Celebrate the Oscars at the Little Art Theatre
Academy Awards, Yellow Springs style - Feb.25-27
Oscar-nominated film to be screened
The Little Art Theatre in will be holding a weekend-long celebration of the 2011 Academy Awards culminating in “Jeans ’n’ Jammies: The Oscars at the Little Art” on Sunday, Feb. 27. The Oscar-nominated film, "The Illusionist," has been booked for the week. It is nominated for Best Animated Feature Film along with "Toy Story 3" and "How To Train Your Dragon." Over the weekend, wine will be served during the movies for $5.00 a glass. On Sunday, screening at the Little Art of the televised ceremonies from Hollywood will be preceded at 6:30 p.m. by catered pre-parties at either the Arthur Morgan House or the home of Richard Lapedes and Maureen Lynch, both just a short walk from the theater. Partygoers will proceed to the red carpet at the Little Art in time to watch the Oscars on the big screen with wine (cash bar), popcorn and other treats. Prizes will be awarded for correctly predicting the winners in the major categories.
Admission to the Sunday evening party is $50, of which $40 is a tax deductible contribution to the nonprofit Little Art Theatre Association. Attendees are invited to come in their pajamas. But, if they are not comfortable with such relaxed attire in public, they may opt for wearing jeans. Prizes will be awarded in the “best jammies” category. Those who wear pajamas to the Friday or Saturday night movies will get a free popcorn.
The deadline for reservations is Feb. 23. The last Little Art fundraiser sold out early and, this time, seating is limited to 180, so early reservations are recommended.
