We’re rolling out the red carpet for a livestream Academy Awards viewing party at AFS Cinema. Come prepared for costume contests, voting ballots, themed drinks, and more. You can see the full listing of the 2019 Academy Award nominations here.

Can’t make our screening? You can still participate in the evening! Tell us which films and performances you loved in 2018 but weren’t nominated.


All guests will receive two slices of Home Slice pizza and complimentary Big Swig sparkling water. Additional food and drinks can be purchased at the bar.


Come in costumes inspired by your favorite nominated films from 2018. We’ll let the audience pick their favourite, who will take home a great prize.
