Yeah. The Oscars. Yawn. They happen every year with all of the pomp and circumstance befitting a royal coronation, but with less substance and intrigue. However, as with any annual entertainment awards ceremony (particularly ones where the winners are chosen by white men), the fun comes with a) taking bets, and b) attending viewing parties. Join the Roxie as it opens its theater for a screening of the 85th Academy Awards, beginning with the red carpet show at 4pm and going all night long til the bitter end. Since it's at the Roxie, you can bet there'll be some sarcasm and snarkiness amidst the audience — but chances are you'll also be treated to a genuine tear-jerker of an awards speech or two.

Roxie Theater says…

Which just-barely-interesting movie will be crowned Prom Queen this year? Will it be the singing one, the slavery one, the sad one, or the secret mission one? Come on over to the Roxie for our annual celebration, where the Little Guy strikes back by yelling stuff at the big screen. That guy from that cartoon is hosting it? Ugh. we'll provide FREE hors-d'oeuvres, but it's a long show, so come well provisioned with food & drink. Also – bring high heels and a bad attitude. Doors open at 3:45 (15 minutes before the Red Carpet show begins). The charge is $15 at the door ($12 in advance.) Oh, on a sincere note – isn't it BONKERS that Michael Haneke is going to be there?!
