If you're in Newport on Wednesdays this summer, check out Vanderbilt Grace's summer movie rooftop series. The hotel has turned its roof terrace into an outdoor theater, and starting July 11 will be showing old favorites and classics, including "The Great Gatsby," "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," "Double Indemnity," "Citizen Kane," "Chocolat" and others. The movies air every Wednesday at 8:30 p.m., through the end of August. Cost is $15 which includes truffle popcorn; champagne is available for purchase. Reservations aren't a bad idea but not required, hotel officials said, by calling 401-846-6200.

Down below, the hotel's upscale restaurant Muse has a "Vintage Vanderbilt" menu that was unveiled in May, modeled on a Vanderbilt family menu from 1912 created by Grand Chef Relais & Chateaux Jonathan Cartwright. The menu includes cream of mushroom and lobster broth; oysters with mignonette sauce; and a main course of turkey supreme with roasted potatoes or sea bass with hollandaise and grilled asparagus. Vintage dessert options include chocolate meringues with coffee ice cream or roasted peaches with cinnamon ice cream.

A "Vintage Vanderbilt Experience" package is now being offered, with pricing starting at $995 for two, and including a two-night stay, welcome gift, daily champagne breakfast for two, a Vintage Vanderbilt five-course dinner for two with wine pairings, and two Newport mansion passports to tour five mansions. If that's too pricey, the hotel offers a $599 option for a one-night stay, which includes the package components and one Newport mansion tour.
