Short of being at the Dolby Theatre or one of the exclusive after parties, this may be the coolest way to watch the Academy Awards: At Downtown's revitalized, historic Million Dollar Theatre. Our pal and Los Angeles mag columnist Chris Nichols is hosting an Oscars screening party at the theater -- located adjacent to the Grand Central Market on Broadway -- on Sunday night. Proceeds benefit the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation. I can't think of a better way to celebrate movies and honor our film heritage at the same time.

Come alone, bring a friend, assemble your own entourage and experience awards night in a grand new way – with a live audience in a legendary theatre.
Participate in games, win prizes, laugh, cry, cheer in triumph, groan in defeat – experience it all in Grauman’s first Los Angeles movie palace – the fantastic Million Dollar!
Attendees are invited to dress in formal attire, vintage clothing or costumes keyed to your favorite contender. Prizes will be awarded.
