Hosting a Private Event at Angelika

We can accommodate groups of up to 240 people, and our state-of-the-art theater features up to 4K resolution and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround. However, we can accommodate a range of formats, including 2K and 4K projection, Blu-Ray, and DVD, as well as PowerPoint, Skype, streaming platforms like Vimeo and YouTube, and live screen mirroring for software and website demonstrations. 

We also have 35mm projection available, as well as fully mixed audio solutions and both wired and lavalier microphones to suit any of your event's specific needs.

With 6 auditoriums to choose from, we can find a theater that suits your event seating perfectly. 

Food For Private Events

Your guests will have the option to pay at the full cafe, or we can discuss catering options. Outside food and drink are not permitted in our theater, so you will need to consider this when thinking about food and beverages for your party. Our cafe has a great menu, and we also offer classic concessions like popcorn and bottled drinks.

Film Selection for Parties

Your movie selection for your private screening can be something that you provide or can be any of the movies that are currently showing as a regular engagement at our theater. If you have a special request about something you would like to show, contact us as soon as possible to discuss your needs.
