Take Your Seat! Manufacturers highlight their top-of-the-line chairs


In our annual roundup, seating manufacturers share details about their newest and most popular recliners, part of the chair revolution that’s making moviegoing an ultra-comfy experience.


The recliner renovation means a reduction in seating capacities while paying for construction. The design intent behind the Camatic Motion chair is to reduce those problems. We start with a chair that provides a luxurious reclining experience. Supreme comfort is then combined with cinema function—a wall-hugging design paired with a narrow recline footprint. The result is a high-performance chair that many times fits the existing platform or, at minimum, allows for more rows with lower construction costs (versus a standard recliner). More chairs, less construction and a breathtaking cinema-going experience allow our clients to more quickly recoup their investment. (camatic.com)
