Front Row at the Movies
Ever Been to the Oscars?
Reviewed by Shirrel Rhoades
Hey, movie buffs -- ever been to the Oscars? You know, the annual lovefest that Hollywood throws each year for itself, handing out little golden statuettes as prizes for Best Picture, Best Actor, etc.
The Red Carpet interviews, the haut-couture gowns, the arm candy, the whoopla is almost as much fun as listening to the winners burble acceptance speeches that sometimes come out "You like me, you really like me!"
This Sunday the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) will bring us the 87th Academy Awards presentations.
But you don’t have to fly to the West Coast to enjoy the festivities.
Key West’s Tropic Cinema again brings the Oscars to you -- live!
On February 22, the Tropic offers two ways to enjoy the 2015 Oscars:
A limited number of VIP tickets will admit moviegoers to a 6 p.m. champagne reception, along with food, and special seating in the Carper Theater … plus a gift swag bag. Just like being in Tinseltown.
And those who want to forego the VIP experience can join in at 7 p.m., receiving two drink tickets and hors d’ouevres along with the show.
Both Tropic members and non-members can plan on joining their friends watching the Red Carpet interviews, the Oscar presentations, the speeches by the winners, while rooting for your favorite movies of the year to win.
