As a member of the Press for the Academy, I wanted to share this with the group.

Please also mark your calendars for Sunday, February 24th for a very special Oscar Watch Party for Ciné Arts Cleveland!   

We're working on planning a film screening to be followed by dinner and an Oscar Watch Party.  Just wanted to give you a heads-up.
