The Fox Theatre is the Place to Be for Oscar Night

If your living room’s sorry lack of a red carpet is a detriment to your Oscar experience, the Fox Theatre has you covered for Sunday’s festivities. For the fourth year in a row, the Fox is hosting the Oscar Experience for Tucsonans seeking a bit of glamour on film’s big night.

Besides being the only screening of the show officially sanctioned by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Tucson, the Fox pitted against even the most impressive of home theaters is hardly a contest. The restored theater goes back to the Golden Age of Hollywood, and the interior is stunning enough ("The ceiling! The mosaics! The vintage marquee!" Do I sound like a red carpet commentator yet?) to draw comparisons as the Kodak Theatre of the Southwest. Pardon, the “Dolby Theatre”...still trying to get used to that.
