Amazon Prime Video is once again renting out the Hollywood Athletic Club for much of April to continue its Emmy “For Your Consideration” campaign. Dubbed the “Prime Experience,” the display and series of events take place from April 12 to 27. Among the events: screenings with the cast and creators of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams” for TV Academy members, as well as themed evenings open to the general public.

This is the second year that Amazon has taken over the space to create themed rooms throughout the historic building. This time, interactive, themed rooms include the world of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” where, per Amazon, “attendees will be able to travel back to 1958 New York City through the eyes of Midge Maisel. As they enter her apartment, they’ll experience a unique ‘magic mirror’ where they can interact with the show. From there, they’ll be able to take pictures in Midge’s living room and kitchen, before checking out her standup at the Gaslight Café and ‘shopping’ at Midge’s makeup counter.”

For the Grateful Dead documentary “Long Strange Trip,” a paint-by-light photo booth will allow fans can write a word or draw a symbol in their pic.

Upstairs, featured shows include “Mozart in the Jungle” (where attendees can conduct their own orchestra, using Kinect motion sensor technology), “The Grand Tour,” “The Dangerous Book for Boys,” and “Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams” (where a lightshow choreographed to video from the series will take place).

These activities will deliver immersive experiences for the general public as well as insightful panel discussions to drive further awareness for series we’re submitting for Emmy consideration.”
