Emagine Theaters Rolling Out Red Carpet for Academy Awards

The Emagine Palladium in downtown Birmingham is rolling out the red carpet and inviting the public to enjoy the 88th Academy Awards show on the big screen.

The doors open 5:30 p.m. Sunday to customers who purchase a $15 VIP ticket that provides light appetizers, unlimited popcorn and a drink ticket that’s good for unlimited fountain drinks or one alcoholic refreshment.

Free general admission seating starts at 6:30 p.m. In addition, guests can enter a free raffle drawing that will give away two movie passes.

Melissa Boudreau, vice president of sales and marketing for Emagine said this is the first year the company will be showing the awards at all its locations.

“It’s the biggest night of Hollywood and we want to share it with our guests,” she said Friday.

There will be large banners outside the theater for guests who want to get jazzed up and ‘pose for the paparazzi.’ Otherwise, it’s a chance to enjoy the awards ceremony with other movie buffs.

The Birmingham theater is located at 209 Hamilton Row. Public parking is free on Sundays. Come and enjoy this 88th Academy Awards Viewing Party like a movie star.
