We are usually taken to our seats and so you have no idea of where you will be seated. We ended right underneath the speakers and while we had an excellent view the incredibly loud volume during the transition between scenes made me wish I brought ear plugs. So look up when you get to your seat and ask for a different seat if you are next to the speakers. Some of you may not mind and that's ok too. Have fun.
