Christopher Nolan’s Favorite Seats in a Movie Theater Are in the Front

  • Christopher Nolan revealed his favorite place to sit at the movies in an interview with the Associated Press.
  • It’s the third row from the front.
  • Nolan shared his unusual taste in theater seating while promoting his latest film, “Oppenheimer.”

Christopher Nolan has an unusual idea of where the best seats in the house are when you go see “Oppenheimer.”

While promoting his film about the creator of the atomic bomb, Nolan shared with the Associated Press his favorite place to sit when he goes to the movies: up in the front.

“I like to be right near the front, middle of the third row,” the Oscar-nominated director of “Inception” and “Interstellar” said.

If he sees a movie in IMAX, Nolan said he likes to move a bit farther back to mid-way up in the dead center of the theater. 

Of course, Nolan said, it all comes down to personal preference.

Nolan’s latest film “Oppenheimer” is one of his most technically ambitious yet. The entire movie was filmed on large film stock, meaning it can be projected at IMAX resolution for the roughly 3-hour runtime.

“You’re really letting the screen disappear,” Nolan told the AP. “You’re getting a feeling of 3D without the glasses. You’ve got a huge screen and you’re filling the peripheral vision of the audience. You’re immersing them in the world of the film.”

The upcoming biopic stars frequent Nolan collaborator Cillian Murphy as J. Robert Oppenheimer, the physicist who oversaw the Manhattan Project that created the atomic bomb during World War II. For the movie, Nolan and his team even recreated the famed Trinity Test, the first detonation of a nuclear weapon, using practical effects.

“Oppenheimer” will release on July 21 — the same day as Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie’s “Barbie.”
