For eight years we have been spoiled by going to a yearly dinner at the Rosecliff Mansion in Newport RI. Many people are familiar with the ballroom since it was used to film scenes for the 1974 version of The Great Gatsby, The Betsy, High Society, True Lies, and Amistad. The structure and grounds are so grand, and truly amazing...this year I finally brought my camera along to capture a few photos:
The faces of these ceiling medallions (top right) have always creeped me out a little, they surround the perimeter of the ballroom so you are always being 'watched'.
