You'd think that all this sounds cozy, but it takes some getting used to. Normal cinemas get you prepped with low lights, cheesy commercials, and those familiar chairs, which have held your butt through moments emotional, hilarious, and horrifying. You don't realize how much nostalgia arrives with the whole experience until you find the future is made of swivel chairs.
Likewise in a normal theatre, the fewer people there, the more exclusive it feels. At this cinema, all seats are truly equal -- but you do want to have a few more people in the room just to create a buzzy atmosphere. We were definitely missing that, as it was an early showing, and my boyfriend and I were alone except for another woman.
