After most–nay, all–Cinema Society screenings, AVENUEinsider finds itself blissfully happy, thinking “thankyoumoreplease…” and same rings true after the recent screening of the film bearing that title.

The film follows 6 New Yorkers who are trying to juggle love, friendship, and the idea of adulthood. Co-hosted by Tommy Hilfiger, the after party of HappyThankYouMorePlease garnered the film’s director, writer and star Josh Radnor and pals to the 18th floor of The Standard. Guests such as Malin Akerman, Zoe Kazan, Pablo Schreiber, Carey Mulligan and Adrian Grenier, kept quite happy at the Boom Boom Room with glasses of Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi wine in hand.

Other notables included Gabourey Sidibe, Ed Westwick, Dree Hemingway (looking down-right amazing in her Tommy Hilfiger skirt, sheer top and red lips), Tom Cavanagh, Russell Simmons and pal John Mayer, Bryan Batt of “Mad Men”, Steve Guttenberg, NY Knicks’ Amar’e Stoudemire, Will Estes of “Blue Bloods”, Daniel Benedict, Katie Lee, Richard Meier, Karen Duffy, Frederique Van Der Wal, Drew Nieporent, Thom Filicia, Kelly Bensimon, Alex Lundqvist, Fern Mallis, Jennifer Creel, CNN’s Alina Cho, Bettina Zilkha, Cinema Society Founder Andrew Saffir, and producers Jesse Hara, Jimmy Balodimas, Bingo Gubelmann, Rupert Hope, Benji Kohn, Chris Papavasiliou, Austin Stark, Peter Sterling, & Glenn Williamson.

As always, Cinema Society, you’ve made us Happy. Thank you. More (screenings) Please!
