Andrew Saffir

Thursday, July 14, 2011

As the founder of Cinema Society, New York native Andrew Saffir lures Hollywood’s hottest names to Manhattan by hosting very, very V.I.P. screenings and after-party dinners. Think Madonna who unveiled her directorial debut Filth and Wisdom at a Cinema Society premiere. And then there was the advance showing of the Oscar winner The Social Network, which reunited the film’s co-star Justin Timberlake with his former fellow *NSYNC boy band member, Lance Bass—even if it was just for one fabulous party. Cinema Society invites are some of the coveted emails in the city, and frequent “Cinema” (as regulars call it) guests include everyone from Iman to Howard Stern to Tory Burch. Talk about a great mix. Saffir and his long-time partner Daniel Benedict are two of the most popular out-and-about men in New York.
