The movie world’s greatest night of glamour is a glittering gala everyone can join in!
Stroll down the red carpet and pose for the paparazzi at the Varscona Theatre on Sunday February 24 as we celebrate the awarding of the 85th Academy Awards in a one of a kind Oscar event. Come and see the stars the way they were meant to be seen: Projected up on the big movie screen!
With the live broadcast projected larger than life live from Hollywood, the evening will magnify all the glitz, excitement, suspense and unintentional laughs that Oscar night is so famous for.
The party is hosted by the star struck duo of TOM EDWARDS and MATT ALDEN (in elegant evening wear supplied by Derks Formals). They will be providing commentary, comedy and live entertainment during those awkward breaks in the show, as well as awarding fabulous prizes throughout the night.
Predicting the winners in selected categories can win guests dinners for two provided by some of Edmonton’s finest dining establishments including The Upper Crust, The Elephant and Castle, The King and I, Da De O, The High Level Diner, Royal Pizza, Wok This Way, The New Asian Village, O2 on Whyte and The Next Act. With additional prizes from Magic Lantern Cinemas (The Princess Theatre) and The Videodrome awarded during the show.
Adding further momentum to that avalanche of prizes are the fabulous items available for silent auction including:
*A luxurious Night out In Old Strathcona (Dinner for 2 at The Keg, tickets to Shadow Theatre’s latest production and a night in a suite at the Varscona Hotel)
*A first class Dinner and a Movie (Dinner at the Fantasyland Hotel’s L2 Grill followed by a movie of your choice at the Scotiabank Theatre)
*An elegant Dinner and a Play (Dinner at Packrat Louie followed by a play at the Walterdale Theatre)
*A thrilling West Edmonton Mall gift basket (including a Family All-Attractions Pass)
*A sophisticated wine tasting dinner at Continental Treat (with five course meal, cheese buffet and live jazz music)
*And much, much more!
Complementary catering for the night is courtesy of ACCENT European Lounge (providing their much loved mid-show wiener schnitzel) and The Funky Pickle (bringing an assortment of pizza for the cocktail hour).
Awards on screen and on stage! Live entertainment! Comedy, music and dance! Fabulous fashions on the red carpet (both in Hollywood and in Edmonton)! Awkward acceptance speeches! On stage musical numbers! Inexplicable film montages! All the excitement, shocks and schadenfreude that only Oscar night can deliver!
