OK, so the Arclight is supposed to be the ultimate in cinema viewing comfort, right? It is nice that you can see the full screen from anywhere in the theater, there's a great selection of movies, and the seats are spacious and soft, but does it bug anyone else that there are no aisles? (At least, not in all the theaters in the complex). The cosiest chair is only so comfortable when people behind you are swinging their long legs right past your ears, because the easiest way to get to their seats is to vault into them from the row behind.
