Atlas Cinemas Diamond Center, located at 9555 Diamond Centre Dr. in Mentor, has announced that it will renovate all 16 of its auditoriums with luxury reclining seating.

By May, just in time for blockbuster season (though long after the hotly anticipated Black Panther), 12 of its 16 auditoriums will house the recliners exclusively. The remaining four will have a mixture of recliners and "oversized rockers."

Locally, moviegoers can already experience the purported luxury of reclining seating at the following movie venues: Regal Entertainment Group's Crocker Park and Willoughby Commons, AMC Entertainment Inc.'s Westwood Town Center and Ridge Park Square, and Cinemark Theatres' Valley View and Strongsville at Southpark.

In one of Scene's most controversial feature stories of 2017, we published an argument against luxury seating at the movies. We have yet to hear the end of it.
