Here’s another weekly roundup of things to do in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami– all cities where The Standard Hotel resides in. We just figured you could use a quickie checklist to help get you out of the hotel and into the groove.
If you happen to be staying in Miami this week, we’re very excited to invite you to the launching of Miami & the Beaches Environmental Film Festival. The event will showcase this year’s top environmental documentaries from around the world. Expect to see films ranging from electric cars to disappearing bees to gas pipes in Ireland to the loss of our night sky.
The film festival opens its doors this Thursday, Oct. 20th at 7:00 pm at the Miami Beach Colony Theater with the screening of Revenge of the Electric Car. It also includes screenings at the Miami Beach Cinematheque on Saturday & Sunday, with a free public screening at the New World Symphony SoundScape WallCast this Friday night, Oct. 21, at 9:30 pm. You can learn more about the schedule of films and purchase tickets at the website: Miami Beach Environmental Film Festival. For questions, contact 305.534.3825 or email email@example.com.
