Somewhere In Time

This is the perfect weekend for movie lovers who want to know the cinematic secrets of the timeless romantic classic and a chance to visit with many people who played a role in the movie. In 2015  the lovely Jane Seymour visited Grand Hotel for the 35th Anniversary of the film and the 25th Anniversary of Somewhere in Time Weekend. It was a year to remember. She surprised guests with a replica of the Elise McKenna’s dress she wore in the film.
