Abstract: A theater chair movable by remote control comprises a support strucutre, a chassis having a back and arms installed on same, and a seat rotatably engaged to the chassis. The support structure comprises at each side of the chassis, a vertical sliding mechanism and a horizontal sliding mechanism. The sliding mechanisms comprise rotatable threaded spindles and sleeves threadedly engaged thereon. The horizontal sliding mechanisms are attached by universal joints to the chassis of the chair and both vertical and horizontal sliding mechanisms are driven by independent drive motors, operated by remote control by sending a signal in synchronism with a scene of the show. The seat contains a vibrator for producing vibrational and rhythmic movements in the seat.

I claim:     1. A theater chair movable by remote control, comprising a supporting structure, a chassis with a backrest and two armrests integral therewith and installed on the supporting structure, a seat connected to the chassis so as to be rotatable with respect thereto, and vibrational means within said seat, the supporting structure comprising, at each side of the chassis:
  • a rigid frame;
  • first bearing means fixed to the frame;
  • a first pair of threaded spindles supported vertically by said first bearing means;
  • a first drive motor supported by said rigid frame and connected through first gearing means to rotate said first pair of spindles;
  • a first pair of sleeves threadedly engaged on said first pair of spindles respectively;
  • a first plate which connects the first pair of sleeves together;
  • second bearing means fixed to the first plate, a second pair of threaded spindles supported horizontally by said second bearing means;
  • a second drive motor carried by said first plate and connected through second gearing means to rotate said second pair of spindles;
  • a second pair of sleeves threadedly engaged on said second pair of spindles respectively; and
  • a second plate which connects the second pair of sleeves together,
the second plate at one side of said chassis being connected to said one side of said chassis through at least one ball and socket universal joint and the second plate at the other side of said chassis being connected to said other side of said chassis by way of at least one other ball and socket universal joint so that the two sides of the chassis may be raised or lowered independently of one another by independently actuating the first drive motors and the two sides of the chassis may be moved forwards or backwards independently of one another by independently actuating the second drive motors.
