A private room to show a movie


I have a small group and want to arrange for 10-12 people to get together and watch a movie - then hang out and discuss the movie after.

I am looking for a private room where we won't disturb other guests with the movie volume nor be too distracted by the hub of the bar. Maybe in a pub? During the afternoon (or morning) while its not so busy. We would need about 1.5 hours to focus on the movie...then noise and distraction is fine.

Any suggestions?

Ideally something central/downtown on the subway line.

Thank you!

    1. Now silly question... but do you want to eat and drink? or pay a room rental fee?

        Thanks for the responses! Camera Bar is a bit large and $700 for 4 hours. I was hoping not to pay a room rental fee, just bringing some customers to the location. I would do this viewing at home but my living room can't accommodate.

        I know that there are some pubs that have separate rooms with TV's... but not necessarily a DVD player. Ideally that is what would work though.


      2. Maybe you should call Globe Bistro and see if you could use the room they have on the second floor. I am sure they have a video projector so maybe you can use it.

        1. Try the Victory on Markham just south of Bloor. Easy to get to, and the upstairs has hosted many different things. If you're not into going to Camera, that's the only place I can think of.

            I believe th eTextile Museum mnay have the facilties and would like a simple donation. And they are across th estreet from The Metropolitan Hotel.

          2. Anything in a restaurant is going to be expensive. Why not try the local library and bring in your own snacks (no alcohol, though).
