I am at the very beginning stages of planning my basement home theatre (hence my 1st post). Room is 13' X 16' and I am thinking about doing 2 rows of double seating (not sure if that's the correct terminology but 4 seats in each row with seats being in groups of two with a walkway in between). I am looking for narrow double seat options - ideally around 50" or less for each pair - any input would be greatly appreciated. Second row would be on a riser but of course this has no bearing on the seat width. Thanks..

The room I'm going to be working with is 13' wide too, and I'm looking to maximize seating.

I found these Palliser Bullet seats here that look nice: http://www.theaterseatstore.com/palliser-bullet-power

The double seat w/ arm rests are 56" wide. A pair of those should leave room for an aisle that is just shy of 3' wide in a 13' wide room.

Lots of different configuration options. I like the center aisle idea, I hadn't thought of that. I figured the back row can be up against the back wall and not need any aisle space, so with using a 1x 2R, 2x 4R, and 1x 3R, would give you 6 seats on the back row. Add a 2nd row with 2x 2R/3R, and that's 4 more seats for a total of 10.

I have less than you in width. I only have about 11ft in width my room is roughtly 16.5 ft long.
I am able to still fit two seats in the front row and a couch in the back row.

I guess it depends where your entrance is and you can design around that for your isle for easy access to seating.
That way you figure out the right seating for your area.

Also you might concider Costco They had a wicked deal on a 3 seat motorized home theater recliners. I think it was around $1300 for the whole setup.

This above room has my exact room dimensions! My ceiling is only 8 feet high with a ceiling mounted projector, so tiered seating is not an option. What I did was to use a reclining love seat facing the screen with a futon 90 degrees from the screen.
