Southpaw – the magic begins.

It was a typical day at the office. Then suddenly, I got the call from a woman who told me she worked for a movie production company based out of Pittsburgh. 

Her name was Bonnie, and her client (director Antoine Fuqua of ˜Training Day) wanted to hire our casino games for his ‘Monte Carlo’ scene in the new Southpaw movie. Bonnie informed me that the request was to find Pittsburgh’s best authentic casino gaming tables.

Is this happening?

They found Elite Casino Events searching the web, and after shopping the local market and speaking with me, they quickly decided to hire us!

Bonnie knew that our beautiful custom-designed casino gaming tables would be perfect for their Monte Carlo scene. This scene is where the main character Billy Hope (played by Jake Gyllenhaal), hosts a fundraiser for ‘Children’s Clubs of America,’ a charity true to his heart.

Yes, this is happening!

Here’s the new trailer to the movie ‘Southpaw’ with the ‘Monte Carlo Casino Night’ scene shown while Billy speaks to the crowd. His wife, Maureen, is played by the beautiful Rachael McAdams.

They recruited our team as casino dealers, attendees, security, news reporters, and extras for the movie. The Monte Carlo scene shows (me) the girl at the craps table patiently waiting while ‘Billy Hope’ gives his endorsement speech.

Southpaw moments. 

We helped the movie by providing elegant, beautiful tables for their Monte Carlo scene and recruiting 30 of Pittsburgh’s finest entertainers to be extras in the film! 

I had the privilege of introducing our favorite casino dealer Dana to 50 Cent, and he danced her around the floor like Cinderella. She was in awe and giddy. That just made my day!

It’s on the down-low – don’t tell!

Here are a few images from the movie set. (Shhhh!) Because we’re not supposed to share these images as the movie is a big secret until it hits theaters next year. We plan on having our own red carpet premiere party, and we already have the red carpet in-house! That works out so well for us. We cannot wait to see the movie’s final cut when it hits theaters on 7/24! Let us know if you see Southpaw!
