Nice seat! I was exactly a row behind that for TDK in August.

It was more of a "$80 is well worth it to see the live q&a but maybe not just the films alone" tone. If I hadn't just seen TDK in IMAX, this would be a lot more appealing.
Oh, I definitely agree. Like I said, the Nolan session would be epic and well worth $80 to experience live.
Otherwise, I don't know how they can justify charging more than $50 from a value standpoint. Obviously, supply & demand kick in here and you can see they will fill up the seats for this limited engagement, but it's a value principle here that is being ignored when Nolan isn't actually appearing here.
And I was thinking of choosing one row back, as well. I just didn't want to be slightly under the overhang that the projector room is in, and I can't remember if that row is under it or not. Not that it cuts off the screen, but it does take me out of the immersion only slightly if it's in my peripheral view. Anywhere around the center and in the back four rows are the sweet spot for me, though.
What an amazing day. We also got little souvenirs: an itinerary badge and a thick metallic batarang encased in its own little box.
The Nolan Q&A was very "meh." It was just somebody interviewing him (Pete Hammond, to be precise) for twelve minutes in front of the LA audience. I thought the fans maybe got to ask questions and interact with him, but nah.
TDK looks spellbinding in IMAX. My Blu-ray is shit compared to it lol.
The fans ate up the entire trilogy. Unfortunately I had a guy next to me mouthing all the lines and gesturing everything from everybody; equally as sadly, I knew the cues as well as he did, but just didn't mimic them as the movie went.
