Viewing the Oscars at the local theater
With rumors that the world-wide Oscar television audiences are diminishing there will always be movie fans who long to watch it from start to its drawn out conclusion. More so, these devout die-hards would much rather be there, in person, if possible.
One feeling of almost being present in Hollywood is to watch this fabulous ceremony on the BIG screen hosted by an historic theater. This is something this writer has enjoyed several times, for free, at the glorious Bagdad Theatre in Portland, Oregon.
Many classic movie houses, now used for live functions, have a satellite dish for the annual (free) Super Bowl insanity like the Admiral Theatre in Bremerton, Washington.
Surely, (“and my name isn’t Shirley”) by screening the live Oscars to movie goers, this would re-kindle the flame more so to attend more movies still currently playing at their local cinema. A win-win for everyone!
