Need about 500-600 decent, clean, gently used seats

Thanks for taking a moment to read this and comment if you have any direction here.

I’m reopening a three screen theater in the Midwest and am very much in need of 500-600 used seats. I am having plenty of luck finding used seats, but nothing that isn’t antiquated looking or just, not right. I’m being very particular about them because the theatre just closed and when it reopens it needs seats that don’t look anything like the seats that used to be in there. (which we installed in 1979 and never updated, reupholstered, or cleaner)

Here’s the minimum “must have” features..they must have-Cupholders
-Something higher than the old style half back seatbacks
-Either rocker or flip up armrest capable
-No white, offwhite, beige, light pastel, salmon, or brown colors
-Slope floor base is preferred but not required
-No wood, wood cover, or wood grain or simulated wood

Willing to go as high as $60 per seat based on the quality of the chair. Please comment back with a link to a photo to see the chairs you may have to sell.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME if you are a new seat seller, or with a “I may have what you need, please call me” vague ambiguoous number or information. If I have to go the brand new seat route, or if you want more for your used seats then the price I have listed, I am not interested.

Thanks very much and looking forward to hearing from you soon!

First, you can’t put flat floor seats on a slope and vice versa, they will be very uncomfortable, seats have to be installed on the slope angle they were designed for. With all the color and design requirements listed, you’re dreaming at $60.00.

You sound like a demanding dreamer.

Actually you negative neigh-sayers, they have been found, and for less than that.

Slope seats can be installed on a flat floor and vice versa if you have a proper shim for the angling. We aren’t having to do that but I think it key to note.
