Three Dollar Bill Cinema and Gay City Health Project’s 7th Annual Academy Awards Party
Feb 26, 5–10, Seattle Cinerama, Downtown
There’s a red carpet in Cinerama, but the big draw here is watching the awards on the theater’s insanely big screen while nibbling hors d’oeuvres you didn’t have to make. Plus: They’re raffling off a trip to Cabo. VIP guests get early entry, champagne, and reserved seating. Hosted by and in support of Three Dollar Bill Cinema and the Gay City Health Project. $30–$65.
TheFilmSchool’s Oscar Night Celebration
Feb 26, 4–10, The Triple Door, Downtown
The Triple Door makes for a smart venue: There isn’t a bad view in the tiered dinner-theater, and they serve up Wild Ginger (mmm, satay). The event doubles as a FilmSchool auction and fundraiser, with proceeds supporting low-income students and fledgling filmmakers; dress is "Hollywood chic." $150, RSVP first come, first served.
Moe Bar Oscar Party (and Uber Giveaway)
Feb 26, 4-10, Moe Bar, Capitol Hill
New driving service Uber is dedicated to keeping things classy. Instead of just arriving at Moe Bar like some…pedestrian, enter to win a round trip in one of Uber’s luxury sedans, a bottle of champagne, and a seat in the least sticky booth in the bar. To win: Follow @MoeBarSeattle and @uber_sea on Twitter and tweet “I want to win the VIP Oscar treatment this Sunday at @MoeBarSeattle & get there in an @uber_sea. #UbertoMoeBar.” A winner will be picked at random Friday at 6.
Evening with the Stars
Feb 26, 4–10, Hotel 1000, Downtown
Hotel 1000’s swanky bash includes Ciroc cocktails, heavy appetizers by Boka Kitchen + Bar, live entertainment, and, of course, the swag. Prizes go to the best dressed and best celebrity lookalike, which we hope means a variety of Gary Oldman lookalikes. This party could use a dose of Sid Vicious. Proceeds support Reel Grrls. $75–$145.
