An Awards Night Celebration of the Movies
Presented by FilmScene and The Englert Theatre.
Join us on Hollywood’s biggest night for a big screen movie celebration hosted by local entertainers Megan Gogerty and Kristy Hartsgrove Mooers! Walk down the blue carpet (yes, blue!), pose for the flash bulbs, predict the winners, compete for prizes, and dig in to delicious dishes and drink.
Come dressed in your finest (or just as you are), and celebrate the movies and you may go home with a prize for Best Dressed, Best Movie-Related Costume, or Best Oscar Forecasting. This event takes place at the Englert Theatre.
Blue Carpet Tickets: $45 – SOLD OUT includes complimentary Lion Bridge beer, house red and white wine, and a generous spread of food from Clinton Street Social Club as well as exclusive access to balcony seating and the Englert Gallery / Lounge. Food will be served until 9:00 p.m.
Movie Lover Tickets: $10 Suggested Donation – Just stopping by for friends and fun? Snag a $10 advance ticket or donate what you can at the door and enjoy the cash bar and light snacks on the orchestra level.
