The theaters are fine, modern and clean. It's the other movie-goers that annoy me.
And with reserved seating, you can tell if the theater will be full or empty in advance and plan accordingly.
But the behavior issues are probably geographic to some extend. I don’t get noisy or annoying crowds near me.
Not always as that just shows you what seems have been reserved at that time.
Also in my local theater, I’ve found that unless the theater is full, people tend to not sit in their assigned seats. That or the reserved seating map is wrong.
It still gives you an idea and trends. In my area it seems few people do walk up anymore. They reserve in line ahead of time.
I have never seen a bad map.
As for people not sitting in their reserved seats, I’ve seen little of that. Once again, I live in a pretty civilized area.
Very cool that Wonder Woman 84 will be 4K. Bad thing is I'll be at family's, and they don't have 4K or all that big a TV. I will want to watch it right then, and will have to wait to see it in 4K when I get home.
Or just use the Fire Stick and download hbo max. Use your cable or other credentials to log in.

Especially when you can pay ~$20-~25 (depending on area) for up to 3 movies/week and the premium theaters are included. (AMC A list)
HBO Max Seals Deal With Roku, Making Streaming Distribution Footprint Complete – Deadline
Wish they would create an app for my Vizio Smartcast TV, I hate having to cast from another device.
Same here. I can use my TiVo Stream 4K on that TV, but it would be nice to have a native app. (Could use my Xbox Series X, or PS5 as well, but same deal. Native app on the TV would be very welcome)
Roku app is more reliable than the ATV. Doctor who kept dropping to low definition so I loaded it on the Roku and it stayed in HD.
What’s up with Wonder Woman 1984? It says it should be streaming at 12 AM on December 25, EST. I tried to watch it, but I only got the trailer. So I stay up another hour, figuring because I am on central time it will be available at 12 AM my time. Nope. Just the three minute opening scene in the trailer. I’m pretty disappointed.
9am Pacific. 12PM (Noon) Eastern. Or so sayeth twitter.

Well, according to my AV system it's sending 720p and DD 5.1 instead of 4K and Atmos. I'm not sure the AV player actually knows what the video is, although from what I'm seeing I wouldn't be surprised if it is 720p upscaled by the TV. Unfortunately I can't check for sure because every streaming app disables the TV's Display function, which tells me what format the sound and video is (only Netflix supplies its own version of this). I can't find anything in the HBO Max app to tell it what kind of system I have.
Now I have to wonder if I should watch the bowdlerized version now, or wait for it to arrive at a local theater or on 4K Blu-ray...
I'm getting Dolby Vision and Atmos on my AppleTV 4k.
I'm with you on several counts here... I can't go to indoor rock concerts because they're simply too loud. Imagine I actually walked out of a Springsteen concert about 10-15 years ago at the Meadowlands Arena. Several years later I was able to see him again at Giant's Stadium, for some reason outdoor acoustics work better for me. Broadway has also become a waste of my time and money for similar reasons. And while movie theaters aren't yet overwhelming to me, I can see that eventually being the case.
I also suffer from falling asleep while watching movies or even theater. I fell asleep during HAIR, only to wake up at the point of seeing everyone naked for about half a second and then the lights went completely off. At home, I can always rewind. Lately the only movies we go to in the theater is something that calls for big screen. Star Wars, Star Trek type films, James Bond perhaps, things like that. Otherwise I'll wait for the home theater experience.
I can.... I'll be 64 in April.
These are the only devices that do 4k:
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K and Fire TV Cube
Android TVs, including: AT&T Streaming Box
Apple TV 4K
Google Chromecast Ultra
Chromecast with Google TV (no Atmos audio)
Roku Ultra 4800x, Roku 4k TVs,
Roku Premiere and Roku Streaming Stick+ (No Dolby Vision HDR or Atmos)
Xfinity X1 (Xi6) and Flex
It took my Vizio Smartcast TV about a minute to go from 480p to 4k.
I have an Android TV, and it's not getting 4K or Atmos. For kicks, I downloaded a bootleg copy, and it's showing up as both 4K and Atmos (and you can really see the difference!).
Half way through and it’s as bad as the reviews say it is.
At least it’s free with my HBO subscription.
Dolby Vision & 4K out of the Sony 85X950H Android TV HBO MAX app.
Major shame there's no filter to make the movie have a good story, though.
