With awards season underway in the US, the set of the Oscar-tipped Irish film Room has gone on display at a cinema in Los Angeles as the Lenny Abrahamson-directed drama continues its nominations push. 

The set was unveiled at the Landmark Theater in the city following a screening and question and answer session with Abrahamson and Room's producer, Ed Guiney.

The journalist who moderated the Q&A, Gregory Ellwood, shared photos of the Ethan Tobman-designed set online, which can be seen below. 

Due for release in Ireland on January 15, Room stars Brie Larson (Short Term 12, The Spectacular Now), Jacob Tremblay (The Smurfs 2, Somnia), Joan Allen (The Bourne Supremacy, Nixon) and William H Macy (Shameless, Magnolia).

Adapted from Emma Donoghue's award-winning book of the same name, Room tells the story of a five-year-old boy (Tremblay) growing up with his mother (Larson) in a shed which he believes is the whole world, while she hides from him the fact that they are captives. 

The film has been tipped for nominations in the Best Picture and Best Actress categories, among others. In September, Room won the coveted People's Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival. The award is often an indication of things to come during Oscar season.

12 Years a Slave, Slumdog Millionaire and The King's Speech all previously won the TIFF People's Choice Award and went on to win Best Film at the Oscars.

Irish film company Element Pictures was among the producers on Room, in association with Bord Scannán na hÉireann/The Irish Film Board.
