Price From EUR 1,400 to EUR 2,600 for 24 person screening with food and drinks.

When money isn’t an issue but living it up is, enjoy the big screen in big style in the basement of the slick Café Germain.

Like the restaurant and bar upstairs, this designer den has been created by interiors star India Mahdavi and may be the perfect location for a glam boys’ night out in front of the silver screen. The venue can hold 24 of your nearest and dearest and is yours for the night for a hefty, but not unthinkable, fee of 2,600 euros – negotiable on the basis of your food and drinks, but starting around 1,400 euros.

Fully equipped with state-of-the-art projectors, including for 3D, DVD and PlayStations, the slideshow of that St Barts holiday or the civil union video is no longer off the table as a weekend night entertainment option. Nor is calling in the super trooper platoon for a rumbustious screening of Mamma Mia or a Sound Of Music sing-along lock-in.

If the price tag’s too steep, consider a less costly but equally stylish private outing to the Royal Monceau’s Cinéma Lumières, another Costes brothers establishment. Available for around 1,200 euros per screening, it’s a little more accessible, and seating 100, you’d have a Grindr overload before the end of the title sequence.
