where you sit depends on several things [In reply to] Can't Post

If you are seeing it in 3D HFR:
1. If it's a large room with one of those newer huge screens, you certainly don't want to sit close. You want to be able to see the entire screen without having to turn your head. I usually prefer sitting in the upper half of the seating area...but not way up near the top, which is too far away for me.
2. If it's a smaller room with one of those newer huge screens (which I have been into lately), then you'll want to sit quite far back just for the previously mentioned reason. To me there's nothing worse than not being able to see everything that's going on onscreen all at once.
3. I always like to sit as close to center as possible, particularly if the movie is 3D.

If you are seeing it in 2D:
1. Generally you can sit closer to the screen, but I'd recommend sitting far enough away to see the entire screen.
2. Sitting as close to center as possible makes for a better visual experience, I think.

Anyway, that's my take on seating choices. I think where you sit matters more if it's 3D, not so much in 2D, but it's largely a matter of where you feel most comfortable in relation to the screen.
