This event is sold out.
Come enjoy an evening of vintage cocktails and classic film in honor of one of literature’s greatest party hosts: Jay Gatsby.
Baz Luhrmann is stylishly reinventing The Great Gatsby for the big screen this spring, but the classic 1974 film version—starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow and filmed in the grand Gilded Age-era mansions of Newport, Rhode Island—is still a favorite among film buffs for its faithful rendering of this timeless F. Scott Fitzgerald tale.
In homage to Gatsby’s famous parties, this evening features vintage cocktails and a screening of 1974’s The Great Gatsby (144 min.) in the Driehaus Museum’s own Gilded Age mansion. After enjoying cocktails at 7 p.m. and exploring the Museum’s interiors after-hours, the film will begin in the historic ballroom at 7:30 p.m., complete with popcorn.
Guests are invited and encouraged to wear 1920s-style attire, as prizes will be awarded during the film’s intermission. Must be 21 or older to attend.
