5 Hotels With Oscar-Worthy Screening Rooms

Just ten days from now, Award Season will reach its peak during Oscar weekend. We’ve already given you a set of drink recipes courtesy of hotel bartenders, and today we’re following up with five hotels with Oscar-worthy screening rooms.

Over in South Beach, the Delano only opened its fancy Media room last summer. Those sofas look perfect for curling up and settling in for the long haul (and we know that telecast gets a little wordy sometimes), and it’s already done a Weinstein Screening Series, which featured Oscar winners like The King’s Speech.

Over in London, the Taj Buckingham Gate has an entire Cinema Suite dedicated to the history of film. The work of Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, the suite is a riotous explosion of color, fabric, and artwork. With a backdrop of 1940s & 1950s Hollywood and Indian Cinema of the 1950s, you’ll find an 85-inch plasma screen and Steinway Lyngdorf cinema system and a library of 300 movies to choose from.

If you’ve headed south for a little R&R at Amanyara in the Turks & Caicos, you won’t have to miss a thing. A fully-equipped screening room is on site, and major events like the Oscars and the Super Bowl are shown for guests, who can relax in 30 wide leather seats, with the advantage of having a white sandy beach just steps away.

Immortalized in many a movie, the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire has a Presidential Suite that comes not just with the media set up to host a great private Oscar party, but a colonnaded hallway that seems made for dramatic entrances don’t you think? As we’d expect the 4,000 square foot suite to be occupied next weekend, there is always the brunch and viewing party at restaurant THE Blvd, with live streaming to begin at 11:30am. Partner in the initiative is Moët & Chandon, so you know there’ll be enough bubbly to keep you going through the telecast.

The Screening Room at the Bryant Park Hotel is larger at 70 seats, and has full 3D. The room is used for pre-screenings on a daily basis, and the website boasts with previous hosts like Martin Scorcese, Paul McCartney, and….. Lindsay Lohan. Sounds like this is one place where she hasn’t made the blacklist yet.
