Screening rooms for the exclusive use of residents are a big feature of the latest new residential buildings. These private cinema spaces have a good-sized movie screen, HD projector, a high-quality surround sound system, and plush movie theater-style seats. Residents can enjoy all the perks of an ultra-modern cinema without dealing with the crowds and sticky floors.

Jean Nouvel-designed residential tower above MoMA in Midtown 53 West 53 offers over 30,000 square feet of extraordinary amenities, five-star-hotel-level services, and luxurious residences. Architect, designer, and artist Thierry Despont designed the lavish homes and most of the shared spaces, including the screening room. It features ambient lighting, rich finishes designed with a regal color palette, and a massive screen that makes each of the 18 theater-style inspired seats the absolute best in the house.

The rooftop amenity space includes two amenity wings linked by a landscaped wrap-around terrace. The outdoor screening lounge is warmed by integrated heat lanterns and a grand fireplace.
