(Newser) – With stadium seating in many theaters, these days you can get a good view from pretty much anywhere. So how do you choose where to sit? You may want to make your decision based on sound, says Holly Frey in a BrainStuff video. The best spot, according to Frey: in the middle of a row some two-thirds of the way back, the Smithsonian reports.
