Less than a foot on either side would be pretty awkward to get by. Try putting furniture that you have of a similar height that distance from a wall and give it at try, even if it is just a kitchen chair. You should be able to squeeze by, but it probably wouldn't be practical for 'everyday" use.
If you don't plan to fill every seat with every movie, putting the couch against one wall and sitting at the other end and in the middle section will probably be ideal, since both of those positons will likely be close to the L/R center of the room.
On those occasions where you want to fill the entire couch and don't want to force anyone to sit close to the wall, slide it over a foot for movie viewing and slide it back again when you are done.
