Those 20 people no longer have the opportunity to go catch a big blockbuster when they had the chance.
Those 20 people are money lost for production studios and, assuming they buy concessions, a lost source of revenue for theaters.
I bought AMC A-list so I don’t have to deal with that as much anymore.
Problem is that a lot of people are non confrontational so if they see someone in their seats rather than say anything they'll go get a manager then it becomes a whole thing..pass_color_to_child_links a.u-inline.u-margin-left--xs.u-margin-right--sm.u-padding-left--xs.u-padding-right--xs.u-relative.u-absolute.u-absolute--center.u-width--100.u-flex-inline.u-flex-align-self--center.u-flex-justify--between.u-serif-font-main--regular.js-wf-loaded .u-serif-font-main--regular.amp-page .u-serif-font-main--regular.u-border-radius--ellipse.u-hover-bg--black-transparent.web_page .u-hover-bg--black-transparent:hover. Content Header .feed_item_answer_user.js-wf-loaded . I don't find the escalated ticket price for "luxury" really worth the hassle (talk about first world problems). Here's why: showing up late distracts everyone else trying to watch the movie.Reserved seating also means that people will purposely show up late because they know they have a certain seat. You have to find your seats and crawl (sort of) over people only to realize you forgot the alphabet and end up in the wrong row.Along with the late arrivals, reserved seating creates a lot of friction with movie goers, and no one wants do deal with that when they're just trying to have a good time.I've experienced problems as a movie-goer and as a movie theater employee. Finally, theaters with the reserved luxury seating sell out much quicker, because there are less seats." from a guy a few seats down, which then had the effect of making everyone around us laugh).Anyway, I feel like I see this every single time I go to a reserved seating show.I didn't get the big deal; we were the only four people for the whole movie, but man, did the second guy put up a fight. So one row of luxury seating takes away the potential for around 20 more people.As an employee, sometimes I get complaints about it from customers like the second man. This is really where the problems of losing money comes from in regard to reserved seating.
