The Oscars are full of nail-biting competition this year, and what better way to enjoy “and The Oscar goes to” than with your fellow New York cinephiles? Join the skint at Littlefield in Gowanus for our third annual FREE screening party of the 89th Academy Awards.

Jimmy Kimmel is hosting this year, which means we can expect at least one joke attempt about Brooklyn hipsters. And if 20-time nominee Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech was any indication, we just know she’ll have something equally powerful to say if she wins tonight. Add this to the fact that nominations this year include more non-white artists in front of and behind the scenes than ever before, and this is shaping up to be a pretty solid year for the awards show.

So, what does “free” buy you? The best-looking crowd in town, duh. Feel free to dress up for the red carpet entrance! Plus, since we’re showing the awards on a big screen, we decided to get fancy: think champagne (get a free glass with RSVP here), themed drink specials, voting ballots to cast your guesses for the wins (most correct wins a prize), a photo booth, and as much fresh-popped popcorn as your movie-loving heart desires.

The official awards ceremony starts at 8:30pm, but doors will open at 6:45pm so you can get there early enough to catch a seat and the red carpet pre-show — or be asked about your outfit by our very own red carpet interviewers.

So come and build up a bubbly buzz, snap some Instagram-worthy red carpet selfies, try your hand at predicting the winners, and rub shoulders with other members of NYC’s very own self-appointed Academy.

RSVP does not guarantee entry. This event is mixed seated/standing. Arrive early to secure a spot. Doors open at 6:45pm.
