Survival Japanese: Getting movie tickets

Watching movies in Japan is expensive. The good thing is, many of the theaters these days have 指定席 'shi tei seki' (reserved seating).
Still, in order to get a good seat, you should come in advance with plenty of money.Getting a ticket at a theater

When referring to tickets, paper, or things that are generally thin, the counter 枚 'mai' is used.

For instance
一枚 ichi mai 1
二枚 ni mai 2
三枚 san mai 3
四枚 yon mai 4
五枚 go mai 5
六枚 roku mai 6
七枚 na na mai 7
八枚 hachi mai 8
九枚 kyu mai 9
十枚 ju mai 10

Also, when the ticket sales person asks where you would like to sit, you can use the directional 方 ’hou'

For instance
前の方 mae no hou In the front
後ろの方 ushiro no hou In the back
右の方 migi no hou On the right
左の方 hidari no hou On the left
