Kingsman: The Secret Service
On February 9, 2015 Twentieth Century Fox and 21st Century Fox showcased a special screening on their newest blockbuster, Kingsman: The Secret Service. Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn, Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization based in Britain that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid, Taron Egerton, into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius, played by Samuel L. Jackson.
THE FIRM, formerly known as Samantha Sackler Productions, transformed the sidewalk in front of the School of Visual Arts Theater in NYC into 60’ red carpet for the stars to walk with the movie’s title treatment and the Kingsman logo as the backdrop. The screening brought out some of Hollywood’s finest including Egerton, Jackson, Colin Firth, Mick Jagger, Kevin Bacon, Magic Johnson and many others. The evening continued as special guests were invited to the High Line Hotel’s Refectory to enjoy the after party. As the space coincidentally featured a hand carved quote from the movie, “Manners Maketh Man” above the fireplace. The cast marveled in all of the small details THE FIRM brought forth from the movie. Custom decanters with the Kingsman logo and Dalmore scotch were placed on each of the VIP tables, a nod they give to each of the fallen Kingsman. Custom spy glasses were made for a statue that overlooked the entire room and black umbrellas adorned the entry way, both key survival gadgets for the spies. Sliders and fries were one of the favorite tray passed appetizers, pulled from a hilarious scene in the movie. Signature British dishes including beef Wellington, Shepherd’s pie, and fish n’ chips were offered on one of the food stations continuing with the U.K. vibe. We used an array of black masculine furniture to pull off the movies theme of old world meets modern technology. We used dark purple as an accent color and brought in eggplant linens with dark purple Callas, Ranunculus and dark burgundy Amaryllis floral arrangements.
