In case anyone reading this site couldn’t pick up on this subtlety, BYT loves nothing more than a good party. We’re into the What-the-F*ck-Was-I-Doing-on-That-Coffee-Table parties, the Dance-‘Til-You-Can’t-Dance-No-More parties, the Hide-in-the-Host’s-Closet-‘Til-the-Cops-Leave parties. We advocate sweatbands, glitter, fake blood, bodypaint, a playlist for every mood, dance-offs and those grins you sort of kind of remembered wearing the whole night. And what better way to capture these moments than the majesty of film? We partnered up with our party-planning friends at Tixelated to bring you some of the greatest cinema parties ever conceived.
(Don’t believe our party cred? Philippe Chetrit is a Fatback DJ and founder of Tixelated, a quick and fun way for friends to help fund your parties. So not only does he go to a ton of parties, he also thinks about them a lot. This Friday he is hosting a crazy flip cup competition. Check it out.)
This is the party we would never admit wanting to go but totally wish we got the invite. Dress for success.
How sweet would it be if you were at a party and Stephen Dorff bumped into you then it started raining blood???
- The Matrix
Most epic. Rave vs Sex.
- The Big Lebowski
Party I am most likely to throw myself. Jackie Treehorn treats objects like women man.
- Dirty Dancing
Classic. I brought a watermelon.
- House Party 2
- Old School
Tastes so good when it touches your lips.
- Carlito’s Way
Nevermind, this is the party we would throw ourselves.
- Dazed And Confused
One of the best moments of a party happens before you even get there. Getting ready to go out, and the journey to the party itself creates an unbridled sense of anticipation. Dazed And Confused is basically one long piece about a journey to the end of the night
- Animal House
Never have college kids cared as much about Etruscanian formal wear from 1200 BC as they do when Otis Redding is involved.
- The Godfather
- Almost Famous
