Join us for a fun Oscar party on the evening of the 86th annual Academy Awards in the Yonge-Eglinton area.

Stay for as little or as long as you like, but come on out! There will be quizzes and lots of socializing.

This event will be co-hosted by Thumbs Up Theatre Toronto and Mad About Movies and More, Toronto's largest movie meetup group! Please sign up in only ONE group so an accurate attendee count can be ascertained.

Thumbs Up members will have their own tables at the party.


Join us for an evening of:

• movie trivia quizzes

• 70's culture quiz

• prize draws

• everyone gets a memento of the evening

• the Red Carpet walk, an all time favourite


6:30 p.m. - Socializing and table quizzes

7:30 p.m. - Red carpet walk

8 to 8:30 p.m. - Oscar presentations begins,

DRESS CODE: This year's theme is American Hustle, one of the nominees for best picture. If you want, you can dress up as an American Hustle character. Goodwill or Value Village should turn up lost treasures of the 70's and 80's that you could wear and you will not have to pay much to look the part.

Here's some inspiration:















WHEN: Sunday, March 2, 2014

TIME: Pre-show begins about 7 p.m. Meet Belinda at 6:30 p.m. to get good seats and to socialize

WHERE: The Duke of Kent, Upper Level, 2315 Yonge Street, Toronto (one block north of Eglinton subway station, on the east side of Yonge)

PRICE: $5 EXACT CASH. Members pay for their own food and drinks from the menu. Please support the venue by ordering a drink or food from the menu.

MEETUP FEE: No meetup fee



RSVP on this event page and show up for the party!

SEATING ARRANGEMENTS: Thumbs Up members will sit together at their own tables.



Meet Belinda at 6:30 p.m. upstairs ask for Belinda's Thumbs Up tables. She is very short and will be wearing a bright pink hat. Arrive on time to get a good seat and socialize.

    Now that I got off the waiting list and onto the confirmed list, our family celebration of my daughter's birthday's been changed at the last minute from dinner tomorrow night to very late "brunch" today - not sure if I'll still be able to make it in time to get a seat and socialize, so not quite sure whether to just cancel or not . . .

    Hello Academy Award fans! Tomorrow is the big day when we find out whether your favorite Oscar nominated film actor or actress takes home an Oscar. Please change your RSVP NOW if you can no longer make it to allow for someone from the waiting list to attend. Remember you do not have to dress up but it would be fun if you did and please bring EXACT change of $5. Thank you.
