If you keep up with the AvenueInsider, you must be well aware that Andrew Saffir and his friends at the Cinema Society are pros at putting on a great party. Last night was no exception as they played host to the premiere of the much-anticipated remake of the Cult-Classic Footloose. Starring Dancing with the StarsJulianne Hough and former MTV DanceLife star Kenny Wormald, guests like Brad Goerski, Joe Zee, Nicole Miller and Christian Siriano couldn’t wait to get a taste of the kitschy flick.

Of course, there’s no premiere without a great after-party. Guests made their way to CATCH roof-top for a Svedka Vodka sponsored shindig. Stephen Baldwin and daughter Hailey mingled with Twilight star Peter Facinelli, Disney star Jake T. Austin, and former Real Housewife Kelly Bensimon. Couple of the hour Melissa George and Russell Simmons made an appearance as well as the two have certainly been busy making the rounds to nearly every major party this week. Much to our chagrin, there were no breakdancing circles or dance-offs to be seen, but the crowd of New Yorkers still got their dancing fix all night long.
