So we've already shown you inside a guest room at the Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles, as well as 14 other cool things to see but today, we're taking you on a tour of the historic United Artists Theater first built in 1927 as the flagship theater for the United Artists movie studio.
The theater has been immaculately preserved throughout its long history (mostly thanks to pastor Gene Scott and his congregation who occupied the theater for about 20 years) and basically all that Ace Hotels needed to do was install some new carpeting and do some touch-ups here and there. (They're also working on building a new box office as the old one could barely hold one person.)
The theater's revitalized glory will be unveiled on February 14th when the hotel hosts their first event, The Spiritualized, which is already sold-out. But until then, guests at the Ace Hotel (like we were last night) aren't able to even peek into the theater. So we decided to give you a good, in-depth glimpse of it now. 3, 2, 1, action!
Staying at one of the most luxe hotels in London? Particularly the May Fair? Don't forget to pack your sexy blue and red paper glasses next to your Chanel sunnies: the May Fair has become the first hotel in the UK to offer "a 3D private viewing experience." Ohhh yes: the theatre now has 3D capabilities.
Boasting London's largest private screening room, the May Fair theatre now has the technology to show 3D films to the luxe clientele they're shooting (heh) for. It's a THX-certified theatre with 201 Ferrari leather-trimmed seats, its own bar and reception area, and an ARS (audio response system) console built into each seat.
The hotel is using RealD as its 3D-goodness provider, and (little did we know) 3D is sort of a hot thing right now (and not just a 1983 phenom): Monsters vs. Aliens, Journey to the Center of the Earth and the Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour were all recently released in 3D. Thank goodness Miley's in 3D, by the way. Thank goodness.
