I'm currently building a theater room in the basement and have everything worked out in my head the way I would want it, except for one problem. The room is about 24 by 14 with low 7 foot ceilings, except about 11 feet towards the back of the room, the ceiling get even lower to about 6.5 feet because of heating ducts running across the ceiling. The framing was built around the heating ducts so the ceiling will be even lower in the back of the room. The first row of seats will be flat on the floor of course, the 2nd row of seats will be back where the ceiling drops about half a foot, and I want to elevate the seats a bit so people in the 2nd row are staring into the back of the peoples heads in the first row. I wanted to put a riser, but the ceilings are too low where the 2nd row would be for a riser. Any averaged size guy that stands up over there with a riser would certainly smack his head on the ceiling.
So with this room situation, what can I do about the 2nd row? Can anything be done, or should I ditch the 2nd row?
