Building a platform

I am nearly complete finishing my basement, currently putting up the suspended ceiling, but am looking for some advice on how to build a platform. I will be installing theater seating and I want to elevate the second row, maybe 6" off the ground. I haven't figured out what size I will be making it yet, but structurally, can anyone give me some advice?

Thank you in advance

Since it is to be six inches off the ground, why not build a frame out of 2x6's and put in as many braces as you see necessary for weight and cover with 1/2" plywood? Just a thought.
