UltraStar Multi-tainment Center at Ak-Chin Circle Prepares for Hollywood's Biggest Night "Viewing Party"

The UltraStar Multi-tainment Center at Ak-Chin Circle is excited to announce their 3rd Annual Viewing Party for Hollywood's Biggest Night starting at 5pm on Sunday, February 28, 2016. 

Guests are invited to come as they are or dress to impress and walk the red carpet. The awards show will be presented on the big 50-foot screen in theater 12 and admission is free.  Starting at 5pm, Arizona time, the broadcast begins with red carpet arrivals in Hollywood while the awards ceremony begins at 6:30pm, Arizona time.  The fun continues during the commercial breaks, when UltraStar raffles off movie merchandise such as T-shirts, hats, water bottles, movie posters and sweatshirts, making the fun last the entire length of the broadcast. Raffle tickets are available before the show for only $1 each. 
Attendees can choose to upgrade to a VIP experience for only $20 and enjoy an appetizer buffet reception in the lobby, a glass of champagne (for those 21+), and a raffle ticket to be entered to win movie swag plus a nominee ballot for the opportunity to win movie tickets for a year!  Full bar will also be available for those 21+.  VIP tickets are available now at the box office for purchase. 

Adam Saks, general manager stated, "I believe the greatest impact comes from seeing the presentation in a theater. You truly get drawn in, last year people felt as if they were actually at the awards some even unwittingly clapped after a speech or two. You forget you're not actually at the Oscars, but you feel like you're a part of it!"
