Classic Film Night By The Pool

Saturday evening, we invite you to join us poolside for an evening of cinema, cocktails and snacks. Enjoy the classic film, How To Steal A Million: Nicole's father, a legendary art collector, lends a prized piece to the Paris museum. Unfortunately, the art is a fake and before tests can be done, Nicole enlists the services of "society burglar" Simon Demott to steal the million dollar statue. 

Warner Brothers Studio Tour

The conference wraps up, but it doesn’t end there. Join us at Warner Brothers Studio, where we will get to go behind the scenes and see real sets, costumes, props, and sound stages! You may even see some celebrities in action. See and interact with your favorites, from Harry Potter and Batman to Friends and Big Bang Theory.
