I have been planning a home theater for quite some time and I read many articles and posts about seating distance. However, what I want to know is why the local cineplex doesn't use the same seating distance criteria? The front row seats are way closer than 1.5x screen size ratio. The answer to that question would go a long way in how I want my home theater seating. Keep in mind, I'm very much aware of why these calculations exist for home theaters (eye strain, sensory overload etc...). However, the room I'm planning to use is 30 x 48 and 25' Stewart Director's choice 2 screen and I don't want to have just one row of seating fifty feet away.
