Explore cozy screening room rentals in Chicago

The final step to premiering a brand new feature film is to find a place to share it with your audience. Screening rooms are hard to come by in some cities but not in Chicago. From massive rooms that seat hundreds to intimate venues for family and close friends, screening room rentals in Chicago are aesthetically diverse and technologically well equipped.
For a major event for huge numbers of attendees, an auditorium space is the right space. Their superior acoustics and viewing screen ensure that everyone has a blockbuster experience. And when it comes to historic beauty and quality it's hard to beat the Auditorium Theatre, in the heart of the downtown Loop district. The building dates back to the 1800's and is a major part of the city's historic fabric.

Chicago venues with screening rooms for film premieres

As an American cultural hub, Chicago is full of venues that offer space for film premieres. Start with the Ambassador Chicago. Located in the historic Gold Coast district, it is a historic boutique hotel built in 1926. Located in the back of the library is a 708 square foot screening room with a 110-inch plasma screen display and built-in sound system. Walnut wood paneling and a neon dome ceiling provides a cozy, charming atmosphere with seating for up to 40 attendees.
Many educational venues offer screening rooms, including the Adler Planetarium on E. Solidarity Dr. The Samuel C. Johnson Family Star Theater is where scientists and the general public converge to explore exciting space-based topics. However, it is also available for public and private screening events, including film premieres.

Chicago screening rooms for private events

Screening rooms are easy to secure for small private events. Many birthdays, graduation parties, and conferences require a screen to share a video presentation with guests. Hotels offer conference rooms that seat dozens to hundreds of guests and most are well equipped with smart technology, projectors, and wifi.
If you are looking for a screening room with a theme or educational focus, check out art institutions. The Art Institute of Chicago offers several meeting spaces - and after the show is over, guests can visit the grounds to further their knowledge of fine art. Screening room rentals can also be flexible if needed. Large, blank walls provide a good space to post or project media on company values, sales targets, or other important data points. You may even have setup and breakdown staff included as part of your rental.
