by Mara Siegler · June 22, 2011

    Liv Tyler went to PH-D at the new Dream Downtown; Florence Welch enjoyed a private dinner by Chef Sam Talbot; Jessica Stam hung out at The Lot for Off Duty; Christian Siriano helped out theater kids;  Matchbox 20 performed for Mercedes Benz and more. Last night's parties' clock on the wall has been stuck at 3am for days!

    THE CINEMA SOCIETY & GREY GOOSE host the screening & after party for "THE LEDGE"

    Where: Landmark Sunshine Cinema, Penthouse (PH-D) at Dream Downtown

    Who Was There: Liv Tyler, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Chapman, David Schwimmer, Paul Haggis, Kellan Lutz, Rupert Friend, Jack McCollough, Lazaro Hernandez, Sebastian Stan, Bebe Buell, Stephen Baldwin,  Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place!!!), Duncan Sheik, Olivia Palermo, Daniel Benedict, Stella Schnabel, Olivier Sarkozy, Debbie Bancroft, Nicole Miller, Imogen Lloyd-Webber, Genevieve Jones, Ann Dexter-Jones, Andrew Saffir

    Other Details: The Ledge is being called Brokeback Mountain for Atheists and stars Patrick Wilson as a Christian fundamentalist who discovers his wife, played by Liv Tyler, is having an affair with a non-believer. Told in thriller form, it is actually much better than it sounds. After the screening, guests head over to the new Penthouse at The Dream Hotel where they enjoyed the Grey Goose cocktails and the view. Liv looked genuinely excited that her friends came (as if they would miss it) and mingled the room giving soft spoken thank yous to those who attended. A ridiculously sexy Rupert Friend hung out with some bro pals drinking at a banquette and super-religious Steven Baldwin managed to make it to the party, meaning he did not implode upon watching what could be deemed an atheist propaganda flick.
