The ABC Cinema in Nottingham – Cinema seating has come a long way! 

Sussex Seating has been providing new and refurbished seating solutions for a wide variety of venues for over 20 years.

As the name suggests our roots are in Sussex and we began in workshops on a farm near Chichester, West Sussex supplying seating to many independent cinemas, theatres and chains including Virgin, UGC, City Screen Picturehouse and WTW Cinemas.

Our Office

Outside our office in Yelverton, Devon on the edge of Dartmoor

We always wanted to move to the West Country and in the autumn of 2019 we moved to new premises on the edge of the beautiful Dartmoor National Park at Yelverton, Devon in the South West of England.

Since our move we have been working with our longstanding client WTW Scott Cinemas on the refurbishment of chairs in East Grinstead and Barnstaple, and Merlin Cinemas with upgrading their seating in Redruth and Falmouth.  New chairs have been created for The Players Theatre, Hurstpierpoint.

Top quality and professional company who via clear, communicative planning, delivered an outstanding install of solid, strong seats that even 6 years later have only required the minimum amount of attention. Highly recommended
