The weekend will begin on Friday, where VIP attendees can enjoy a day at the pool followed by a kick- off party with Paul ‘Marty’ Bates and a night of karaoke, True Romance style! Saturday morning will feature a meet & greet and breakfast with actor Bronson Pinchot, and culminate with an outdoor sunset screening of the cult classic. Guests can enjoy the “You’re So Cool” themed photo booth, as well as a display of original movie props, including Clarence and Alabama’s wedding rings, and more than 500 stills from the film, many of which have never been seen by the public. A Q&A with cast and crew will follow the screening. Additional special guests are to be announced.
