Derby Party at Savor Cinema

Derby Party at Savor Cinema

By Rachel Galvin

Ladies in fine hats and men in their finery all came out to celebrate the 150th run for the roses at Savor Cinema in Ft. Lauderdale on May 4. Handsome horses and glamorous ladies greeted guests ready for photo opps on the red carpet before they went onto the patio to partake in the fun.

The annual derby party held on the patio included an open bar, cuisine and live entertainment. People could have a mint julep, dance and buy a raffle ticket to vote for their favorite horse to possibly win a prize. Then, once the horses lined up, people came inside to watch the race. And it was a photo finish with Mystik Dan winning in the end. Also, prizes were given out for the winning horse and also best dressed male and female and best hat. The event was sold-out and the packed crowd had a wonderful time.

This is one of Savor Cinema’s premier events every year. Savor Cinema is the headquarters for the Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival. But they also have films year-round. For more information, visit
