Celebrate the most acclaimed films of the year in style at annual Film Awards Party.
The Grand brings the glamour of the Oscars ceremony to downtown Tacoma with paparazzi greeting guests on the red carpet, professional photos taken with award trophies, audience forecast voting, giveaways, and hosted entertainment by local personalities. Although we will be watching the Oscars on the big screen, this event is not sponsored by or affiliated with The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Watch a live cast of the 89th Academy Awards with your community on the big screen at the Theatre on the Square -- Sunday, February 26, 2017.
Featuring a no-host bar, raffle prizes, and silent auction. All event proceeds will support operations and programs at The Grand.
Suggested Attire & Costume contest
Guests are encouraged to wear formal attire or participate in the costume contest by dressing as their favorite character from film (costumes related to films released in 2016 -- especially the year's nominated films).
All Costume Contest participants will be called to the stage in waves during breaks in the ceremony. Several crowd favorites will be selected by audience applause with the help of our handy "Applause-O-Meter" (inspired by That Thing You Do).
Prizes will be awarded to several audience favorites:
Grand Prize: $200 gift certificate to the Lobster Shop
Runner Up: two $25 gift certificates to Hop Jacks
Enter to win free movies for a year at The Grand when you complete a ballot predicting Oscar winners for 2017. The person who correctly guesses the most Oscar winners will receive our Golden Ticket which provides free movies for a year for one person to the pass-holder.
