Taylor Swift made a dazzling entrance into the Fairfax district of Los Angeles for the premiere of her highly anticipated Eras Tour concert film at The Grove. The star-studded event eclipsed even the glitz and glamour of an Oscar Best Song performance atop the Academy Museum.
The ambiance was nothing short of extraordinary, with the mall's fountain gushing forth pink water in honor of the occasion. Despite Swift's presence causing The Grove to close its doors for the day and streets to be sealed off, the premiere inside the 600 square foot space was a remarkably organized affair.
Taylor Swift made her grand entrance early in the evening, greeted by an ecstatic crowd of fans before she stepped inside. The fervent crowd of Swifties was separated from the VIP guests who graced the AMC The Grove 14, including Emmy winners Julia Garner and Mariska Hargitay, Adam Sandler, Flavor Flav, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Vice Chair Adam Fogelson, and Swift's proud parents, Andrea and Scott.
Also in attendance was Beyoncé, who is set to release her concert documentary "Renaissance" on December 1. Prior to the film screening, a reception was held featuring champagne and classic movie concessions, setting the stage for the highly-anticipated event.
The film finally commenced at around 8:40 p.m., with some attendees arriving as early as 5 p.m.
