Treat Clients to Private Showings of Oscar-Bait Movies

Private movie screenings are a great way to entertain a large group without breaking the bank. And, if you’re anything like us, you try to see as many of the rumored award-worthy contenders before the awards shows. While there are lots of good reasons to book a movie pre-screening for your next corporate event, knowing that your guests are sure to turn out for an Oscar-worthy flick is a strong one. Since awards season is already upon us, we decided to highlight some of 2016’s best flicks. We’ve listed a few of our fave new movies below. If you’re ready to book, request your private screening and we’ll get your VIP seats and popcorn ready to go.   

If you’re into musicals …

La La Land: This one’s a double whammy—it’s rumored to be up for just about every big award, and it’s a fun and entertaining blockbuster. The colorful, musical flick tells the story of an aspiring actress and a jazz musician, struggling to make ends meet while pursuing their dreams. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this musical explores what’s more important: true love or getting your big break. 

If you’ve seen Star Wars already, but you still crave sci fi …

Passengers: Who doesn’t love a little JLaw? This is one of the hottest films of the year and sure to be a crowd favorite. In a routine journey through space, two passengers, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, are woken up 90 years too early when their ship malfunctions, and they realize 5,000 sleeping passengers are in grave danger. This action-packed film will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

If you love technology and don’t mind shedding a few tears …

Lion: A contender for best picture, Lion tells the story of a boy who gets lost on a train that takes him thousands of miles across India when he is five years old. Twenty-five years later, the boy is living in Australia with his adoptive parents and decides to set out to find his lost family and return to his first home. We won’t spoil it, but Google Maps has a big role in his journey.

If you’re a space or history buff …

Hidden Figures: There’s quite a bit of Oscar buzz around the film, Hidden Figures, which tells the tale of three brilliant African-American women at NASA. These women serve as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world.

It’s too late to book a theater before the Golden Globes (airing this weekend- Jan. 8), but the Oscars are still more than a month away. Ready to book your theater? Grab the popcorn and request a private screening for your group today!
