New Auditorium and Theatre Seats

Preferred Seating is a full-service commercial seating company that serves clients across America. We offer high-quality, “Made in the U.S.A.” seating and much more. Our design team can create a customized seating layout for your venue that addresses your unique requirements. We have expert craftsmen that can refurbish all kinds of used auditorium chairs. They can refinish wood or reupholster a seat. Our professional installers will travel throughout the United States.

Over the past two decades, we’ve learned which theater seating truly stands the test of time. We offer the latest in modern, ADA-compliant theatre seats and the best in used auditorium chairs.

Removable, Multipurpose Seating

We see an increasing number of projects featuring a combination of permanent and removable seating. In theatres, it is easy to reconfigure removable seating to accommodate ever-changing types of performances. Create a better experience for your ticket holders and maximize revenue at the same time. This multipurpose seating is popular in public buildings, universities, and houses of worship as well.

Pre-owned Seating Options

There are a number of important reasons to consider used chairs. For example, if you are responsible for the renovation of a 1920s-era cinema, refurbished, pre-owned seating may be the perfect solution to the need to match theater seating with vintage architecture. Also, it is possible to save as much as 40 percent when you choose used auditorium chairs over new. When used seats require refurbishing, our experienced, dedicated craftsmen can tackle almost any challenge. They can repair broken standards, refinish wood and apply a new powder coat finish to metal. Finally, they can reupholster a seat with a fabric of your choosing.
