So you managed to book tickets to your favorite star’s movie? But are those the best seats in the house? No, we’re not talking about how much you paid for the tickets, if its the balcony or the stall, sofa seats or not. Where you sit matters because a central location will not only ensure the most direct view and best surround experience but will also save your neck.
So which is the best seat in the house? About two thirds of the way back, as close to the center as possible.
This may sound a bit vague, but it’s based on how engineers calibrate a theater’s sound system. And if you missed out on those seats the next best option is to get a seat near the center of a row in order to maintain audio and visual symmetry, and then move forward towards the screen.
