Simple movie room/office

Hi guys, I've been reading some posts on this forum since beginning of the year, once I decided to buy a new house, I knew that I will have to create new office/movie room. I finally moved couple months ago and just finished my office. The office space not that big only 13x20 but I decided to go big on the screen. So what I put together is BenQ W1070 and 135" Elite Screen. My new computer table is also in place, the only thing left is some kind of sitting which I'm trying to choose.
Thanks for reading and inspirations, some of the builds on here are just mind blowing.

Room is still in progress, sorry for the mess and some pic quality

Couldn't you get a bigger screen? Just kidding, that screen makes a great statement.

Any plans for a comfy seating arrangement or do you watch from the awesome command center?

I know I wasn't planning to go more than 120" but when I did a trial run with just a projector (I got it first) and an empty wall, I kept moving projector to the back of the "future" room and the picture kept getting bigger and better! besides I didn't want to mount the projector in the middle of the room, so it's all came together nicely (I think).
Unfortunately I can't see much from the "command center", I can only see the top tip of the screen I'm defiantly looking for some couch(sofa) right now, so I and my family can finally enjoy the movie night(s). I only have up to 80"(84" maybe) to play with and my sofa budget around $300-$600 so I haven't found anything that I like yet. I really like to sit 4 people we have 2 young daughters, I realize that with this budget and amount of space it's gonna be tough but I'm trying

Thanks for reply!

Two cheap theater seats for the adults ($260 to $289 HHGregg) and two kid size chairs for the girls.

My theater is a bit narrow also. I'm going to use an vouch and get some bean bags/kids chairs to go up front. I'm looking your set up so far.

I'm probably gonna get some kind of couch too one day, but today I ordered couple zero gravity (patio) chairs I know this sounds pretty strange but one of my friends bought one for his camp and end up using it in his living room (he tells me they very comfy) I bought 2 as a set from Amazon for $89, you can't bit that price and then if I don't like them as "movie" chairs I can move them to my deck. My wife bought couple of round mesh (trampoline like) chairs for the kids couple weeks ago, so kids can use those. I also thought about bean bags but decided against it, for the price I would have to pay for 4 I can probably get more or less decent couch (I still might get couple just for additional sitting if these antigravity chars won't work).

We tried the same patio chairs for a while a few years ago when we were down two chairs. After a couple of movie nights, it didn't work for us.

The chairs are in. They pretty comfortable but I have yet to watch a full movie in it. They are defiantly a temp solution until I get something permanent that I like.
