When the red carpet is rolled out in February for the 81st annual Academy Awards ceremony, Danville residents will have a chance to get dressed up and head to the Village Theatre, 233 Front St., for their own Oscar Night. Danville Arts Commission Chairwoman Celeste Evans said they will be holding their annual Oscar party at the theater Feb. 22. Residents will be able to come, relax in the theater seating and watch the entire broadcast on a 20-foot screen.
Evans said the doors will open at 4 p.m. and the telecast begins at 5 p.m. Food will be served, guests will be given the opportunity to test their knowledge in games of movie trivia, and prizes will be awarded throughout the evening.
Tickets are $25 each, with funds raised going to help with the cost of the annual International Children's Film Festival held in the spring. Tickets can be ordered online at www.caindiefest.com.
