Can't speak to Eastgate -- haven't been there in over a year at least, but the seats at Point don't bother me at all. And I already said that the ones at Star are comparable. I had just heard so much about the great seats at Sundance that I was expecting more than just standard, modern movie seats, which is all they are.

Don't need salt. That was not the problem. The problem was that the popcorn sucked. I make better stuff at home in the microwave. Also -- the lobby doesn't smell
like popcorn, which is one of the best things about a theater. I should've mentioned that in the great smells thread...

Those trailers are about minute and a half long, so I don't think your math is very accurate. It is nice not to hear how the theaters are available for your next business meeting, though...
As for your second point -- perhaps you're right. I've only seen the one movie at Sundance, but at that showing they most definitely mentioned not just the concession stand, but also the bistro and wine bar.
