HOLLYWOOD COMES TO MONTCO
The Best Places to Watch the Oscars

More than 2,700 miles separate Montgomery County and Hollywood, but on Academy Awards night, it's as if we're next-door neighbors. Follow the klieg lights and the paparazzi to one of our local movie palaces and get a front-row seat for all the action.

THE COLONIAL THEATRE
227 Bridge Street
Phoenixville, PA 19460 

Colonial Theatre

The historic Colonial Theatre reserves Oscar night for members, but it's possible to get under the velvet rope by joining this worthwhile cinema's ranks (even last minute) and attending. The evening of February 28 includes a big-screen viewing of the ceremony itself, live from Hollywood, as well as trivia questions during the commercials. The dress code for the 8:30 p.m. gala is purposefully all-encompassing, from black tie to pajamas (a tribute to the length of the broadcast) to characters from 2015's nominees (space suit from The Martian, anyone?).

AMBLER THEATER
108 East Butler Avenue
Ambler, PA 19002

Ambler Theater

It's a full-fledged Hollywood extravaganza in Ambler on February 28. Once dark descends, Butler Avenue will blaze with light, welcoming guests to the red carpet. From there, the prelims kick in: photo booth, for those glitzy-glam shots; raffles, for a shot at some serious swag; endless popcorn and soft drinks; and fill-in ballots, to officially log your favorites. The show unfolds on three HD screens, and ticket buyers can even reserve their favorite seats beforehand.

HIWAY THEATER
212 Old York Road
Jenkintown, PA 19046

Hiway Theater

Get those tuxes and gowns ready for a night of glamor. The Hiway Theater's night-of-nights begins when the doors swing open at 7:30 p.m., welcoming Jenkintown's most fervent film fans. The theater will stream all those surprise moments, big winners, dark-horse upsets and awkward acceptance speeches in their crystal-clear digital glory. Light desserts are courtesy of Velvet Sky Bakery.
