The first in our Deco film series with the Miami Beach Cinematheque is Edmund Goulding’s 1932 film Grand Hotel, a Berlin-based film. Originally conceived as a novel and then a play, this black-and-white classic features a day of Art Deco drama as the six main characters experience theft, lust, gambling, and death. Stop by The Wolfsonian for a 4pm tour of Deco: Luxury to Mass Market before taking in the film’s iconic Cedric Gibbons set design at the Cinematheque at 5pm.
