Tampa Theatre will present one of its most glamorous events, Hollywood Awards Night, on Saturday, March 27. Tickets are on sale now.
Jill Witecki with Tampa Theatre said, “Tampa’s majestic movie palace will be the hottest ticket in town on Sunday, March 27 as we celebrate Hollywood’s biggest night of the year with a Red Carpet Reception and big-screen watch party for the live telecast of the 94th annual Academy Awards®.”
Now in its 23rd year, the Hollywood Awards Night Red Carpet Reception begins at 6:30 p.m. on Franklin St. under the historic marquee. After a limo ride around the block, courtesy of longtime event sponsor Skyline Limousine, superstar guests will walk the red carpet past adoring fans and paparazzi, rub shoulders with costumed characters representing Hollywood’s biggest bigwigs and chat with ‘Roan Jivers’ about who or what they are wearing.
Inside the Tampa Theatre, there will be games, prizes, free popcorn and soda, hair and makeup touch-ups with professional stylists from Paul Mitchell The School, the OSCAR® Red Carpet Live pre-show on the big screen and a cash bar. ABC’s live coverage of the Academy Awards begins at 8 p.m.
