Entertainment seats continue to be neglected for plus-size consumers – Thelocalreport.in

(NewsNation) — The lack of comfortable seats for plus-size moviegoers may contribute to the movie industry’s attendance problem, mashable reports


Although box office returns remain 30% less than pre-pandemic levelspersonal anecdotes from multiple sources, such as Reddit thread r/PlusSize, viral twitter conversations about the inaccessibility of the theater seat and the US-based application. AllGothat reviews public spaces for larger bodies, all suggest that the abandonment of plus sizes is a contributor.

Nearly a third of the world’s population is overweight or obesity. But while the obesity numbers continue to grow, movie theaters, and all entertainment seats in general, have stayed pretty much the same.

“That a third of the community does not feel comfortable in your establishment is bad news. So they’re very motivated to make some changes,” said Rebecca Alexander, CEO of AllGo, speaking on NewsNation’s “Rush Hour” on Friday.

The problem is so widespread that the FAA asked the public I came back in early August to leave feedback with suggestions on airline minimum seat dimensions and found I was inundated with comments. The issue also goes beyond airlines. Stadiums and theme parks also have a problem with plus sizes.

“The biggest problem is that you have an experience that very few of your customers enjoy,” Alexander said.
