Vote for your favorite film at the Little Art Theatre’s Academy Awards viewing party

Are you willing to finally revel in your affinity for great film-making while in the company of others? The Little Art Theatre, an independent movie theater in Yellow Springs, is hosting its own screening of the 92nd Academy Awards. 

>> Academy Awards 2020: What time, what channel, who is nominated for an Oscar?

The awards ceremony is taking place on Sunday, Feb. 9 beginning at 8 p.m.

Award ballots will be available at the event for those who would like to vote for their favorites in each category. A cash prize will be awarded to the person who can correctly guess the most winners. 

>> American Factory’ on the road to Oscar gold

The most important reason for this viewing party, however, is to cheer on fellow Yellow Springs residents Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar for their film, “American Factory,” that is nominated for Best Documentary Feature. The documentary, released on Netflix in August of 2019, details the creation of a Chinese-owned automotive glass factory, Fuyao Glass America, located in the building that once housed General Motors in Moraine. 

Tickets to the event are free, but you must register at eventbrite.com to reserve your space at the viewing party.

>> Black History Month: Celebrating creativity and the arts

The event begins at 7:30 p.m. All donations and proceeds from the viewing party benefit the Little Art Theatre.
