Miami Marine Stadium 50th Anniversary Party

Miami Marine Stadium 50th Anniversary PartySunday, December 22, 6:30pm-9:30pm – Coral Gables Museum, 285 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables

This December, the Miami Marine Stadium turns 50! To celebrate, Friends of Miami Marine Stadium will host a screening of the Elvis Presley film “Clambake”–scenes of which were shot at the Marine Stadium in 1967. The evening will include a “Latin clambake” featuring paella, a cash bar, and a comfy seat to watch the film. The event will be held outdoors in the patio (indoors if necessary) at the Coral Gables Museum currently featuring the exhibit “Concrete Paradise: Miami Marine Stadium.” The film, which tells the story of an heir to an oil fortune (Elvis Presley) who trades places with a water ski instructor at a Florida Hotel, features Elvis in his youth as a budding heartthrob and submerses him in the 1960’s surfside antics of the South Florida lifestyle. Those attending the screening will see the vintage hydroplane boat racing shot on sight at the Marine Stadium! Admission is $25.
