The folks at Indyssey Entertainment, whose Grand Classics film series features Hollywood’s hottest (Oscar winners Benicio Del Toro, Sofia Coppola, Tim Robbins, and next month’s host Natalie Portman) presenting their favorite flicks, launched Grand Classics Films With Style Tuesday night at Soho House, to an uber-glam crowd of society bigwigs and fashion heavyweights. Michael Kors and Hamish Bowles hosted the inaugural screening, presenting Shampoo, the drop-dead stylish film of 1975, that starred Warren Beatty, Goldie Hawn, and Julie Christie. Goldie, in a letter she wrote for Michael and Hamish and the Grand Classics team, told of her favorite on-set experiences while making the film, and closed with “One never knows whether our films will hold up or even matter as the years go on. This one has become the classic for many reasons, all deserved. Great minds make great films, and there were a few masterminds – not to mention Master B’s (as Jack Nicholson called Warren) - on that one. Lucky me.”

Following Goldie’s letter, Michael and Hamish took the stage to introduce the film. The always sartorially splendid Hamish gave a smart and savvy overview of the film, while fashion superstar Michael said the film “is about sex and style, and those are two things that never go out of style."

The Caron Foundation, one of America's oldest and most respected addiction treatment facilities, embarked upon a major effort to de-stigmatize addiction treatment for adolescents by opening a Recovery Center in New York aimed at adolescents and their families.

By utilizing music, dance and art in treatment, the new Caron facility will make recovery a creative outlet for young people. And importantly, the center will incorporate the whole family into treatment, which is crucial to the child's long-term recovery.

Consistently listed among the top alcohol and drug addiction treatment providers nationally, the not-for-profit Caron Foundation annually treats more than 4,000 patients from across the U.S. and abroad. Caron offers residential treatment and outpatient programs for adults and adolescents, as well as families affected by the disease of addiction. Caron operates a residential treatment center in Wernersville, in southeastern Pennsylvania, and Renaissance Institute of Palm Beach, an extended care treatment center in Boca Raton, Florida. It also has regional offices in Philadelphia and New York.
