Don your most glamorous gown or your coziest popcorn-munching duds — the 92nd annual Academy Awards Show will be broadcast in the Florida Keys at Key West’s Tropic Cinema (416 Eaton St.) on Sunday, Feb. 9. The Tropic staff and board of directors will be present and dressed to the nines for the 8 p.m. screening at the beloved nonprofit movie house.
In the generous spirit of the event, the Tropic Cinema will be offering free popcorn and champagne along with a cash bar and small bites from its friends at the Flaming Buoy Filet Company next door. You can get lucky at the silent auction, and add your best picks to the annual Oscar Prognosticators Pool — the top three ballots will win Academy Award swag bags of their very own.
The Tropic Cinema will open its doors and roll out the red carpet at 7 p.m. The Peggy Dow Theater is rented for a private screening, but if you are interested in your own exclusive Hollywood experience, there are still theaters available for rent.
If you fancy an Oscar feast before the show, combined tickets for the Oscar screening plus a meal at the Flaming Buoy Filet Company are available for $85 ($75 for members). Don’t worry about missing a moment of the Red Carpet because the telecast will be streaming leading up to the big show.
Tickets to the Oscar viewing party are $20 for members and $25 for non-members. For more information, visit www.tropiccinema.com or call the Tropic at 305-396-4944. ¦
