FAU National Alumni Association Hosts Private Screenings of 'Sex and the City' at Muvico Palace 20
More than 100 Attend
BOCA RATON, FL (June 25, 2008) – The FAU National Alumni Association (FAUNAA) hosted two private screenings of the movie Sex and the City at the Muvico Palace 20’s Premier VIP theater in Boca Raton. The first screening, held on Monday, June 2, brought more than 70 people to the theater for a lively evening that also included food and drinks on site at Bogart’s Bar and Grille. This special showing sold out two hours after the email invitation was distributed to the FAU alumni constituency. Due to the popularity of this event, a second showing and reception took place at Muvico on Thursday, June 5. This screening had an audience of close to 50 alumni and friends.
Sex and the City has been drawing record numbers to theaters this summer. Recognizing the appeal of this movie, particularly to female viewers, the FAUNAA saw this as an opportunity to bring together women alumni.
“With women comprising more than 50 percent of FAU’s alumni body, we planned this event specifically for women,” said Lee Collier ’99, ’08, director of alumni relations. “Most of those in the audience were women, but a few men did attend. It was a great success, which we hope to recreate with another screening event in the fall.”
“What a great feeling to have been part of such a fabulous and unique alumni get-together,” said Stella Quintero, an alumnus from the class of 2002. “As soon as I opened the e-vite, I responded. I’m so glad to have attended and thrilled to be part of the FAU alumni family.”
