Our preview event of this year’s 89th Annual Academy Awards a few weeks ago, benefiting the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, went so well we have decided to create another one. Join me and Gary on February 22 at Studio Movie Grill/Royal Lane, Dallas location for an evening of wine and film, toasting the 2017 Oscars, benefiting The Dallas Film Society, tickets available here.
Just a few days before the biggest movie award show of the year, this is the perfect time to get the inside scoop from one who knows the topic best, film critic Gary Cogill. For 24 years Gary served as the film critic for WFAA-TV in Dallas, reviewing over 10,000 films, and conducting more than 20,000 interviews.
Gary will walk through the top nominations for this year’s 89th Annual Academy Awards. Sommelier Hayley Hamilton Cogill will join the discussion, pairing a selection of wines with key award contenders and categories. Light appetizers and movie favorites from Studio Movie Grill’s menu will be included with the selections.
The evening will feature a select number of incredible live auction items, including the same wines every celebrity will be drinking at this year’s “Oscars,” and All-Access Star Passes for the 2017 Dallas International Film Festival, with proceeds benefiting the Dallas Film Society.
Every attendee will receive a ticket to Studio Movie Grill to see a nominated film or new release on a future date. Tickets for this special night, including the discussion, wine, snacks and an additional movie ticket for a later date are only $40, available through the Studio Movie Grill website, here.
