Now in its 16th year, the special Oscar party at Tampa Theatre has become an annual tradition for Tampa film fans. One of the few "official" spots for Hollywood Awards Night held at theaters around the country, the Tampa party begins with guests glammed up for the red carpet walk at 6:30 p.m. Sunday with fashion commentary by "Roan Jivers." Inside the lobby, guests can sample appetizers and peruse silent auction items before a large-screen viewing of the Academy Awards telecast at 8 p.m. Keep an eye out for Tampa Bay Times critic Sean Daly (possibly in an ill-fitting tuxedo), who will be covering the event for the newspaper and ABC Action News. Tickets are $30, $25 Tampa Theatre members, $20 students with ID. Tampa Theatre, 711 Franklin St., Tampa. (813) 274-8982.
