When the guests (movie stars) arrived, they were greeted with a red carpet up the stairs and their names on stars.... a walk of fame if you will. On the front door, was a "Welcome to the Premier of Addie's 10th Birthday" poster
Inside the guests were greeted with Hollywood sunglasses and an autograph book.
The "theater" included a movie behind curtains, a poster showing the movies being featured (American Girl of course), and a concession stand. This was the girls' favorite part! They earned tickets by playing various games, including "Pass the Popcorn" where they passed a piece of popcorn made from construction paper from one friend to the next on a straw in their mouth.
The tickets they earned were then used to purchase various concessions at the concession stand including movie candy, popcorn, pop and nachos. There were also "free" popcorn themed cupcakes (the popcorn is actually marshmallows).
