The Oscars Yellow Springs Style

Celebrate the Oscars at the Little Art Theatre
“Jeans ’n’ Jammies” - Feb.26

The Little Art Theatre in Yellow Springs will once again celebrate the Oscars with “Jeans ’n’ Jammies: The Oscars at the Little Art” on Sunday, Feb. 26. Plans call for the screening of the Awards Ceremony during which a cash bar will be available serving Little Artinis (custom created for the event by Shane Creepingbear of the Sunrise Café) at $7.00 a glass and wine for $5.00 a glass. The Oscars at the Little Art will be preceded at 6:00 p.m. by a pre-party at the Winds Café, just a short walk from the theater, where heavy appetizers and complimentary wine will be served thanks to Mary Kay Smith and Kim Korkan of the Winds Café. At 7:30 p.m. partygoers will proceed to the red carpet at the Little Art in time to catch the Oscars on the big screen – served up with free popcorn. For those who wish to go early, the Hollywood red carpet arrivals will be showing at the Little Art at 7:00 p.m.

Admission to the entire program is $50, of which $35 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 relaxed attire in public, they may opt for jeans. Prizes will be awarded for best Jammies for couple and individual, for correctly predicting winners in the major categories, and for winners of a movie trivia contest. Local actor Howard Shook will emcee the event.

The deadline for reservations is Feb. 22. Seating is limited to 150, so early reservations are recommended. They can be made online by clicking here, or by mailing a check to the Little Art Theatre, 247 Xenia Avenue, Yellow Springs, OH 45387, with names of guests and an e-mail address.
