Look, we’re always thinking of the weirdest and most wonderful ways to keep ourselves busy over the summer. Book clubs have been done to death and movie nights hosted at home can be such a hassle (cleaning up popcorn crumbs wedged between sofa cushions are torture). But how about this third option – a secret movie-night club in a private cinema theatre called The Screening Room?
Located at the Studio One Hotel in Studio City, this private space lets you host your own exclusive screening of a movie of your choice and then some.
It’s a hideaway waiting to be rented out and transformed into your own little cosy den.
It’s kitted out with all the pre-requisites for the perfect home theatre setting with added upside of not being home. Bright, comfy couches you can sink into flanked by conveniently placed tables to put those snacks and sodas, a 165 inch-screen with Dolby Surround Sound that your flatscreen TV at home would pale before, and popcorn served directly to you.
Although what makes this the ultimate movie night venue for us is that you just need a headcount of 4 people to book the entire space, which can easily accommodate more people.
So whether you want to host a family-of-four movie night, or a big viewing party of the latest TV series with all your friends, the choice is yours.
Freedom of choice at The Screening Room also extends to the contents of what you want to screen. Movies apart, you can screen a big sports game or even turn the space into your very own karaoke booth.
It’s like the Room of Requirements from Harry Potter except that your requirement is screen time that involves entertainment. In the past, The Screening Room has also been the scene of a bachelorette party! Talk about versatile…
The venue’s child-friendly too, so if you’re casting about for fun birthday party ideas for your little one this summer, this is a neat little spot.
Booking The Screening Room involves signing up for one of the many packages the space has on offer – adults can either plump for the AED 129 package that includes a pizza of their choosing, two soft drinks and popcorn. AED 199 will get you a pizza, a bucket of four house brews or bottle of grape, and popcorn. Now that’s a package you can rule out at a regular cinema.
Kids packages include juice boxes, candy, and popcorn and start from AED 49. An AED 20 upgrade will buy kids a pizza too.
