Is 36" minimum code in your area? Minimum step width here in NC is 24".
I'll be honest, I am seriously thinking of going with 7 seats - 4 in the rear and 3 in the front - so people's heads are staggered. I know it's a loss of one seat, but it solves a lot of issues IMHO.
I'm not sure specifically here, but I was using the above handrail spacing. From what I can find, if you have a handrail on both sides then minimum step width below the rail is 27". I'm sure it varies some for different municipalities. I assumed this was the bounding requirement when no handrail is required (i.e. three steps or less).
I think my wife still likes the idea of the love seat as well. We're also a family of four, so having four seats in the prime row makes sense. It's something to consider, though. I'd certainly like the option of putting some end-table subs there as it's pretty close to the middle of my theater.

Thanks for the thoughts. Before, I never took this seriously despite living in the woods. We've seen dead rattlesnakes on the road, but I always assumed they would go out of their way to stay away from areas with people. Unfortunately, I was very wrong. I've always been told that rattlesnakes are just as scared of us as we are of them, and they will run away given a chance. That, my friend, is a load of crap! This snake had a good five minutes between when my dogs were in the house and I got outside with something to deal with it. It was still there, and it was still rattling and showing it's fangs. It made no move to leave despite being all by itself for several minutes.
Anyway, sorry for the rant. Sometime in the next couple years we'll be clearing out more trees to put the woods outside our fenced in yard. Obviously that's not a perfect solution, but it should help with the leaves and sticks that they tend to hide in. We don't let our kids go near the wooded section in our yard anymore, and I make a trip out looking before we let the kids go play. We've also found out that there is a rattlesnake vaccine for dogs that is very inexpensive. There's not a lot of data on it, but our other dog will be getting it soon.
