Up The Awards Benefit Bash 2022

March 27 only

Beer. Snacks. Ballots & Attitude. Up the Awards is back, and it’s commercial-free!

Oscar® Awards Contest: Win Free Movies and Popcorn at the Roxie for a Year!

The annual crowd-pleasing, bargain basement gathering to ogle Hollywood’s bloviated crowing, cushioned by a program of bizarrely mesmerizing shorts, enthralling music videos & hilarious film clips (curated by Stev Sechovec & his henchman Travis White) that replaces commercials.

Get settled before the Red Carpet March of Shame and cast your ballot to see if you can most accurately divine the twisted logic of The Academy. Your $16 ticket is a donation that directly supports the operation of our independent, nonprofit, historic theater. And let’s make things interesting: the person whose ballot most reflects the decisions of the all-knowing Academy (including all the good, the bad, and the ugly) will win a free Patron Membership to The Roxie Theater. Ballots must be turned in before the the first award is announced. Good luck!

Your $16 donation goes directly to the operations of our independent, nonprofit, historic theater. This event is not sponsored by or affiliated with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Many thanks to ABC 7 for their support.

Red Carpet @ 3:30 PM • “Showtime” @ 5:00 PM


Please do drop in and amply avail yourself of the tasty Middle-Eastern treats awaiting you at this year’s Awards Sponsor & provider of the platters of pleasure you will be scarfing down, Truly Mediterranean.  Tell Omar: “The Roxie sent you!”
