Thumbs down AMC LOEWS

Recently, I had one of the worst experiences of my life at a Loews movie theater.  I hardly ever go to the movies as I don't have the time.  However, recently I was finally able to get out a bit and went to go see American Sniper.  When we purchased our tickets, the cashier informed us to choose our seats.  Choose our seats? I was confused.  She showed me the lay out of the theater and showed me which seats were still available.  I felt as though I was inTimes Square, Manhattan purchasing tickets to a Broadway Show.  Unfortunately, the only seats that were available was the first row.  Reluctantly, we purchased the tickets.  When we sat down, I started to regret our decision.  Before the movie started, a woman got up next to me and told me that she has to relinquish her seat as she could not take it anymore.  As we watched the movie, I felt a little too close and I felt I was part of the movie.  Since the main character was mostly fighting in Iraq, I didn't want to be that close and become part of that scene.  I was a trooper and made it through that exhilarating movie, but came out very stiff.  I don't see why they had to create assigned seats.  Thumbs down, Loews. I will not go back to that particular movie theater anytime soon.
