In its fourth year, this highly anticipated annual event will take place at The Fox, Tucson’s beautifully restored 1930’s movie palace, on Sunday, February 24th. This year’s theme is “Bond, James Bond”. Guests are encouraged to dress in “Red Carpet or Bond-themed attire” and enjoy the glitz and glam spirit of the evening as they stroll down the “red carpet” along with local celebrities in the Parade of Stars. Once inside the Speakeasy reception area, guests can enjoy Hollywood-themed refreshments, a raffle for Bond- related adventure packages; a memorabilia silent auction, and live musical entertainment, all with the Bond Girls in attendance. Beginning at 6pm, the 85th Academy Awards broadcast will be presented, commercial free, on the Fox Tucson Theatre big screen.

Entertainer Seth MacFarlane will  Host the Awards Broadcasts and local  MixFM radio personality Mrs. Grant and KGUN 9 Good Morning Tucson anchor, Greg Gurule will host the Oscar Experience® Tucson.
