LAS VEGAS – June 28, 2016 – On Sunday, July 31, 2016, Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower will host the official premiere for Syfy’s “Sharknado: The 4th Awakens,” which was filmed in part at the iconic property.

Keeping true to “Sharknado” tradition, surprise celebrity cameos will also be featured in the new film, many of who will also be at the celebrity-packed soiree.
Following the star-studded movie premiere and red carpet, the cast will go to the official afterparty, “Cast Party With a Cause,” benefitting The Animal Foundation
. “Sharknado” fanatics are invited to attend the pool party to revel and take photos with cast members while viewing the new film at the hotel’s newly-remodeled Elation Pool. In addition to being able to take photos with select actors, there will also be food and beverages available for partiers to purchase.

“It was exciting being able to have Stratosphere and Las Vegas featured in such a fun and overthe-top movie,” said Michael McNamee, vice president of marketing at Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower. “We’re thrilled to host the premiere as well as have ‘Sharknado’ fans celebrate with the cast and invited celebrities at the Cast Party with a Cause after-party to raise funds for a great cause, The Animal Foundation.”
Five years after the East Coast was demolished in “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!,” the world has been sharknado-free until the sharks and nados start appearing in unexpected places, including Las Vegas. In addition to thrilling shark-fighting action, the global franchise will also reveal the highly-anticipated outcome of Tara Reid’s character, April Wexler, whose ultimate fate is decided based on the fan-voted #AprilLives or #AprilDies social media campaign.
