The Goodrich Capital 8 Theater in Jefferson City is throwing an Oscar watch party on Sunday. Admission is free, and will feature trivia contests and prize giveaways during the commercial breaks of the live broadcast, starting at 6 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the theater lobby will be transformed into a red carpet with staff wearing black-tie apparel.
Manager Bob Wilkins said 50 people showed up at the party last year and many were dressed up for the occasion. There were door prizes and awards for the oldest and youngest members in the audience.
Seating will be limited to one theater; the other seven theaters will be in operation and concessions will be sold. For more information, call the Goodrich Capital 8 Theater at 573-893-3811.
