Sure, you could watch the Oscars at home, but wouldn't it be more fun to get dolled up and make a night out of it? The Denver Film Society is hosting one of just 42 official Academy Awards parties in the country—and the only Colorado event sanctioned by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Walk the red carpet, bid on unique items at a silent auction, and enjoy cocktails, entertainment, and an opulent seated dinner. Funds raised will benefit DFS activites, programs, and educational events. Fun fact: Attendees will receive the same programs as the ones being handed out at the Hollywood ceremony. Sun 5 p.m.
