When Elvis wanted to have fun in Memphis, he would often go late at night to rent out a local theater, so he could enjoy his time without being mobbed by fans. He’d often arrive at about midnight and stay until 3:30 or 4 a.m.—sometimes until dawn. The winning bidder, along with up to 24 friends and family, can live it up like Elvis with a private double feature movie screening for family and friends at The Guest House Theater. Do it as Elvis would with a midnight screening of some of his favorite movies or select a time of your choosing and screen some of your favorite films. The experience includes popcorn, movie candy, jumbo pretzels, soda, water and other snacks for all in attendance.

Experience cannot be resold or re-auctioned. Cannot be transferred. Travel and accommodations are not included. We expect all winning bidders and their guests to conduct themselves appropriately when attending an experience. To be scheduled at a mutually agreed upon date, based on Guest House Theater availability. Blackout dates may apply. Experience must be scheduled and redeemed by December 31, 2019. Use of the Guest House Theater limited to four (4) hours. Winning bidder required to supply selected films on Blu-ray or DVD for screening. Alcohol not included. Additional add-ons options available for an extra cost through The Guest House at Graceland at time of booking. Graceland reserves the right to refuse to show any film not considered appropriate. Please be aware that Tennessee sales (9.25%) & tourism tax (5%) will be charged at the time of purchase on the final price (hammer plus buyers premium) for this experience at Graceland. 100% of the hammer price will be donated to the Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation. Please consult with your tax advisor regarding any potential deduction for this experience.

The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation 

The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation (EPCF), a 501(c)3 organization, was formed by Graceland/Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. in 1984 to continue Elvis’ own tradition of generosity and community service, and to honor his memory. All of the EPCF’s funds are used for charitable donations — nothing is deducted for staffing or other operating costs. The foundation has assisted numerous charities over the years and has a longstanding relationship with the College of Communications and Fine Arts at the University of Memphis where the Elvis Presley Endowed Scholarship Fund was created. Also, dear to Elvis’ heart, the foundation has supported outstanding Memphis-based charitable organizations, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the National Civil Rights Museum. The foundation receives a portion of its overall income from Graceland/Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc.  A meaningful amount of the EPCF’s funding also comes from donations made by Elvis fan clubs and individual Elvis fans and admirers from around the world.
