WASHINGTON (WJLA) - The Georgetown Hoyas are trying something different for their upcoming basketball game against the St. John's Red Storm by returning to a time when 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 cellphones 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 cellphone 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.
