La loge (The Theater Box), Pierre-Auguste Renoir

Theater seats at the rear of the main floor of older movie theaters that have wider, softer, and more widely spaced seats, sometimes capable of rocking and often with a greater height difference between rows. Patrons using these seats were usually charged a higher ticket price than the general admission. Also a similarly upscale seating region in a modern concert hall or sports venue. Used as seating sections in places such as Shea Stadium in New York; Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Fenway Park and TD Banknorth Garden in Boston, Massachusetts; Jacobs Field in Cleveland; Assembly Hall in Bloomington,Indiana; the George Gershwin Theatre on Broadway in New York City, New York; the Stranahan Theater in Toledo, Ohio; and the Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco. In stadiums the term may be used to denote the back portion of the lower tier, or a separate tier distinguished from the mezzanine level.
