With awards season kicking into high gear, it’s only natural to want to catch up on viewings of nominated films and programs. You could watch them on your tablet or stream them onto your flatscreen, but for a more authentic experience, a private screening room—such as the ones featured here—is the only way to go.
The state of the art movie room/den of this five-bedroom and four-and-a-half-bath condo at 220 Riverside Boulevard (on the market for $8.995 million) boasts surround sound and hidden speakers for a truly immersive screening experience.
Tucked away in the full-height basement of this five-bedroom, six-and-half-bath townhouse at 150 Reade Street (priced at $16 million) is this large media room with its own full bathroom. It’s adjacent to the home’s 450-square foot cellar vault—the perfect spot for storing a library of DVDs.
The oversized, soundproof screening room of this three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath maisonette at 157 East 84th Street (listed for $6.495 million) is outfitted with a professional level projector, a 120-inch screen and sound equipment. It’s all located on the same level as the laundry room so you can toss in a load while catching up on the drama unfolding in the latest installment of Downton Abbey.
Located on the fifth floor of an über-grand Upper East Side townhouse at 232 East 63rd Street houses, just opposite a plush billiard room sits this oversized auditorium with cushy, upholstered seats, a jumbo screen and—completing the space—a movie theater-style red velvet curtain.
