If you didn't head out to the Bozeman Regal Cinemas this past weekend to see the latest blockbuster, you may not be aware that something has changed if you're attending a local movie: you will now have assigned seating.

Just like going to a ball game or a concert, your movie ticket now has seat numbers. This is now in effect for every movie big and small.

Tickets and seat choices are available with your online movie ticket purchase or at the theater box office. It appears that prices are the same for all seats in the theater no matter where you choose to sit.

The good news is you won't have to get to the theater two hours early to find a seat at the next kids superhero movie. But you will also probably need to get your tickets early so that you get a seat you like.
