The 21st Annual Oscar Night Party:
"And the Winner Is..."
It’s LINCOLN against the field! Or is it ARGO? Will Spielberg or Affleck triumph? Or will this historical epic go the way of Saving Private Ryan? We’ll all know when the Oscars are handed out February 24th. You say your tickets to the Hollywood Dolby Theater haven’t arrived? Not to worry. You can join hundreds of your fellow film fans at the Washington, DC Film Society’s annual bash, “AND THE WINNER IS….” and watch THE 85th Academy Awards broadcast LIVE ON THE BIG SCREEN. Doors will open at 6:30pm on Sunday, February 24, 2013 at the Arlington Cinema ‘N’ Drafthouse (2903 Columbia Pike in Arlington, VA). The Red Carpet Broadcast starts at 7:00pm and the main event gets underway at 8:00pm.
DC Film Society friends, the knowledgeable and entertaining local film critics, Bill Henry and Tim Gordon, will once again guide us through the ins and outs of Hollywoodland. Will it be Jessica Chastain or Jennifer Lawrence? Alan Arkin or Robert deNiro? Can anyone top Anne Hathaway’s solo in Les Miserables? Or will there be a surprise dark horse? You will have the chance to outguess the experts in our “Predict The Winners” contest, participate in trivia contests throughout the evening and bid in our silent auction (cash or check only please) on all kinds of neat items such as film and theatre gift certificates and tickets and movie promotional goodies. There will be autographed film posters and DVDs signed by filmmakers who have been in the DC area for screenings over the last year - some by a few very big names in Hollywood (more details to come). Of course the Arlington Cinema ‘N’ Drafthouse is always well stocked with a broad selection of tasty food and a variety of beverages to satisfy your cinematic appetite.
This 21st annual FUN-raiser will once again be held in support of Filmfest DC, the Film Society’s parent organization, the Washington, DC International Film festival.
