Okay we’re really at Carolina Cinemas up in the Cinema Lounge.
Today (2/24) Carolina Cinemas is putting on another wonderful Oscar party. 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.
While the party upstairs doesn’t start until 3:15, we plan to be there early and maybe catch a non-Oscar movie before the festivities.
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 here all day – especially since we missed Beasts of the Southern Wild while it was in theaters.
