    I'm gonna go watch the Hobbit on Wednesday and I'm wondering if "Dbox" is worth the money. Dbox costs about eight dollars extra per seat and I'm not crazy about paying for "gimmicks." In fact, I hate watching movies in 3D. Is the Dbox just another gimmick to pump money from movie-goers or does it actually enhance the whole movie going experience?

    What is Dbox you might ask (I know I did)... here is a youtube link.

    Wow, I've always had to pay much more to go to the movies and hit up a dbox.

    Totally worth it, tho.

    In all seriousness, u should do it at least once. (I don't even know wtf it is, btw)

    $8 to try something new is most always worth it. My advice is do it.

    Never heard of it, but it kind of looks like the seats they have in the theme park "adventure" theatres though and I always thought those were pretty cool. I don't know exactly how much fun/value they would be with movies that aren't designed specifically for it, but what the hell, I'm with PKM.....give it a whirl....and come back here and rant/rave about it.

    They should just put a bunch of mechanical bulls in a room with a screen and call it a theatre. I'll watch The Hobbit while riding a mechanical bull any day of the week.

    The D stands for douche. So yeah, go pay extra to sit in the Douche-Box, that way everyone else will know to leave you alone.

    The only advantage I see is that it looks like you'll get your own arm rests and some leg room, so maybe it is worth it.

    Seems distracting and annoying to me. The Hobbit in 3D/48FPS is enough for me.

    A douche box is a ***** and I'm "in" so basically I'm about to **** that *****, but you gotta put a ring on it first.

    Ok

    I didn't realize it was just like 3 rows amongst all the normal others:

    [video=youtube;Apc8OU98r54]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Apc8OU98r54[/video]


    That **** would be really annoying if you sitting above that section and maybe below depending on how much noise it makes.
