dressing for the 30s


For my birthday, my lovely man got us tickets to the Secret Cinema to see the Grand Budapest Hotel.  We've seen the film and LOVED it and to get Secret Cinema tickets was a great surprise as I've wanted to go for ages.  Guests are required to dress for the occasion - 1930s formal evening wear, naturally - and we will step into the film!  A secret location has been transformed into the resplendent luxury hotel of the film's title and we will sip cocktails, dance and enjoy entertainment as actors create the feel of the era around us.  And we'll watch a screening of the film too.

All the details are kept secret and no cameras allowed, so I've snapped a few photos while working out a hair-do a couple of days ago.

I have my ID papers (all guests are required to fill them in) and my evening gloves and it's off to the 30s tonight!

P.S. This also will accomplish another goal from the list! #36 Go to a Secret Cinema screening.
