As the nominees for the 85th Annual Academy Awards® await the announcement of who will win Oscars®, the nonprofit Monterey County Film Commission is putting the finishing touches on plans for its local celebration, “Hollywood’s Big Night” party, at Monterey’s Cannery Row Brewing Company (95 Prescott Ave.) to be held Sunday, Feb. 24, from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Party tickets are $10 general bar admission. Dress is comfortable Hollywood glam.
We have booked a table for 8, so space is limited.
The event will gather local movie buffs to have photo ops with a celebrity-style logo wall on the red carpet, watch the live telecast of the Academy Awards® presentation on multiple screens, win prizes for guessing Oscar winners, bid on locally donated silent auction items, and take in the added fun of KSBW-TV’s news anchor Erin Clark as master of ceremonies, plus DJ Hanif Wondir throughout the evening and for end-of-show dancing.
And, as the Academy Awards® show goes on, attendees are invited to go to KSBW.com, follow the Oscar® link, and join the conversation about the celebrity arrivals, gowns and winners, or post their own photos from the local event.
Sponsors are Central Coast ABC, Cannery Row Brewing Company, Coastal Luxury Management, and the Monterey County Film Commission. The event is a benefit for the nonprofit Monterey County Film Commission. The Monterey County Business Council is a supporting partner of the event.
To reserve a place at the party, go to www.canneryrowbrewingcompany.com beginning Feb. 13.

“This will be THE place to see and be seen, and have a great time celebrating movies and sharing the Academy Awards experience with friends,” said Brian Conway, event chairperson and board director of the Monterey County Film Commission. “Attendees will be talking movies, interacting online, and helping to support the film commission as we work to support our local economy through television and film production.”
