Webster Place is now ALL reserved seating. This policy began about two months ago according to the ticket agent. So people buy their tickets online in advance, and hold the good seats before they ever arrive. Walk-ins must choose from whatever is left. Had to take two on the far left side aisle for “Gone Girl”. The auditorium was empty until 5 minutes before start time.
Source now confirmed as the John Chuckman Collection.
