    My buddy is looking at a new place. He has a room that is roughly 14'x29' He is looking to put a 10' screen with two rows of four seating. He has the length and the width for that size screen I feel, but at most he has 9' ceilings. Do you think that is too low of a ceiling to put a second elevated row? I figure that would leave roughly 7.25' of clearence.

    Hi Tim,

    At that length he could probably put in a third row of seating. My ceiling is only eight feet high and I have a second row of seating that is roughly 8" higher than the first row. Have a look at my pics. There's lots of space for tall people in my theatre [​IMG]

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    It may not be... psychologically comfortable, but as long as you've got, say, 6'6" above the floor, you should be okay. After all, it's not as though you're going to have people standing back there, except to get into the seats.

    I think as far as ceiling height goes he will be alright. My concern is trying to put 4 seats across 14'of width. I have 13'3" and just make 3 recliners fit with about 20" to walk past. My front row has 2 sets of love seats. I guess it depends on what type of seats are going in the rows. My third row has 5 traditional theater seats. Look at my pictures--link below.
