This weekend, The Frida Cinema offers two free viewing party events!

First, on Saturday February 23rd at 2pm, please join us for this year’s Film Independent Spirit Awards.

Voted on by members of Film Independent, a fellow non-profit organization founded with the mission to champion creative independence in visual storytelling and support a community of artists who embody diversity, innovation, and uniqueness of vision, this year’s televised awards will be hosted by actress Aubrey Plaza, and handed out by a who’s-who of film talents who have made an impact in independent cinema!

This event is FREE, and first come first served!

Then on Sunday February 24th, join us for Hollywood’s biggest night—The Oscars—presented live on the big screen!

Our doors will open at 4pm, when the celebrities start to arrive at Hollywood’s Dolby Theater.  Then the awards start at 5pm! 

So many great films—but no “sure things!” Roma has been leading the pack during awards season, but will The Academy recognize a Netflix release?  The highest-rated film of among the Best Picture nominees continues to be Black Panther—but does it stand a chance to be the Academy’s first comic-book-adaptation Best Picture winner?  Will the lowest-rated film of the bunch, Bohemian Rhapsody, surprise with a Best Picture win?  Will Spike Lee finally win an Oscar!?  Join us Sunday and find out!

Event is FREE, and first come first served! 

And as we’ve done every year, we’ll be giving every attendee a ballot at the beginning of the night, then tallying along the way to see how sharp you awards prognostication skills are!  The winner will get a FREE Premiere Membership to The Frida, good for free movies, popcorn, and soft drinks through the next 12 months!

We hope you can join us for one (or both!) of these free community events!
