Save me a seat!

New Website Targets Home Theater Seating Market:

"These real movie theater chairs are actually engineered and designed with movie viewing in mind, making them perfect for the growing home theater market.

Advantages of having a home theater are many. Having a real mini movie theater in your home keeps the kids at home more often, encourages the guys to come over for the NFL Super Bowl party, and have a ‘girls night in’ for a chick flick and some popcorn."
A true sign of the times.

The home media products and theatrical viewing products are quickly converging. Theater seats may not be as high profile an item as say, digital projectors or DVDs that are released at the same time as the theatrical premiere, but are perhaps a stonger indicator that the distinction won't be sticking around for much longer.

I'm trying to think of a good analogy for this situation. I guess home theaters are a lot like swimming pools. Everything you need to create a swimming pool in your backyard is available and almost commonplace, despite the fact that pools are also commonly available through public institutions. Noboby thinks twice when they see a pool in someone's backyard, it's entered people's minds that the swimming pool is something that you can enjoy at home.

The biggest difference, I suppose, is that people don't have to ask studio's permission when they want to practice their backstroke. :)
