Fundraiser (Edmonton): Oscar Night at the Varscona

Varscona Theatre Edmonton

The nominations are out and it’s time to start thinking about where you want to spend your Oscar night. And for the fourth year the Varscona Theatre is hosting Edmonton’s most exciting Oscar extravaganza!

It’s the fun filled night of glamour that has become an annual Edmonton institution! Come join the party at the Varscona Theatre on Sunday, February 26 to celebrate the awarding of the 84th Academy Awards in a one of a kind Oscar event.

See Hollywood’s night of ego-fuelled merriment and embarrassing excess presented the way it was always meant to be: Up on the big silver screen.

Hosted by Edmonton’s greatest Oscar enthusiasts: Tom Edwards and Matt Alden. They will make it their job to cover the really dull bits with comedy, entertainment and an avalanche of prizes.

Fabulous fashions! Awkward acceptance speeches! Inexplicable film montages! All the entertainment and schadenfreude that only Oscar night can deliver!
