hi guys

I'm meant to go to see the new Iron Man film on Sunday but I have heard that the d-box seats (that move etc) are not safe during pregnancy....

My question is... can you turn them off? I don't want to be sitting on my own! confused

ring the cinima and ask! why are they not safe? do they really move that much? (never tried one)
enjoy the film

ooh whats a d box seat?? I have been to see Iron Man in 3d and tbh it wasn't very 3d at all, wish we'd saved the cash and gone 2D! same with Star Trek last night actually, not very 3d at all.

I did end up calling the cinema and apparently they move quite a lot and vibrate throughout the film. the main reason they gave me was that it hasn't been tested with pregnant women so they deem it unsafe 'to be safe'!
he said you can turn them down or completely off,it is £16 per ticket so it seems a bit silly to spend that but all my friends are going as a group and I don't want to make DP sit in a different place just to keep me company lol
Better be good! x
