Perhaps you'll be off to the movie theater this weekend instead of sitting on teh couch, in your PJs and binging on a program. So if you’re going to to through the trouble of putting on outside pants and leaving your house, you might as well make the most of your experience, starting with picking a good seat in the theater. But where exactly is that? Based on the way most theaters are set up, it will be two-thirds of the way back, in the center of the row. That's what a THX engineer suggest. Technicians test the sound and video quality in an under-construction theater by taking microphone measurements from several spots in the seats. While the goal is to make the experience the best for every seat in the house, the closer you can get to where they tested, the better your seats will be. This typically means you’ll want to be in the center of the row, about two-thirds of the way back from the screen.
