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.
