Originally written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, The famed Great Gatsby tale follows the decadent life of the young and mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby and his quixotic passion for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan. It is a tale of idealism, excess and a caution against the American Dream, all set against the backdrop of the Jazz age.

This is the first in a series of big movie premieres that will be hosted by Destination Magazine and SHK Consulting in the coming year.
