Why watch the Oscars at home all by yourself or throw your own party, when you can watch the Academy Awards on the Englert’s big screen? Bring your friends and enjoy alive screening of the Academy Awards at our HOLLYWOOD LIVE! event. The big event this year will benefit FilmScene, The Englert, the Coralville Center for Performing Arts, and City Circle Acting Company.
The event will be on both floors of the Englert this year. On the main floor/orchestra level: watch the show, enjoying movie-themed food and a cash bar, or take it step further buy a deluxe $50 ticket to access champagne cocktails and deluxe hors d’oeuvres in the Englert’s Douglas and Linda Paul Gallery on the balcony level.
All patrons are encouraged to compete for prizes in the Best Oscar-Themed Food Contest, the Best Dressed Guest or Best Costumed Guest Contest and the Guess the Oscars Contest. 200 grab bags with a variety of prizes (some super deluxe) will be sold for $5/bag or 5/$20 until they are gone! The night would not be complete without our traditional lip syncing contest. This year the featured contest song will be Disney’s Frozen “Let It Go” Sequence Performed by Idina Menzel.
The festivities begin at 6:00 PM when doors are opened. Patrons are invited to be photographed on the red carpet in order to enter the “best dressed” contests, to fill out their ballots, visit the bar and enjoy tasty treats. The Academy Awards presentation starts at 7:00 PM.
