An evening for stargazing

Posted February 22, 2007

Don't feel like sitting on your couch at home while watching movie stars get the royal treatment this Sunday? Join the Martha's Vineyard Film Society and walk down the Island's own red carpet at the Mansion House in Vineyard Haven. Enjoy all the hoopla of the Academy Awards with friends and fellow film lovers. Snacks, spirited beverages, and desserts will fill you up while you watch the oldest, best-known, and most prestigious film awards.

Feel free to dress up like Penelope Cruz or Leonardo DiCaprio, or dress Island-style in sweatpants or jeans. Either way, take a walk down the red carpet before taking in the 79th Oscar telecast, shown on a big-screen television.

Bossiet American and Offshore Ale will donate food and beverages, and there will be a prizes awarded for the winner of the "Guest Oscar" pool. The evening will benefit the film society.

Oscar Party, 7:30 pm to 12:30 am. Sunday, Feb. 25, Mansion House, Vineyard Haven. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the front desk up until the event begins, but seating is limited.
