The Cinema Society and Lionsgate presented the premiere of The Next Three Days at the Ziegfeld Theater with a dinner party afterwards at The Oak Room of the Plaza Hotel. Naturally The Oak Room is a famous spot, but I’m not sure the room has hosted so many famous faces at one time. It was celeb gridlock. To the point that yours truly had to tell the security guard to let Patti Smith in! He didn’t recognize her and I assured him she was a famous rock star. Who else was there? The film’s stars Russell Crowe, Elizabeth Banks, Olivia Wilde, Liam Neeson, Brian Dennehy and other big stars like Ben Stiller, Maria Bello, Viola Davis, Raiin Wilson, Ari Graynor, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody and¬†writer/director Paul Haggis. Check out the gallery for more major movie stars and of course the socialites that orbit around them at every Cinema Society party.
