Oscars @ Drafthouse

  • Feb 24, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

It's that time of year again, Oscar season!

Come join us at the Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse for the biggest movie event of the year.

This "And the winner is..." event, put on by the DC Film Society, is the 21st FUN-raiser held in support of Filmfest DC, the Film Society’s parent organization, the Washington DC International Film Festival.

The entire Oscar experience including pre-show is part of this event, the society does have commentators (local film critics), everyone gets a very nice door prize, raffles, and they do trivia from which you can win other prizes. There will also be a silent auction at the event (some auction items include signed film posters and DVDs, ticket specials, etc.).

We have the bonus of being able to socialize during the commercials. So join us for a fun evening.

Cost: $21.00 Click here to order tickets.*

Time: Doors open at 6:30PM. The pre-show starts at 7:00PM. The award show starts at 8:00PM.

Click here for the Arlington Drafthouse information page for this event.

I will be in the lobby at 6:00PM and wait until 6:30PM (doors open) as I want to get the group a good spot. If any one can come early to help save seats that would be much appreciated (as I don't think we'll be able to save them very long).

*Tickets for DC Film Society members are $16. In addition, tickets will be sold at the door (starting at 6PM the day of the event), but I strongly recommend buying your ticket early and online to ensure that you get a ticket.

Note, I am limiting the amount of people on this meetup as it will sell out. If the limit is reached and someone has bought there ticket just let me know and I will manually add you to the attending list. RSVP's will be closed on the Thursday before the ceremony (Feb. 21) or when tickets are sold out for this event.

Arlington Drafthouse

The Drafthouse offers a full restaurant menu and bar, including beer, wine, and mixed drinks. Every seat has access to a table or counter inside the theater.

    By the way, the winners of Best Documentary (short) Inocente..Sean Fine and Andrea Nix Fine are local film makers. Sean was wearing RG III socks ,as he tweeted later. I thought I recognized their names from the Alexandria Film Festival

    Thank you everyone for coming out! I think it was a fun night even though the show went a bit long. They need to cut down on the commercials. I think the Drafthouse was a great place to see the Oscars. :-)
