Suite time for Globes

GQ, American Cinematheque host pre-kudos bash

HOLLYWOOD — GQ and the American Cinematheque co-hosted a pre-Golden Globes party Friday in the Regent BevWilshire penthouse that the late socialite Caroline Ahmanson rented for decades, reportedly for less than $1,000 a month.

The elegant multiroom suite (an identical set of rooms was used for “Pretty Woman”) now goes for thousands a day. “Rent control, L.A.-style,” was the way Sony Classics co-topper Tom Bernard described the fantastic deal Ahmanson had.

As for the inaugural Cinematheque/GQ Globe event, Daily Variety editor in chief and Cinematheque board member Peter Bart said the idea was to emulate the Oscar Night Before party but be “more intimate and relaxed.”

Cinematheque chairman Rick Nicita said the event was “about movies: The Cinematheque shows them; the Globes honor them; and these are the people who make them.”

Among the film people on hand were Shirley MacLaine, Anthony Hopkins, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, Paula Wagner, Lawrence Bender, JC Spink and Jeff Daniels.
