Do 'Dinner and a Movie' Right At Boston's The Revere

Boston's newest hotel, The Revere, is enticing guests with a new "dinner and a movie" program called "Reel Chefs" in which award-winning local chefs pair their favorite movies with a multi-course themed menu to match the film. Count us in!

To kick it off, Jamie Bissonnette, the head chef and owner of two top Beantown eateries, Coppa and Toro (not to be confused with Richard Sandoval's successful Toro Toro brand), will be showing up on March 19 to whip up four dishes he's calling "Pinxtos of Power," "Truffle Shuffle," "Chester Copperpot Pie," and "Rocky Road." And in case you didn't already guess, Bissonnette's movie of choice will be 80s cult classic The Goonies.

The best part of this new series? The venue. As we noted last year when the hotel was announced, The Revere is attached to Theatre 1, a state-of-the-art movie theater with ambient lighting, nifty projection and audio technology, and 225 super-comfy seats, each equipped with personal fold-out tray tables. Now, that's what we call dinner and a movie!

Two Aloft Hotels to Screen Sneak Peek of 'Portlandia' Season 2

A few quick questions: Do you like hotels? Did you watch (and laugh at) any of the first season of IFC's show Portlandia? Do you like free stuff? If you answered yes to at least two of these questions and you're anywhere near Brooklyn, NY or Portland, OR this week, you should totally head to Aloft Hotels' screenings of the first episode of Portlandia Season 2.

The new season officially begins this Friday on IFC at 10pm EST, and sure you can already watch preview sketches online, but going outside your place and seeing the whole first ep (for free) while scoring drink specials and Portlandia swag while having the opportunity to meet other local hipsters beats out the internet.Here's the screening schedule:

Wednesday, January 4, 7pm: Aloft Brooklyn 216 Duffield Street

Thursday, January 5, 7pm: Aloft Portland 9920 NE Cascades Parkway

The May Fair Boasts the Biggest Private Theater in London

Where: Stratton Street, London, United Kingdom, W1A 2AN
March 30, 2011 at 4:31 PM | by | Comments (0)

While London's Ritz Hotel was being "trashed" during Saturday's protests, we hid out for a few hours in the bar of The May Fair just up the street. It was incredible to think that just a minute's walk away, the masses were wreaking such havoc while here, tucked a little back from Piccadilly, all was calm and proper as afternoon tea progressed.

If things had gotten any worse, we would probably have found our way down into The May Fair's private theater, the largest private theater in London actually. We peeked in for only a moment to snap these photos, and heard that it's all set up not only to host conferences, movie screenings and other events, but it can also show 3D films. And they say London's grand dame hotels are so traditional.

One of our favorite parts of The Crosby Street Hotel is the screening room and little bar downstairs, especially when the events held there are open to the public. We also love books, so we're psyched about the new program launching at the hotel soon: Under The Influence: Writers On Film.

Kicking off on Monday, January 24 with Paul Auster, the series invites some of the country's best writers to introduce a film that has influenced his or her work. After the screening, they'll discuss their work and the movie with screenwriter Michael Maren, who put the series together--and, yes, there will be cocktails. (These are literary types, after all.)

The Sunday Night Film Club has been up and running at The Crosby Street Hotel for awhile now, and as luck would have it, Halloween falls on a Sunday this year. You know what that means: a nightmare on Crosby Street!

The Film Club's selection for next Sunday, October 31 is Saw 3D: The Final Chapter--and apparently the accompany dinner or bar plate offering will have a "Halloween twist."

We like a good Hotel Screening Room, and we're also quite fond of a Hotel Courtyard. Which leads us to the burning question: What's going on with Eventi's outdoor screening room/courtyard/plaza thingy?

Here's what it looked like when we strolled down 29th Street over the weekend. Below, you can see the hotel's rendering for how the space will look ...

We've been drooling over some hotels' rooftop pools but in London, the rooftop pool at The Berkeley has another use--as a cinema.

Every Friday, the hotel will transform its rooftop into a midnight movie theater where hotel guests and locals are invited to watch the latest fashion documentaries like "The September Issue" and "Valentino: The Last Emperor." Also on hand will be Blue Bar martinis, mini ice-cream cones, homemade popcorn as well as services from spa therapists like manicures with Chanel nail polish. And everyone can stay warm with a Mulberry blanket.

A White Rabbit, a Haughty Queen, and Bjork Walk into a Hotel…

How’s this for movie night: Alice in Wonderland is double-billed with Bjork in 3D (that’s Bjork in 3D) at the Crosby Hotel screening room this weekend. Which is more deliciously weird? Well, we’ll get back to you on that…

The Crosby’s plush screening room has been attracting celebrities, their friends, and their friends’ friends since it opened. But with the launch of the Sunday Film Club, which we covered earlier this year, it went from private to public, and we checked in to see how it's been doing since then. In a word (two words, actually): Very well. The film club has been filling to capacity with a diverse crowd (celeb friends or not) who come to sip bubbly, sink into the soft leather seats, and enjoy a posh night out.

Still catching up on all the Oscar movies you didn’t see before the big day? If you’re in New York, there’s a rather civilized way to do this now that the Crosby Street Hotel’s screening room is open to the public. On Sundays, anyway. The hotel’s Sunday Night Film Club kicked off on Sunday with The Blind Side and for the next four weeks, other Oscar-winning films will get a turn.

The Crosby Street Hotel's Screening Room is Already a Celeb Magnet

We hit up the Crosby Street Hotel on Monday night, and you know what that means: the celebrities are never far behind! OK, we'd never seriously say something like that but we suspect celeb guests and swanky events have been on the agenda for SoHo’s new "it" hotel since the blueprint stage. The place is made for the rich and famous, with its country-home-meets-urban-loft design and air of laidback British cool. Plus, there’s all that dog art. Celebrities love dogs.

Then, of course, there is the private screening room. So it did not surprise us to see photos of a film screening after-party at The Crosby pop up on Guest of a Guest this week. The film was the Sundance hit An Education starring much-buzzed-about Carey Mulligan. The young actress was at the Crosby for the bash—hosted by The Cinema Society & Dior Beauty with Moet & Chandon—on Wednesday night. Also in attendance to enjoy the on Moet English Rose cocktails, mini cupcakes and brownies were Dylan McDermott, Susan Sarandon, Mamie Gummer, Agyness Deyn, Bee Shaffer, Charlotte Ronson, and Zoe Kravitz.

New York's Soho House has a new set of gams. Well, not really. The hotel most known for its rooftop pool, recently redid their screening room and The White Room and invited the uber-exclusive renamed film series: IN-House to test things out. HotelChatter slipped into a cocktail hour for a screening of "The Wrestler" where Mickey Rourke is a hulking standout in both the film and in the delicately posh White Room.
