True Romance, a movie that many of you undoubtedly love, just celebrated its 20th anniversary, last year. Well, this year there’s going to be a festival to celebrate the much beloved film written Quentin Tarantino and directed by Tony Scott.
The official press release states:
It’s been over 20 years since True Romance hit theaters. Now Sean Healy and Dan Storm Productions are proud to present the True Romance Fest, an unforgettable 2-day weekend event at the world- famous Safari Inn of Burbank, CA. On location where one of the most intense scenes in the film between Patricia Arquette. James Gandolfini and Christian Slater was shot, the exclusive gathering (Fri. May 2nd & Sat. May 3rd) will be hosted by the film’s very own Bronson Pinchot (Elliot Blitzer).
On Friday, VIP festival attendees can enjoy a day at the pool and then relax at a drink mixer in the evening, along with special guests to be announced, followed by karaoke True Romance style!
Saturday begins with a hearty breakfast and meet & greet with Bronson Pinchot, and culminates with an outdoor sunset screening of the cult classic, True Romance, starring Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette. Fans are encouraged to dress up as their favorite characters for our costume contest and take pictures in the “you’re so cool” True Romance photo booth. There also will be a display of original movie props, including Clarence and Alabama’s wedding rings, as well as over 500 stills from the film, many of which have never been seen by the public. Q&A with cast and crew follows the show.
This is a one-of-a-kind, premier event that will celebrate this classic film from writer Quentin Tarantino, director Tony Scott, and a long list of renowned actors – including Brad Pitt, Gary Oldman, Christopher Walken, Dennis Hopper, Samuel L. Jackson, James Gandolfini, Michael Rapaport, and Bronson Pinchot. Space is VERY limited and expected to sell out. Hotel and VIP packages are available beginning February 3rd.
