Where exactly do you put tables when you have multiple rows of seats? I don't see how it could work. Mine's only a "small" home theater:



The seats all tilt back so the rear row has flip up foot rests and the front row reclines back. No room for a table. What do the people in the back do? Hold their drink throughout the entire movie? Chairs on the ends could have tables but not the middle.

It gets worse for larger home theaters with 4-5 seats across and 3 rows. Pretty impossible to put tables for everyone as the rows would have to be so far apart and even if you could they get in the way and result in a lot of spillage in the dark (been there, done that).

Sorry, but I like my cupholders. It's saved many a spilled drink.

If you've only got one row with a couple of seats, don't have seats that recline then a table works fine. But then it's not really a home theater if you ask me.

Personally, I don't like theater seating at all. We frequently like to lie down together while watching a movie and the arm rests just get in the way. I have a sectional with a chaise and an ottoman with drawers in the bottom. I pretty much look at theater seating as gimmicky.

Bad pic, but you can see it here:

I used to have something similar before I went with 6 HT seats:



(Old picture from around 2000/2001).

I replaced it with the 6 seats I posted earlier because it just wasn't as comfortable with many people. We could really only seat 3 and same problem with the drinks even with a tray on the ottoman: Constant spillage. I was always falling asleep as well.

awww, you gave up the pool table for theater seats? No way! Of course, my theater is meant for me to use and not really for entertaining. I will have people over sometimes, but rarely enough to make things uncomfortable. I will be good, they will just have to suffer. lol
