On Friday, a special advanced screening of the new film Into the Woods at Guild Hall—hosted by East Hampton resident Ina Garten along with producer John DeLuca and director Rob Marshall—was nearly a bust when a copy of the film got delayed in transit, Page Six reports.
After the VIP crowd enjoyed Garten’s appetizers, it was learned that the film had yet to arrive in East Hampton. According to Page Six, the guests were invited to come back several hours later, once the film was flown via helicopter from Manhattan to the Hamptons.
Among the guests were East Hampton’s Debra Messing, Water Mill’s Rudy Giuliani, Sandy Gallin, Amagansett’s Blythe Danner, Donna Karan, Jordan Roth, Jeffrey Seller, Scott Cooper, Alina Cho, Serena Altschul and Rula Jebreal.
Just saw a screening of #IntoTheWoods. MAGICAL. Truly. Thank you Rob Marshall.
