My sources in Fort Worth tell me that they like Rave theaters (which are all under a decade old, as the chain was founded in 1999. Patrons particularly like the retractable armrests which can be pulled back for couples who want to cuddle or strangers who don't want to rub elbows with each other. 

Here's Rave's link for the Bridge and for the Showcase Ritz.

What amenities do you want in your moviegoing experience? Consider this an open thread to tell the folks at Rave what you'd like to see happen at these theaters. Me? I'd like The Bridge to upgrade its concession stand to include healthier choices.
