WATERVILLE — The Maine Film Center’s 2023 Oscar Party is set for Sunday, March 12, at 93 Main St.

Attendees can walk the red carpet and have catered refreshments at a gala reception prior to a live broadcast of the 95th Academy Awards, celebrating the best films of 2022.

“We’ve shown seven out 10 Best Picture nominees this year, and while we have our own predictions about winners, we’re curious what our community thinks,” said Julia Dunlavey, assistant executive director of the Maine Film Center, in a news release from Mary Ellms, communications coordinator. “Will it be ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ (with a recent sold-out encore screening at MFC) or ‘The Banshees of Inisherin’ (the highest-grossing film at MFC this year)? We’ll be watching with bated breath all night.”

Prior to the Oscars, cinema patrons can fill out ballots with their predicted winners. The person with the most correct predictions will win one dozen free movie passes to the Maine Film Center, as well as free popcorn.

The gala reception will begin at 7:30 p.m., while the Oscar ceremonies broadcast will begin at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the reception cost $15 for the general public and are free for members of Waterville Creates; admission to the broadcast is free.
