Casual vs theater, how many seats, riser height

I have a dedicated 12x19x7'8" (WxDxH) and need to get some better seating.

I have 4 power recline theater chairs now (but will sell because the arms are way to wide and only allow 3 in a row). The theater seating is nice, but not sure how condusive it'll be when having people over.

Pretty sure I can only do 2 rows, and thinking probably about 4 seats + 3 seats

I'm also considering going more casual with the seating. We watch a ton of movies and TV and quite a bit of Xbox, considering something a bit more of a hang out spot for everyone...maybe make everyone feel more together. But theater seating is awful nice too, and the cool factor.

I've searched here and haven't found much. A few images on the web (attached)

I also will need to put in a riser (yeah, should've done that when we built the house). How high does that need to be? Concerned about being to close the the projector (ceiling mounted and the ceilings aren't very high, 7'8")
