The Edge of Your Seat Seat

As the tension of the film escalates, somehow it seems you are on the edge of your seat. As you look down you realise that you actually are! The edge of your seat seat, is a mechanical device with all manner of technical whizzbangery hidden beneath its soft cushioned seaty interior. Basically, the back rest of the chair slowly moves forward, pre-programmed in relation to the parts of the film that are of most tension and whilst you are most engrossed.

Cinema owners take note, as programming the chairs for any overly sudden edge of the seat movements, will cause scores of patrons to be pushed violently onto the popcorn strewn floor simultaneously. This will only result in litigation and repeated hilarity.

       If a hatch also simultaneously slid back under each patron to reveal a deep chasm, the Edge of Your Seat Seat could escalate to become a Real Cliff-Hanger +

       Well if anyone litigates, we got just the lawyer. [Link]   

       I think I sat on one of these during the England v Portugal game.

       That's one damn fine link, [fries]. Good hunting.

       I was hoping that this was a seat which would move forward as you did, keeping you safe and off the floor as you became frightened. One would need to clear paths in front of such seats during scary movies, as repeated scooting forward of occupant and seat would cause the pair to drift around the theater.
