In the past, dinner and a movie meant spending an evening on the town, not settling down at home for a “Netflix and chill” session. To encourage the moviegoing experience of yesteryear, hotels are now creating screening rooms that allow for hosting intimate events, whether or not you’re a hotel guest. Instead of dealing with lines, noisy people, and overpriced treats, these cinema experiences involve gourmet snacks. The Whitby hotel in New York’s Midtown Manhattan area is one of the latest hotels that will include a cinema.
The cinema experience is not only a great way of attracting the general public, it’s also great for a hotel’s business. Some of these places can charge up to $90 for a simultaneous movie and dining experience. London’s Soho Hotel provides afternoon tea and a film, Victoria, British Columbia’s Oak Bay Beach Hotel serves upscale hot dogs, and New York’s Roxy Hotel screens films where guests can then have brunch at the restaurant.
The Island House in Nassau is only a year old but its weekend matinees consist of screening classic films like “The Gambler” in its 48-seat theater. During the month of June the resort hosts a retrospective focusing on the work of Alfred Hitchcock as well as a series focusing on films by local filmmakers.
The next time you stay at a hotel, you just might be able to enjoy dinner and a movie in a theater instead of just your suite.
