It's cold outside, but the battle for the Oscars is heating up!


Can a unique film 12 years in the making take home the big prize? Can Michael Keaton complete his comeback with his portrayal of an actor making his comeback? Will the nomination of two films about scientific geniuses cancel each other out? All these questions and more will be answered on Oscar night and you’ll be missing out on loads of fun if you stay home. So, come on out to the Washington, DC Film Society’s 23rd annual “And The Winner Is…” Oscar night party where you get a lot more than the show itself. The 87th Academy Awards will be back LIVE ON THE BIG SCREEN on Sunday, February 22, 2015 at the Arlington Cinema ‘N’ Drafthouse located at 2903 Columbia Pike in Arlington, VA. Ticket sales at 6:30 p.m. Doors open and the Red Carpet pre-show at 7:00 p.m. Oscars broadcast at 8:30 p.m.

DC Film Society Director Michael Kyrioglou announced that our ever-popular DC film critics Bill Henry and Tim Gordon will be back to give you the skinny on who’s up, who’s down, who’s in, and who’s out, as you decide your picks in the “Joe Barber Predict The Winners” contest and place your bids in the Silent Auction. Not to mention the door prizes and promotional goodies from the movie studios!
