Hollywood is about to become all La La Land when the 89th annual Academy Awards takes place at L.A.’s Dolby Centre Sunday.
That’s when the world’s eyes will be tuned in to the Oscar broadcast to watch all the glitz and glamour of the red carpet, and learn who will receive the highest honours in filmmaking.
The Vernon Towne Cinema is once again hosting an Academy Awards live broadcast on its big screen in high definition.
All profits from the party-like event are going to the North Okanagan Hospice Society, which runs the Hospice House in Vernon.
“It is a great charity,” said Towne Cinema owner Gerry Sellars. “My mom passed away there and the environment and staff there are incredible, so we are trying to help them as much as possible.”
Emceed by Kiss FM’s Jason Armstrong, ticket holders can walk the red carpet at 4 p.m. The awards’ broadcast starts at 5:30 p.m.
“There will be door prizes, a wine bar, and Woolley & Company Lawyers has sponsored the event, so it should be a fun time for everyone,” said Sellars. “We are encouraging everyone to dress up and make a party of it.”
Advance tickets are available at the Bean Scene, Hospice House, and the Towne Cinema box office.
