“The Tourist” Movie Premiere After-party featured on Bizbash

-December 10, 2010

BizBash New York reports on yet another amazing Movie Premier After-Party, one that for sure did not disappoint!   The event all began at  The Tourist‘s movie premier at The Ziegfeld Theater.  And then over 800 bared the cold to attend the after-party at the prestigious Gotham Hall in NYC.  With stars like Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, any after-party is worth sticking around till the end!  

Event producer Chris Benarroch who worked with Columbia Tristar senior vice president of special events Alison Bossert to construct the event’s look and feel, pulled out all the stops to create a glamorous party.  The film takes place all across parts of Venice from Hotels to Train depots with a final scene taking place at a ball.  This scene set the mood and inspiration for this elaborate party.   “The party should be incredibly luxurious, and the goal became to recreate a Venetian ball in the middle of Manhattan”,said Benarroch. 

And what a sight it was!!  Silk organza panels created a circular frame around the chandelier, setting a backdrop for the rest of the rich furnishings including lavished gold sofas and velvet ottomans.  Inside the draping, guests could sit and mingle at the tables covered in rich chocolate linens, persimmon colored chair pad covers and red florals.   The evening’s focal point was a mirrored circular bar topped with towering rose- and peony-filled arrangement by Ron Wendt.
