Delectable, globetrotting canapés will be spied and served by Celebrity Chef Adrianne Calvo. Official Movie posters and film t-shirts from Columbia Pictures will be given to all guests as well as receive OPI a branded ‘Skyfall’ Nail polish Gift Basket”.
Caviar treats reminiscent of black market treats will be sampled as a few privileged guests get to walk among the largest collection of James Bond cars and memorabilia, including the original “Golden Gun”.
All the spies in attendance will be able to view the trailer as they enjoy the reception, only to be kidnapped and shuttled to an undisclosed private theater to walk the red carpet, take pictures with the latest addition to the Bond Exhibit and watch the “Skyfall” film on opening night in a very special private screening. All those present will be the first witnesses to the unveiling of the new additions.
