Anyway, the Austin Drafthouses implemented a reserved-seating policy back in 2012, and I came across the announcement on their site. The butthurt comments from people (that boil down to "I don't like change!") are hilarious. I especially like one long comment, during the course of which the person complains that they don't want to reserve a seat and possibly have to sit next to someone they don't want to sit next to.
Um. Like you do when you buy a ticket at the theatre and walk in and pick a seat and someone sits next to you?
Anyway, if you like reading about people complaining that they can't walk into the theatre and grab a good seat right before the show starts anymore because the seats will have all been bought up by people who reserved the seats online, go for it!
