How would you apply a demand factor to a theatre that has electric powered seats. There are 125 seats. I don't know if they are heated or not or whether it only the positioning that is electrified. Haven't seen the spec yet. It never ceases to amaze me what the affluent people of this society come up with.

Seriously, until you see the specs, you are just guessing.

IMHO, the 'proof' is with the design professional who presents the details, specs, calcs, etc.

Plan review is on the submittals, specs, details, etc. When I have questions regarding calc compliance issues, an email, fax, or snail mail to the DP for clarifications, or details on any calcs leaves the job on hold.

Maybe it is one of those 3D type of movie seats where you feel like you are flying around the scene on the screen.

A lot of theme parks have those kinds of seats.

I believe the term of art is:"The feelies"

You either hang on to the sensation balls...

In any event, DRM code means that every audience member has to turn over their feelings to the studios.

The medium used to be the message. Now, we're the medium.
