Georgetown Hoyas to have 'actual reality' seating without cell phones for St. John's game


The Georgetown Hoyas are trying something different for their upcoming basketball game against the St. John's Red Storm by returning to a time where technology wasn't so prevalent and utilized. An "actual reality" seating section will be offered in the Capital One Arena for the Jan. 20 matchup.

But fans seeking a seat in that area have to leave their cell phones behind, as the devices are not allowed.

"Next Saturday, unplug and enjoy @GeorgetownHoops vs. St John's in our 'Actual Reality' seating section!" a tweet stated with "welcome to reality" posted in a graphic on the Hoyas official Twitter page.

In addition to the cell phone restriction in that section, paper tickets (no e-tickets) are available and have to be picked up at a will-call window from a "live person."

Name tags will also be available in an effort to spur face-to-face interaction between fans.

Halftime stats will be printed on paper and delivered by a "human," the tweet states. Moreover, the section will have a photo station with a Polaroid camera along with a letter/postcard writing station.
