WOW! just F---ing WOW, stunning. They should donate those old seats to the prison system and require catheterized, shackled, recidivist, prisoners to a week of an uninterrupted diet of Scotch eggs and Mountain Dew. They would not be back.
They can't afford to put in all new seats but it is in the plans for the future. They sorted through the seats, tossed or gave away the really nasty ones, cleaned and repaired the best. New seats in the new theaters but old seats for now in the main area. We are hoping that happens sooner rather than later but it will be a bit.
