Philadelphia Film Society Throws A Spectacular, Fashionable Oscars Viewing Party
Sunday night the Philadelphia Film Society young friends hosted their 3rd Annual Oscar Bash, and by far the biggest, most successful one moving it from the quaint Roxy Theater to the nearly 500 seat Prince Theater. In recent years Philly’s been lacking a quality, affordable viewing party since The Ritz – Carlton stopped doing them a few years back, and as much as they were great, this was much better. The AV worked perfect, there was plenty of food, a great mix of people and the screen was movie theater quality, and the audience was enraptured by the show, so there wasn’t too much chatting except for the collective sigh of disgust when Sly lost.
The Philadelphia Film Society Young Friends is a community of film enthusiasts and advocates that participate in social, educational, and philanthropic events to cultivate the next generation of film appreciation, film and festival-goers, and filmmakers in Philadelphia.
You should join them, there are a lot of great benefits, free screenings, lectures and much more. It’s really a great organization to belong to as well as a great place to meet other young friends, and young at heart movie lovers.

People turn out the fashion on the red carpet, I saw everything from black tie, to evening gown and casual, which fit right in too.
