Many theaters have reclining seats now with ample room.  They also have very large theaters for the big blockbuster movies.  I'm not sure where you go to the theater but many have been sprucing themselves up in recent years.  AMC theaters are usually very nice as are Arclight.  Maybe you should do some research and try again. They aren't that bad.

I would go if the Film Forum of Manhattan were in my area. Otherwise, I'm satisfied to sit in my recliner five feet away from my 65" OLED 4k TV and watch DVD's from Netflix and streaming from HBO, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and DirectvNow while enjoying high quality surround sound.

Too funny! First they come out with home theater systems at a wide range of price points (simple to complex). Next, the home theater seating, for those who can afford, or want such things. Now here you have your 'home theater' experience at the theater!!

 

Actually, I didn't know there were such things. I know that we have some fancy new theaters, but I have no idea what the amenities are. I do know that one theater has beer, wine, and a menu, of sorts. They usually have indie films and on occaision, the restored classic film.
