I LOVE movies, therefore I love the Oscars (in spite of their misguided calls year after year). My wife enjoys movies but LOVES the Oscars. We used to have a mini-Oscar party every year but last year we went to The Carolina.
Last year, Carolina Cinemas put on a wonderful party in their cinema lounge. They had FREE showings all day leading up to the Academy Awards. A good time was had by all. I even won an Asheville Film Society membership for being the Best Dressed Male (something I have never previously been accused of). My wife was better dressed – thankfully for me, the category was gender split.
This year Carolina Cinemas is putting on another wonderful Oscar party on Sunday, February 24th. This event is FREE. There will be an Oscar ballot contest to win FREE movie passes.
Carolina Cinemas has a hot menu (pizza, salad, paninis, snacks) as well as the normal movie snacks. Soda refills (any size) are FREE. Popcorn refills (any size) are FREE if you have an Asheville Film Society membership. They also have local beer on tap, bottled beer, and wine by the glass or bottle.
3:15 – Beasts of the Southern Wild (Nominated for Best Picture, Director, and Actress)
5:00 – Last year’s Best Picture winner, The Artist
7:00 – The Red Carpet followed by the 85th Annual Academy Awards. Oscar trivia during the commercials to win FREE movie posters.
Jenny and I will be there all day – especially since we missed Beasts of the Southern Wild while it was in theaters.
