private screening room

The latest high-tech hotel amenity plays to our passion for all things Hollywood: private screening rooms. Don’t expect sticky floors. These small, luxurious theaters feature state-of-the art projection rooms with 35-millimeter film capability, plush seating and cutting-edge lighting. New York City’s trendy 203-room Tribeca Grand Hotel, which opened this May, touts its 100-seat Grand Screen. Designed by Boyce Nemec, whose credits include the screening room at Los Angeles’ American Film Institute, the Grand Screen has built-in cup holders in armrests, a bar and a concession stand. “It is popular with film and video directors, but also with corporations,” says a hotel spokesperson. At the newly opened 130-room Bryant Park Hotel, also in New York City, a 70-seat screening room is set for a year-end debut. And, at the 360-room Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara, Calif., which opened its doors in September, groups can book a 220-seat screening room, adjacent to the property’s seven meeting rooms.
