Tony Rome, a 1967 film starring Frank Sinatra and Jill St. John, will be the feature on Wednesday, April 25, 2018. In keeping with our "made in Florida" movie theme, Tony Rome was filmed at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach while Sinatra performed his shows there in the evening. A daughter of a wealthy businessman is found drunk and unconscience in a hotel room with a piece of jewelry missing. Later, Sinatra's business partner is found dead. The film is a real "whodunit".
