    Our regular theatres are first come first serve, but you can pay for the upgraded theatre which has assigned seating. Worth the extra $3 each time so I can buy the seats I want and don't have to line up an hour before hand to get a good seat. Anyone is assigned seats is asked to move, and if they refuse, theatre staff move them along since they can't produce a ticket for those seats

    I guess I just dont understand the allure of it. Unless I religiously went to the same theater 24/7 and knew exactly what seats to pick every time. But im also one of those people that like a little personal space. Ive sat next to enough people who chit chat through the whole thing, check their cellphones throughout or dont believe in personal hygiene, to not want to get stuck next to a complete stranger..
    But ive also encountered a lot of people who are extremely defensive about it being the best thing ever to happen to movie theaters.

    We like it cos we can book way in advance for opening night movies and sit where we want without the wait in the line up. We tend to go opening nights. Second last row, middle of the theatre Once a movie has been out a few weeks though, we don't bother since there's generally no line to get in

    Notre Dame is overrated. They are always overrated and always will be in my opinion. But on another, a couple who live a few doors down from us are die-hard Notre Dame fans, and they are going on about how Clemson, the refs, and the committee cheated because they wanted an Alabama/Clemson rematch.

    On another note, the Alabama/Oklahoma game proved why the Heisman needs to be awarded after all games are played...including semi-finals and the NC game.

    ehh i dont think one game should determine who the heisman goes too, kyler murray i still believed deserved it this year. I do believe notre dame played their cards right as far as their schedule went, and going undefeated in that schedule. But im still torn on whether they should have let georgia or ohio state in over them. I was really pulling for oklahoma though.
    im neither a clemson nor bama fan, i probably wont watch the game, ive seen it four times already.....
    i can hope for an expansion of the playoffs simply cause i think it would bring a little more excitement to the game again IMO. and no im not one of "those" ucf fans who thought we should have been included, i just wish ucf would push to move conferences already come next realignment

    That (ND fans contention that the game was rigged bc everyone wanted a Bama/Clemson rematch) is stupid on so many levels that the mind just boggles from the stupidness of it all.
    Like I can’t even process it.

    #1- No one wants a Clemson/Bama re-match! Most of the country is beyond sick of seeing those 2 teams in the playoffs/NC game! Most of the country hated that the NC game last year was two SEC teams. TV likes interest and excitement! I’d venture to say ND got in the playoffs in some part bc they added some geographic/fan base diversity to the mix.
    #2 ND got its a$$ literally handed to them on a plate. They were thoroughly beaten in all aspects. The refs could have all gone out for dinner during the game and the outcome wouldn’t have changed.
    I love how fans justify things in their mind. I mean, I get it. I’m a UGA fan and I blame the tragic, close losses we suffered last year in the NC game and this year in the SEC championship game to the fact that Nick Saban has sold his soul to the devil. ;)

    oh yay another UGA fan! I thought I was the only one on here. Everyone I know if is sick of seeing Clemson/ Alabama ( mostly Alabama) in the NC game, but until Saban retires..or dies...whichever happens first they will always be in the final four most likely.

    bottom line if you really sit down and look at the numbers his stats showed otherwise, even Haskins had better stats then Tua.

    I think its more of the fact you are anti-sec football. At the end of the day a heisman winning qb once again lost to a sec team during the post season.

    I don't think it has anything to do with being anti-SEC. I'm as anti-OU as they come and even I whole-heartedly agree with the decision, without hesitation. One game doesn't make or break a player and I don't think the playoffs would have altered that decision much, if at all. Stats don't lie.

    im not anti sec, i actually love auburn football, and a slight lsu fan. But kyler murray deserved the heisman, the facts and stats speak for themselves. You cant sit there and say screw the stats and the entire season, and base your decision on one game. Im not saying tua isnt great, cause he actually is a phenomenal player. But that doesnt mean alabama should be handed everything, because of who they are and their winning record.
    heisman is awarded to the best overall player of the season, it shouldnt be based off playoff games or one game being the deciding factor...
