As a general rule, I like to sit about 3/4 of the way back.

Ideally, the I should be able to see the entire screen without moving my eyes, yet not have any of the screen off to the side in my peripheral vision.  In most theaters, that works out to be about 3/4 of the way back.  Then I can just sit still (something I'm very good at  Wink) and allow myself to be immersed in the film's universe.

If I find that I have to sit on either side, then I sit closer to the screen so that the opposite side of the screen is about the same distance as if I sat in the middle of the row.

When "Labyrinth" came out, we got to the theater late and the only seats available were in the front row.  My neck hurt for a week after that.  Since then the only time I've ever sat near the front was when I took my sister, who had never seen the movie (despite having been to the concert!), to see Pink Floyd's "The Wall".  Once again, it was due to a packed theater.  Fortunately, since I have seen the film about 100 times, I pretty much closed my eyes and just listened to it instead of hurting my neck again.

When I was a kid I used to love sitting as far back as possible.  Then we could throw popcorn or shoot spitballs and never get caught, because everyone else's back was to us!  TeddyR  We were also closest to the exits that way.

The balcony was always good for that! Not that I would ever do such a thing.... Wink

A friend of mine and his wife got stuck right up in front of the screen about 3 rows back  for a showing of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and his wife literally got sea sick with all of the shakey cam stuff and they had to leave. I think she ended up hurling in the bathroom afterwards.

In the middle, but definitely not next to the Death Cat.  TeddyR

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
