I understand the ' comfort and money' answer, but also the use of the room comes into play, as well as what you want the room to be. In other words is the home theater in your home used everyday? Is it the family TV room? Or is it a 'dedicated' theater room for events like having company over, chick flick night with the girls, guys night watching baseball, football, etc. Is it used for parties? Super Bowl, Oscar Night? If you use the room everyday the seats had better be COMFORTABLE to sit in for hours, even nap in. Are the kids older? Are they inviting their friends over to play video games for hours at a time? Eating and drinking? The real movie chairs are great for kids, because they are virtually indestructible, they are engineered and designed for 3 shows a day, up to 9 hours of sitting a day for 15+ years. They are manufactured to commercial grade standards.
If you want a real theater in your home you have got to go with real movie theater seating. If you like to kick back, relax, even nod off in your chair, then the leather home theater recliners are the way to go. As far as prices, there is a big range. My experience is you get what you pay for, usually. Don't overlook used real movie chairs either because there are some barely used theater seats out there that are a bargain.
