What better way is there to watch the Academy Awards than at one of the oldest theatres in Los Angeles?

Put on your best outfit and head to the Grauman’'s Million Dollar Theatre this Sunday.

The theatre is hosting its first-ever Oscars viewing party on its big screen.

The party will be emceed by Chris Nichols, Blogger and Associate Editor of the Los Angeles Magazine. Fashion designer and guest sponsor Michael Costello has confirmed his attendance.

The Million Dollar Theatre opened downtown in 1918.

Watching the Oscars in this vintage theatre will give you the feeling like you're stepping back in time.

The history of this venue includes closures during the Great Depression and during the late 90s.

The theatre has gone through many ownership changes. It's been used for films, concerts, vaudeville shows and even a church.

Major renovation has been done to return the Million Dollar Theatre to its historical glamor.

What would an Oscars viewing party be without the red carpet? You'll make your grand entrance to theatre on a red carpet and have a chance to mix and mingle with other attendees in the foyer ahead of the Oscars telecast. The red carpet portion of the show as well as the main telecast will both be shown in the theatre.

You definitely want to dress to impress. Whether you put on something from your closet or you pick up a period costume reminiscent of old Hollywood styles, prizes will be given for the best dressed.

The theatre is surrounded by cafes and restaurants within walking distance. So you can either come early or stay late to add a downtown dining experience to your night.

This fun Oscars gathering also serves as a charitable event.

The proceeds from this event will go to the Los Angeles Historic Theatre Foundation which serves to restore and maintain classic theatres in Los Angeles including Grauman's Million Dollar Theater.
