seat recommendations at U23D

I was wondering where people would suggest sitting at U23D.
ie "Front has a better view or strains your neck, as well as spot specific for Bono fans vs Edge fans, etc.
Does it matter even? I know it will be great but do different parts of the theater have different experiences?

This is more of a general comment, so please don't think I'm picking on you, tripletmom, but ...

... do we really need so many threads about the movie? Can we merge all of these?

It's been my experiences for IMAX flicks that the middle is where you want to be. Never seen a 3D movie, though, so I don't know if that makes a difference.

I was thinking of this too.
When there is a major release upcoming, we should have 1 official thread thats stickied.

We'll be needing one for whatever the new remaster is soon.

i've seen it on the Imax and I sat in the last row in the direct center and it was fantastic, but maybe 2 rows up would have been good too.

You have reserved seats? Weird. I've never seen a movie theater with reserved seats.

Was that a recommendation of where to sit, or just a bunch of poorly typed netspeak?

How Long?

Merge if you like to as I know there are a few threads out there but I just wanted to know how long the U23D film is?? I read somewhere that it is only 55min and misses many of the classic u2 songs and includes others (i know of atleast 9 or 10 songs that will be in there but i will not mention which ones just in case people here want it to be a surprise) and then I read about those highschool kids getting a preview and they said 84 minutes of "sround sound and eye candy". Does anyone know what is the running time for the film? I am really hopings it is more then just 55 minutes!

There was an advance screening last year at the Cannes Film Festival which was about 55 minutes. The actual running time of the movie is about 85 minutes.
Don't know the setlist though. Even at 85 minutes it's of course too short!
