Academy Awards Party - Redmond

  • Feb 24, 2013 · 3:00 PM

We will be viewing the 85th Academy Awards ceremony in the living room af on Assistant Organizer's home in Redmond. This locale is not very accessible by public buses but would work if one does not mind walking about mile from the Overlake Transit Center.

The ceremony begins at 5:00 and will last until 8:00 or so, but participants are welcome to show up starting at 3:30 to discuss films and to watch pre-show programming. There will be handouts so you can try to predict the winners and compare your guesses with others.  At last year's party, a person from the Meetup group had the most accurate predictions and won two movie tickets!

We will be watching the ceremony on a 60-inch flat screen. This is a potluck, and all participants are required to bring both food and beverage (no alcohol) contributions. The food should be more of a finger food, and should not require extensive on site preparation (a stove, oven, and microwave oven are available). I will provide filtered water, Diet Coke in cans, coffee, tea, and popcorn. A lengthier description of the potluck, as well as other details of this event such as directions and parking, will be emailed about one week before the event to the folks who have made reservations.

This event, unlike most meetups, takes place on private property, and here the host would prefer that you have attended a previous meetup with this group.  To participate in this event you must answer the question that asks for your first and last name (actual name), city of residence, phone number, and email address. Failure to provide this information will result in your reservation being cancelled.  There are a few friends of the host coming already which is why space in the living room is rather limited.  If all spaces are full, please contact the host so we can disuses floor seating.  The option to add +1 guest for this meetup is disabled -- that is how limited space is.

Here is a great time to cheer on your favorites in the company of follow film lovers!

      If you want another party, I could host monthly ad hoc movie nights (not set up on this site.) People are welcome to private message me so we could set that up. :-)

    You should know that Regal cinemas are having an Oscar best pic marathon. You can see all 9 noms over 2 days for 50.00. Or a one day pass for 30.00. A block of 5 plays one day and a block of 4 the next. Repeats Runs from the 15th to the 21st. Found out about it when I was at Parkway Plaza 12 in Tukwila last night.

      AMC has done the Oscars marathon thing for the past few years too. Here's a link to their deal this year (at Pacific Place, Alderwood, and Kent): http://www.amctheatre...­

      Regal is doing theirs at Meridian and in Tukwila, but they don't have a web page for it.

    Hello everybody! I'm new in Seattle (from Los Angeles) Recently got a job in Bellevue. I say this because I just joined the "Seattle Cinema Club". I would love to get acquainted with any of you attending this event. I understand the dynamics of being "unknown" in somebody's house. I'm actually planning to go to the movies tomorrow or Friday (in case anybody is interested) Please let me know what to do in regards of information (phone, e-mail, address etc) By the favorite movie of the year is ARGO :D

      Hi Lee - We are hoping within the next ten years to have an addition put on the house, but it will not be done by Sunday! I have three friends who need the couch (can't sit on the floor) the two other seats on the other couch and four other friends coming! I wish we had room for more folks. I'm really sorry that we won't exchange addresses now, but can meet in person at another event. Best wishes, Jennifer
