Film Awards Party

Celebrate the most acclaimed films of the year in style at the annual Film Awards Party. 

The Grand brings the glamour of the Oscars ceremony to downtown Tacoma with paparazzi 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 92nd Academy Awards with your community on the big screen at the Theater on the Square. Details to come for 2020.

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 festive attire or participate in the costume contest by dressing as their favorite character from a film—it can be a recent film or one of your all-time favorite characters from any movie! 

Costume Contest participants will be called to the stage during breaks in the ceremony. Favorites will be selected by audience applause with the help of our handy "Applause-O-Meter." 

Prizes will be awarded to several audience favorites.
