There’s a limited number of VIP tickets available, so reserve yours now at Oscars2010.EventBrite.com!

There’s a red carpet entry for all attendees, with photographers stationed for “paparazzi” shots in front of the Lakewood. It’s not a “black-tie affair,” but you certainly won’t feel out of place if you decide to suit up.

Doors at 5:30 pm, with Red Carpet coverage from the Kodak Theatre on the big screen. The Oscar broadcast begins at 7:00 pm.

Oscar ballots will be handed out to all attending, with prizes awarded for correct guesses on each category. There’s also a Grand Prize for the total number of correct guesses.

The Lakewood Theater, a restored 1938 Art Deco Movie Palace in East Dallas is home to a world of movies, concerts, plays, corporate and private special events, film and music festivals and premieres, community gatherings, and more.

Come find out who will take home the big awards, and perhaps take home some goodies of your own!
