Q1: Are the new chairs comfortable and durable?
A: Absolutely. The new chairs we sell are engineered and designed with movie viewing in mind, they are made to be comfortable and durable. Our theater chairs are the exact same chairs that are currently being installed in the state-of-the-art movie theaters of today. Think about this: A public theater can show 3 or 4 viewing of a movie every day. Think about how much 'abuse' a chair has to be designed to withstand, much more than any home chair! Our chairs are engineered and designed to give you years of beauty, function and comfort!

Q2: Are your chairs really the same as the chairs actually in the movie theaters?
A: Yes, our new chairs are the exact same makes and models of the chairs found in the finest theaters in the United States, and the world! Most new theater seats share these features: 1. A built in cup holder in the chairs armrest. 2. A shared arm in between each seat. 3. A flip up seat cushion

Q3: How much is shipping?
A: This depends on the weight of the model of chair, the number of chairs ordered and your location. Call us for a shipping quote.

Q4: Any discount if I buy more than one chair?
A: If you are interested in buying 12 or more chairs then we do offer a discount.

Q5: Do you deal with professional interior designers?
A: Yes, we welcome interior designers. Please call us at 727-798-6949 or email us at WholesaleTheaterSeating@gmail.com if you would like to up an account or ask any questions. A customer service rep will be assigned to you.

Q6: Can you coordinate and work with my professional interior designer? Can I have my interior designer contact you?
A: Yes, we would be more than happy to work closely with your personal interior designer, to make sure you get the results you want. We are very familiar with many suppliers to the Professional Interior Designer trade.

Q7: I am going to have more than one row of seats in my home theater. Should the first row of seating be made up of low back chairs?
A: If your theater room has a flat/ level floor, throughout the whole room, then yes, a front row of low back seats will offer a better view of the movie screen for the people sitting in the back rows. That being said, another factor is the height of the bottom of 9your screen. See our "Tools" page, or call us at 727-798-6949 with more help with determining which chair height will work in your room.

Q8: I want steps or risers in my theater, so that the rows of seats will be at different height levels.
Is a low back chair in the front row necessary? What should be heights of the risers?

A: No, a low back front row is not necessary. Depending on the height of the risers, (4 to 12 inches between levels works nice) you can have high back chairs in the front and back rows. See our "Tools" page, it contains a helpful diagram. Tools Page

Q9: What is the warranty on new chairs?
A: 5-year manufacturers warranty against any defects.

Q10: How do I pay?
A: We take Credit Cards (Visa and Master Card), Checks, Money Orders and PayPal.

Q11: What new colors can be ordered for new chairs with no extra charge? What are the standard colors that do not incur additional cost?
A: Please see the actual item descriptions on our web site pages. Most solid colors, black, red, green, blue etc. are considered standard colors and are available at no extra charge.

Q12: Can I get physical swatches of the materials?
A: We try to provide good pictures of the available material colors and patterns on our web site. If you require a physical material swatch sample, we can provide you with them for a nominal charge. We will refund any monies spent on samples if you do end up ordering and buying from us.

Q13: If I choose a theater chair with a back that reclines, or rocks backward, how much room do I need to have behind the chair, so that I will not hit the wall behind the chair when the chair's back moves backwards?
A: 3 to 5 inches is recommended. See our "Tools" page, it contains a helpful diagram. Tools Page http://www.wholesaletheaterseating.com/theater.seating/wholesale.theater.seating.tools.html

Q14: Why real movie theater chairs? Isn't a lounger recliner better?
A: Yes and no. It depends on what you want to use your theater room for. One big advantage of real movie theater seats is you can comfortably fit more people into your theater room. Another is that real theater seats are commercial grade, they are tough, plus they make your theater actually a theater, not a T.V. room. If you want to occasionally nap in a lounger chair, consider having both loungers and real cinema seating in your home theater. A row of each.

Q15. What size should the home theater seats be?
A. The most popular real movie theater chairs are 22 inches wide, from center of armrest to center of armrest, and the seat is usually about 20 to 22 inches deep, and the chair is 36 to 40 inches tall, measured from the floor to the top of the chairs back. This is larger than say, 30 years ago, when the average theater chair was only 18 or 19 inches wide.

Q16. How do I determine the overall width of a row of theater seating?
A: Most chair widths are given in center-to-center dimensions. So a chair "22 inches wide" is measured from the center of one armrest over to the center of the other armrest. So first you multiply the number of chairs times that width. So, 3 chairs at 22" center to center would equal 66". That's fine, but that is not the total length. Next, you now have to add the "other half" of the armrests, at the ends of the row. This is usually 4 additional inches. So in our example, 3 X 22" = 66" + 4" = 70" total overall width.

Q17. How many chairs will fit in my room?
A. Here are some of the basic things you need to take into consideration: You want the person sitting in the front row, actually the person's head (not their knees), to be 1 to 2 times the width of your screen, away from the screen. So… say your screen in 100 inches wide. Then you would want the eye of the person sitting in the front row of seats to be100 to 200 inches away from the screen. Another basic thing is your aisle widths. A doorway is 36 inches wide, so use that as a guide. Some people like wide, say 48-inch aisles, others don't mind a 20-inch aisle. Remember to allow room for doors to open and for stairs. All of these issues need to be taken into consideration. See our "Tools" page, it contains a helpful diagram. Tools Page http://www.wholesaletheaterseating.com/theater.seating/wholesale.theater.seating.tools.html

Q18. Do I need to put my seating on to a riser platform to improve my view?
A. This concerns your line of sight. If you can get the bottom of your screen high enough off the floor, then no you do not need risers. Usually if your screen is 3 feet off the ground, that is enough. Riser height can vary from 4 inches to 12 inches per step. With 6 to 8 inches being the most popular height. However if you want tall chairs, say 40 or 42-inch tall chairs, then risers may be necessary. See our "Tools" page, it contains a tools, a diagram and links. Tools Page http://www.wholesaletheaterseating.com/theater.seating/wholesale.theater.seating.tools.html

Q19. How much do the home theater chairs cost?
A. Prices range depends on the features of the chair, its bells and whistles. Our description pages tell you the pricing for each model, and what bells and whistles are available for that particular model of seating.

Q20. Why should I buy from you?
A: Price, Service, Quality. When it comes right down to it, that's the reason you would pick any company to do business with.
Price: We will match any price you find. It has to be a legitimate competitors price, for the same item.
