Approximately 250 people attended the party Sunday night.
No matter what your opinions on this year’s Academy Awards, one thing’s for sure: the show’s best enjoyed on the big screen, surrounded by 250 others. You get to really enjoy the funny moments, because everyone laughs. Groups in other parts of the crowd cheer on favorites, and you can join in, too.

The theater is open for public guided tours on the first Sunday of the month.
Always wondered what lurked backstage? Wondering whether or not Houdini performed at The Colonial Theatre? Curious about any hauntings? Check out this photo gallery. The photos were taken during the first public tour of The Colonial Theatre. Each first Sunday, the theater will open its doors and welcome people in for a peek backstage and more. Correction: It was incorrectly reported that a person died by being crushed by the organ lift. This was not the case, although there was a death in the theater in the 1990s.
