Building off of its retractable arm that gave consumers both a love seat and a common arm for their theater seating option, Fortress has introduced its Pocket arm for added variety. Consumers can have good old theater style seating with the look of a sofa, the company says.

The Pocket arm is a fully upholstered stationary housing between the backs of two chairs that accepts the retractable arm—whether the arm is up or down the seating looks like a sofa, with a continuous back cushion and no gaps between the backs. The retractable arm is upholstered in the same design as the back cushion so when it is up it becomes part of the back cushion, Fortress says.

This item is an accessory to the Off Broadway Theater seating line, which consumers can purchase through authorized Fortress dealers. Go to for more details.
