Pre-hot-theatre-date fluff

In the few minutes before my hot date and I leave for dinner before we head off to the theatre, here's some fluff.

plays or live theatre?

What's your seating preference? (Either in live theatre or the movies--I'm no snob)

do you enjoy local theatre? Do you attend the local school productions? I'm speaking of local schools where eithwr your kids don't attend or where they are not involved in the production in any way? What about other live theatre, such as local theatre productions with adult, but amateur actors? (Bea Authur, I know your answer already ;) )

Most recent visit to either kovies or live theatre.

The theatres around here (newish ones) have the wheelchair rows smack dab in the middle -- in the front row of the top section.

Both.  We go to movies more often, but I like theater as well.

I like sitting in the seats with a railing in front of me in the movie theater, so I can put my feet up.  At the theater, I like sitting centralish, but on an aisle, if possible.

I do like local theater, but don't go nearly often enough.

The new Hunger Games movie or DD's performance in the Nutcracker-- can't remember which was more recent.

Oops...I guess that's what I meant by in the front.  It's way, way, way too close to the screen.  There's a theatre near our house that's older (25ish years, I guess) and it has the handicapped seating in a separate balcony in the back of the theatres.  That's much easier to see.  And they let me in free as a caretaker...which I consider compensation for the pain and suffering of having to sit in a folding metal chair.LOL
