Theater Seating Showcase
Theater seating is becoming a popular choice among churches, particularly those with a more contemporary worship style. This type of seating offers a variety of benefits, including enhanced comfort and greater seating capacity. As you consider how to best seat the members of your congregation, and reflect your particular mission and facility, theater seating can provide an attractive option for today's churches. Below, we have rounded up a variety of auditorium seating options from some of the biggest names in the industry.
Lyric Auditorium Seating
Lyric Auditorium Seating provides the high level of quality and comfort associated with all Theatre Solutions products at an affordable price. The Lyric is supported by rugged steel seat and back frames, which are fitted with suspension webbing for durable, silent operation. The Lyric line includes many optional enhancements found in higher-priced chairs, such as wood veneer back panels, hardwood armrests, matching end panels, ADA-compliant frames, aisle lights, and removable chairs.
The upgraded version of the Celebration theater seat from Series USA features a cantilevered aisle panel, which allows the end panel to be suspended several inches beyond the steel foot plate. This feature offers three added benefits: (1) an obvious visual enhancement, (2) a maintenance advantage in cleaning the carpeted aisle, (3) elimination of a trip hazard for ushers or those entering and exiting the rows. Additional features include zippered removable covers on the backs and seats, armless standards, and improved ergonomics.
