Oscar coverage


The party not to miss this weekend is the Central Illinois Film Commission’s Red Carpet Party at Capital City Bar and Grill during Oscar night, Feb. 24. Hollywood comes to Springfield. Walk the red carpet like a star, watch the Oscars unfold before you on the big screen, and meet cast and crew from the film Lincoln. There will also be a display of props and uniforms from the nominated film, including the saddle Daniel Day-Lewis rode. Dress in your black-tie best, your street clothes or as your favorite movie character. The best movie character will win a prize. All partygoers can get photographed on the red carpet by Mike Unland. He’ll have a green screen to make it appear as if you really were at the west coast festivities. Tickets for the evening can be purchased at the door or by phone.
