LOL @ into space! lolol...we have to be selective about expenditure. It's just good money management. My wife, however, does always have the upper hand with me when it comes to purchases. She's not a big shopper, but when she does eye something she likes, and I say "that's way too much money for clothes, she subtly reminds me about what any one piece of gear for the theater has cost me. I can honestly say, the theater seats will not be one of those items. Some seating is well priced, and well worth it when we consider the cost of other furniture.

Sucks washing a truck in the winter too when it's 32 out cause all my basement is in my garage now so i can't bucket wash in the garage right now! damn theatre! Damn new cars. that's why i like to drive a beater! lol
I have no idea what to do about chairs. they are either so expensive or cheap but crap. what are your plans?
Cars should be the least flashy things in our lives. My car is pushing 140k miles on it, and I'm going to drive it until the wheels fall off. Earlier in 2014, I was looking at a Tesla--this theater actually blocked that from happening, by drawing out so long. But I'm glad it did. I would have spent a LOT of money on a vehicle.
I'm going with the Fusion Jives. I've heard great things about them.

I found the price to be a little high and don't think they are the best looking seats either, but it doesn't matter that much. Comfort is the priority and I'm satisfied with that.
Those really are some comfortable chairs. I remember Jaimie and I talking about them after we got in the car leaving your place back in 2013. When we sat down in those chairs, we just....sunk into the seat. Very, very relaxing.
