Formal white dinner jackets are guaranteed to make an impressionable entrance, even at a James Bond Skyfall premiere.
A few days before opening night, at a very limited premiere at the Malco Paradiso theater in Memphis, Tenn., a group from The Crescent Club in Memphis arrived in true Bond fashion, dressed to the nines in classic cocktail attire after attending a delightful cocktail mixer at the Club.
Through Columbia Pictures, the Club obtained two dozen passes for the private viewing and invited some of the Club’s newest Members, Bell Ringers, Board of Governors and Committee Members to attend.
The Club challenged the attendees by offering to make a donation to the Memphis Music Foundation for each gentlemen who came in a white jacket. The result was a glamorous group and a near $500 donation to the worthy foundation, which helps offer music lessons and instruments to children who cannot afford them.
Once they were at the theater, a representative from Columbia Pictures invited Club Manager Charles Shepherd to address the packed theater. Shepherd explained the meaning behind the white jackets and drew attention to the great work the Club was doing within the community.
If you missed out on Skyfall, stay tuned for more upcoming Columbia Pictures events at The Crescent Club!
