We were on the Fantasy in February and did not watch a movie in the theatre at all but REALLY enjoyed the movies that were shown after the Pirates in the Caribbean deck party late at night on the Funnelvision...something about sitting out under the stars that made it really special (of course it WAS Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow on the big screen!)

I would probably watch more movies on the Magic and Wonder if the seats were more comfy. There just isn't enough leg room so DH and I sit on folding chairs in the back. And no, we aren't giants, but not every passenger is built like a dwarf either. I really hope they re-do the movie theatres during the upcoming refurbs.

On my 4-night Bahamas cruises, I watched movies on Nassau and Castaway Cay afternoons. DCL had very few adult activities onboard while the ship was in port, and movies saved my afternoons.

We typically go late in the evening also - after dinner and stage shows are over (unless there is a prim-ear at sea at TWD theatre)

I went to "the late show" on the last night of our cruise. It was a nice way to wind down the evening.

I am a giant (6 ft 6 in) and the rows are terribly close in the Buena Vista Theater on the Magic and Wonder. I have actually sat on the front row before for more leg room. Haven't lately.

The seats on the Fantasy are better, but the backs move so when someone sits in front of you, they may be sitting in your lap (not really) but the back does come back a ways and MAY press up close to your knees.

I'm an insomniac, so when I took my family on the Magic back in 2011, I went to the late show every evening, even if I had already seen the movie, so as not to disturb them by watching tv or having a light on to read.

We also went as a family to an afternoon showing during one of the sea days, as it was grey and gloomy out, and I think the only other activity at that time was bingo or scrapbooking.
