Hollywood Awards Night

Dates and Times

Tampa’s recently restored majestic movie palace is proud to announce the return of one of its most glamorous events, Hollywood Awards Night. Join Tampa Theatre on Sunday, March 4 as we celebrate Hollywood’s biggest night of the year with a Red Carpet Reception and VIP-worthy watch party for the live telecast of the 90th annual Academy Awards® on the big screen.

Now in its 19th year at Tampa Theatre, the Hollywood Awards Night Red Carpet Reception begins at 6:30pm on Franklin Street under the historic marquee. After a limo ride around the block, courtesy of long-time event sponsor Skyline Limousine, our superstar guests will walk the red carpet past adoring fans and paparazzi, rub shoulders with costumed characters representing Hollywood’s biggest bigwigs, pose for a picture with a living award “statue,” and chat with “Roan Jivers” about who they’re wearing.

Inside, there will be games, prizes, free popcorn and soda, hair and makeup touch-ups with professional stylists, the OSCAR® Red Carpet Live pre-show on the big screen, and a cash bar. ABC’s live coverage of the Academy Awards begins at 8:00 p.m.

NEW THIS YEAR! How do you upgrade an already VIP experience? By building out the stage over the seats to turn Tampa Theatre’s historic auditorium into the most exclusive party deck east of the Hollywood hills! This year’s event offers THREE levels of experience, depending on how much star power you want:
  • $20 BALCONY TICKET: All of the Red Carpet Reception activities on Franklin Street and admission to watch the 90th Academy Awards broadcast from the balcony, plus free popcorn, soda and water.

(If you are interested in reserved seating for your party of 6 or more, please contact Maggie Webber at maggie@tampatheatre.org)
Guests who stay until the Best Picture is announced at the end of the telecast will also enjoy doughnuts and coffee in the lobby.
