Screening Venues Rental New York City
Make a memorable night out an even better night in.
Why have a Movie Screening?
With a private movie screening, you can offer your friends, work friends, and people you’d like to know better a night on the town that is buzzy and fun—but without masks and with no shared common spaces with unknown fellow patrons.
We’re the Wind Beneath Your Wings
The night of the screening, a Casa Manager will be onsite to greet guests, make sure everything runs as you have envisioned and will handle anything that comes up during your event. You can fully participate in the screening and engage with your guests.
Here are some types of screening venue options Cocoon offers:
Rare Movie Night
You have scored that rare print, DVD Bluray, or VHS tape. Cocoon will handle getting the right technology along with a good size screen and the best audio.
Double feature with dinner
For film buffs, comparing and contrasting films is extremely meaningful. If you are part of a formal or informal film society, your group can create a truly special evening. See the first movie, then break for dinner and see the second—or, see both back to back and discuss widely and at length over a shared feast.
Your Thank You to Movie Investors
Every completed film starts with fundraising—and a special night with the filmmakers was an incentive you offered. Have a terrific screening event, smartly priced, yet one that feels luxe.
A Mask-Free Theatrical Entertainment Night with Friends
No one actually wants to sit in a theater with a mask strapped to their face. You miss your friends, they miss you, and so why not pool resources and screen films you’ve been talking about for months that in fact, never came to a theater near you?
