Available only through Rosewood Miramar Beach, the glamourous A Star is Born experience provides film fanatics with all-access passes to the most exclusive events at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, a highlight of Hollywood’s awards season. Following a sumptuous dinner at the resort’s signature oceanfront restaurant, Caruso's, the three-night package will begin by whisking guests away via a custom Rolls-Royce Ghost to the historic Riviera Theater to enjoy a private screening of their choice of any 2020 Academy Award-nominated film. The next night, a fun-filled evening with A-list celebrities at the 2020 Maltin Modern Master Award Ceremony, with preferred VIP seating at The Arlington Theater, will grant a further glimpse inside the glamorous lifestyle of the industry’s elite. Back at Rosewood Miramar Beach, guests will get the Hollywood treatment at Sense, A Rosewood Spa, followed by a private hair and makeup session with The Wall Group Los Angeles' celebrity makeup artist, Kate Lee, and hair stylist to the stars, Renato Campora. Once “red carpet ready,” the Rolls-Royce will once more carry guests away to make a grand entrance at The Arlington alongside the industry’s top talent for the 2020 Virtuoso Awards, an exclusive awards ceremony honoring next-generation actors and actresses.
