Hollywood Awards Night 2021

Everybody is a Winner with your choice of a Virtual VIP Pre-Show or an In-Person OSCARS® Watch Party!

Nobody is exactly sure yet what the 93rd Academy Awards ceremony is going to look like, but Tampa Theatre *is* sure of one thing: there’s no way we’re going to let one of our favorite nights of the year go by without a party! And since not everyone is comfortable walking the red carpet quite yet, the majestic movie palace will be offering both a virtual VIP Pre-Show with live and silent auctions and a catered dinner option and their 22nd annual OSCARS® watch party, live and in-person in the historic auditorium.

IF YOU PREFER THE PARTY TO COME TO YOU: Starting at 6:00pm, Tampa Theatre will live-stream a VIP Pre-Show from its historic stage. The hour-long program will feature games, movie trivia, special guest appearances from Hollywood Awards Night alumni, a virtual silent auction, and LIVE bidding on premium auction items.  The live-stream will be FREE to watch at www.tampatheatre.org/redcarpet2021

To add to your at-home celebration, you can pick up a Party-at-Home pack at the Theatre for $79, plus applicable fees, ($69 for TT Members) that includes our world-famous popcorn, sparkling wine and signature cocktails for two, a pair of custom flutes to toast your favorite nominees, balloons and confetti to set the scene, your own miniature award statue, game cards to use during the live-stream pre-show, and other red-carpet goodies. Boxes can be picked up between 11:00am-1:00pm April 24 or 25.


IF YOU PREFER TO COME TO THE PARTY: Starting at 7:15pm, Tampa Theatre will open its doors for our 22nd annual OSCARS® watch party! The exclusive, limited-capacity event will kick off with live games and fun prizes onstage before the 93rd Academy Awards ceremony starts on the big screen.

Patrons will be treated to a glass of sparkling wine upon arrival. Complimentary popcorn, soda and candy, and a cash bar are available all evening long through the Theatre’s new NOBLE Concessions App (CLICK HERE for details). And in what has become a Hollywood Awards Night tradition, those who stay until the Best Picture statue is awarded will also enjoy coffee and doughnuts for the ride home.

Tickets are $79 per person, plus applicable fees, ($69 for TT Members) and seating is limited. Guests are encouraged to show off their star status with a movie-themed costume, or let the glamour of Hollywood inspire a red carpet-worthy outfit.

Temperature checks, masks and distancing will be required.
