The Concorde is available in several chair widths and back heights with no change in price. The flip-up cupholder armrest is standard and allows the row of chairs to be converted into a love seat.

  • Gravity lift seat bottom mechanism
  • Flip up armrest: standard, wide and extra wide
  • Self-skin or upholstered armrest pad
  • Square back with inner and skirt for different height backs availability

Concorde Rocker theater seating is an excellent choice in many types of venues, from cinemas to theaters. As a result, this rocker is one of the most popular that we offer. Comfort can be maintained during performances lasting hours. Enjoy varied seat widths, back pitches, colors, heights, and finishes. Concorde cinema chairs offer a combination of comfort and narrow profile. Achieve maximum seating density while maintaining patron comfort.

Steel Components

The standard upon which the seat is built and other metal components are made of heavy gauge rectangular, tubular steel. These seat elements are thoroughly stress-tested. Long-term durability is a real advantage with the Concorde Rocker theater seating. Note that the metal is finished with powder coating, not paint. The polyester powder coat finish is oven baked onto the steel at 200 degrees C. Your Concorde movie seats will have the toughest finish possible.

Automotive-grade Plastics

Steel components are combined with high-impact plastic elements that are virtually indestructible. The plastic used is the same injection-molded polypropylene that is used by auto manufacturers.

The inner seat back is made of ribbed plastic that diffuses pressure points, leading to more comfort for your ticket holders. The outer seat back is textured high impact polypropylene. Both the plastic surfaces and the powder coated metal surfaces are particularly receptive to easy cleaning. These materials will also be very kind to your maintenance budget in the years to come.

Upholstery and Cushions

Solid construction is only of value if the upholstery and high-density foam in the chair holds up over time as well. The Marquesa land polyolefin fabric used in the Concorde movie chairs is extremely durable. It is also treated for long-term stain and spill resistance. Finally, the material is treated to meet all current fire resistant standards.

The seat cushions in any commercial seating are very important. The design must not only be ergonomic, but the foam insert must retain its consistency over time. In the Concorde theater seating, the cold-molded polyurethane foam insert is of the highest quality.


The Concorde rocker system offers long life and quiet operation. Multiple rubber pads eliminate the possibility of hard surfaces rubbing together to cause noise or needless wear.

The self-rising seat bottom offers patrons optimum convenience. The unique “gravity-life” mechanism will remain quiet and maintenance-free for many years.


Concorde armrests are upholstered for added comfort. The cup holder at the end of each armrest securely holds drinks while offering the easiest access possible. The flip-up style armrest helps speed arrivals and departures. Also, one or more armrests can be flipped up during the performance to turn the seating into loveseat-style seating that is particularly user-friendly for parents with children.

Customizable Features

Three different chair widths are possible: 22-in, 23-in, and 24-in. Match the chair width to the specific requirements of your venue. Our designers can assist you in determining which seat width might be best for your application.

Three different back heights are possible: the Headrest Reduced, Anatomic, Headrest. The 40.5-in headrest-type back offers full shoulder and head support. The 34.75-in anatomic seat back offers lumbar support and lower back support. The 37.75-in “headrest reduced” design offers lumbar and lower back support along with head support.

Consider the ever-popular Concorde Rocker for a number of reasons: • Silent mechanisms, even with intense use • Steel framing with powder coating • Ergonomic design throughout • Automatic seat lift • Narrow profile to maximize seating capacity • Fully padded and upholstered seat and back • Easy cleaning, low maintenance • Flip-up armrest w/cupholder
