    Can someone advise me as to where I can get some home theater chairs. I would like to get the ones that are typically seen in the nicer commercial theaters. Is there a web site that offers these at reasonable prices?

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Bill,

    Not sure what your definition of "reasonable" is, but here are a few links:

    Irwin Seating

    Seats and Chairs

    HTMarket

    Electroshops

    Booth Seating

    I purposely stayed away from recliner-type seating as it didn't sound like that is what you are interested in. If you are I can provide you with several links in that area as well.

    I saw some leather recliners that were attachable to each other at Dillard's for $699. I don't know if that is reasonable or not. They were rather comfortable too with cup holders built in to the arms.

    Hey How come you didn't mention my theater sectional. Don't worry I'm not mad no on ever mentions mine.

    Bill*L,
    I am about to toot my own horn....TOOT...TOOT.
    Hey check out the pictures of my seating on my webpage.

    It's just a cheaper alternative to those theater chairs that Chip and James were talking about

    Just my 2 cents

    Bill, also check all your local theaters. They might have some good info for you. I picked mine up for free and gave them a complete overhaul.

    Nice seating Ed [​IMG] One suggestion though. Resize those image files, they are huge and take quite a while to download even with my DSL.


    Peace Out~[​IMG]

    ebay also had quite a selection of regular theater chair seating. I am hoping to get a row of 4 down the road.

    I am quite happy with my Godfather seats from

    www.4seating.com

    But they are made to order, so it takes a while to get them. I don't think they are a big bargain now, especially since LazyBoy has come out with a new line (that includes cupholders) and their prices seem much more reasonable than they were in the past.
    Probably the way I would go to today for comfortable theater furniture of good quality, vs. these specialty HT websites. And you can see them first hand, and be able to lug them home.
    Of course, I am not talking about genuine theater seats, as many of you are into. That is a whole different thing altogether for those with a dedicated HT room.

    I don't see the latest line of LazyBoy on their website. But I remember 'for each' chair prices in the neighborhood of $600 to $1500 as they were advertised locally, depending on options including a power recline system.

    Not sure if this would be what you're looking for, but Ikea has some nice chairs, the POÄNG line. The prices, on the website, by the way, are in Canadian. I'm sure you could find them in US.

    There's another member of the forum (can't remember his/her name) that uses four of these in their front row. You might want to ask them for opinions.

    Hey Bill,

    Here's the LaZBoy line that Dale was refering to:
    (can't post a link yet ... put www in front) lazboy.com/ourfurniture/hometheater.asp

    I got a set of three, no power recline, fabric, for under $1800 ... just to give you an idea. Cupholders are great, chairs are very comfortable.

    Good luck.
