London, United Kingdom—Reported by D.J. Larsen of Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Calling all film aficionados and movie buffs, the opportunity to delve into the history of film is finally here. Later this month, 51 Buckingham Gate, Taj Suites & Residences, London will unveil its new Cinema Suite created by acclaimed Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee. The 1,832-square-foot, two-bedroom cinema suite includes a dining room, study, powder room and kitchen and is designed to pay homage to motion pictures from across the globe.
Guests will be able to bask in the ambiance of Hollywood in the 1940s and 50s as well as the Indian Cinema era of the 1950s. The charisma of greats such as Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth and the Hollywood era can be garnered while relaxing in one room and the inspirations from great Indian artist like Guru Dutt, Merchant Ivory and Bimal Roy can be sensed in another.
This cinematic ambience is not only inspired by breathtakingly rare Bollywood prints, remarkable history books, portraits and drawings but is fully achieved by state-of-the-art technology which complements the glamorous design. The 85-inch plasma cinema screen, with a 3D home theater system, is one of the biggest private screens in any London hotel suite. It is assisted by a world class Steinway Lyngdorf cinema system – a fully immersive experience that raises the bar in terms in-hotel audio visual offerings. The system has been preloaded with a range of 300 international motion pictures, books and music, chosen by Sabyasachi himself to acknowledge that time is well spent amongst films, art and culture.
