The setup those guys used was very simple, from behind-the-scenes stills I once saw: a white wall or sheet, a black cardboard or foamboard cut-out of the seat back shapes, and they sat on stools or folding chairs, watching a monitor low and unseen by the camera. It's really just a big luminance key, matted and scaled. A google images each will turn up many versions of the silhouettem ready to layer into a scene, but of course, it will not have any motion.

shoot your audience on green screen. key them over your favorite movie. then apply color correction to the audience shot and bring down your whites/mids/blacks down to zero...there you go.

You can add the chairs as an intermediate graphic layer thereby simplifying the greenscreen shoot and increasing your option in post.
