of the best parts of the action were on the part of the stage that I could see, and of course I could hear everything.

If there are any opera buffs out there, it was Brittten's "Peter Grimes" with Jon Vickers in the title role. It was one of his signature roles, and I think it may have been the last season he performed it. Great experience.
