"With a greater focus on outdoor gatherings, which brings friends and family together, the summer movie series is an ideal setting. And it gives people the opportunity to give back.” says Paula Masters, President and Managing Director for Fatboy USA.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) May 23, 2011
Fatboy USA announced today they will be partnering with the W Los Angeles-Westwood for their 5th anniversary summer movie series at WET, SHOW ME THE MOVIES! The highly anticipated SHOW ME THE MOVIES! Summer Cinema Series is used to help raise awareness and funds for Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles. For every $5 donation, guests will receive a ticket to be entered into a drawing for a one-night stay at W Los Angeles and for a Fatboy® prize package.
Fridays at sunset starting May 27th through September 2nd, guests will experience movie magic under a blanket of twinkling stars in the stylish yet relaxing surroundings of the W Los Angeles’ open-air WET pool. W Los Angeles and Fatboy will capture the spirit of drive-in theaters by transforming the iconic WET pool, into an ultimate outdoor movie theater complete with several 50” plasmas and a large projection screen, giving guests excellent viewing experience while lounging on a Fatboy® knapsack or Fatboy® avenue.
Paula Masters, President and Managing Director for Fatboy USA, believes the SHOW ME THE MOVIES series will be a huge hit again this year. "With a greater focus on outdoor gatherings, which inspires to bring friends and family together, the summer movie series is an ideal setting. And, it gives people the opportunity to give back.” Mrs. Masters goes on to say, "The Make-A-Wish Foundation does great work in hundreds of communities across the nation and we are proud to be working with them and the W Los Angeles to make wishes come true for children in and around Los Angeles."
As guests relax on a Fatboy and wait for the film to begin, they can indulge in a selection of summer-themed delectable theater favorites from The Backyard menu, created by new Executive Chef Dakota Weiss. Freshly popped popcorn from a classic popcorn cart as well as a variety of classic candies, artisanal cheese plate, specialty drinks, wine, and gourmet potato chips will be available to enhance the guest’s movie experience.
This delightfully lavish evening requires no reservations and admission is free. Guests can help make wishes come true by making a donation. Doors open at 7:00PM and guests are advised to arrive early, as space is limited and in high demand. Dinner and cabana reservations are available by calling 310.443.8218. W Los Angeles-Westwood is LA’s modern oasis – a contemporary chic retreat to fulfill every guest's whims and wishes, creating the picture perfect evening.
