I asked and at this time Sundance does not currently have any plans to play midnight movies.

I'm almost certain you're right about Madison's first Orpheum being on Monona Ave.
Unless my memory is letting me down in unprecedented ways, the McVicar photo is in Zane Williams' rephotography book Double Take. I'll look it up in my copy.

And this is the post I was referring to when I said your suggestion that people change seats AFTER the movie has started is absurd. Do you understand why? Because the movie has already started! Do you think there is nothing interesting going on in a movie 15 minutes into it? Even if you're willing to miss it while you are stumbling around looking for another seat, the people that you excuse yourself by will be PISSED.
This might be another problem caused by the reserved seating: people showing up late to the movie. Without reserved seats you need to show up on time and better yet very early to ensure you get good seats. If you have reserved seats you might be more likely to saunter in at the last minute and maybe not time it right and show up late - again, pissing people off. Just a theory but I'd be interested if anyone has noticed this at Sundance.
