Starting this month, the Beverly Hills Hotel – a hospitality establishment known for its long history of Hollywood guests and for its iconic green and white striped cabanas – will welcome the return of their luxury movie theater experience throughout the summer. The poolside movie series features five classic movies: Breakfast at Tiffany’s, La La Land, Clueless, Troop Beverly Hills And Some love it when it’s hot — and admission is $1,700 to rent one of eight poolside cabanas, each of which sleeps four.
The series launched last year in celebration of the hotel’s 110th anniversary, and after all three events sold out, the Beverly Hills Hotel team decided to bring it back, with two additional viewings. “We just showed Troop Beverly Hills last year and quickly learned how popular the film is!” Csaba Oveges, the hotel manager of the Beverly Hills Hotel, told me The Hollywood Reporter in an email statement. “It is important to us to create unique experiences for our guests that they will remember and cherish forever.”
The package also offers customized pre-fixe food menus and handcrafted cocktail drinks thematically inspired by each month’s movie. For the first time Breakfast at Tiffany’s screening, the lineup includes blue mimosas, flatbreads for breakfast, mini sugared croissants with semifreddo coffee and a Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed blue macaron dessert tower.
“We wanted to show cult classics in a legendary setting,” explains Oveges. “We’ve selected films that illuminate our iconic city and resonate with our guests and locals alike.”
According to Oveges, the intimate viewing experience at the location known as the “Pink Palace” is the reason for the hefty price tag. “The price covers the cost of production and the supply of food and drink,” he says. Access to the snack bar, with classics such as popcorn, chocolate and sweets, is also included in the total price.
