Hollywood Awards Night 2022


After splitting the popular event into a virtual pre-party and scaled-back in-person gathering in response to the pandemic last spring, Tampa Theatre is proud to announce the full-scale return of one of its most glamorous events, Hollywood Awards Night, presented by Amalie Oil Co. Tampa’s Majestic Movie Palace will be the hottest ticket in town on Sunday, March 27 as we celebrate Hollywood’s biggest night of the year with a Red Carpet Reception and big-screen watch party for the live telecast of the 94th annual Academy Awards®.

Now in its 23rd year at Tampa Theatre, the Hollywood Awards Night Red Carpet Reception begins at 6:30pm on Franklin Street under the historic marquee. After a limo ride around the block, courtesy of long-time event sponsor Skyline Limousine, our superstar guests will walk the red carpet past adoring fans and paparazzi, rub shoulders with costumed characters representing Hollywood’s biggest bigwigs, and chat with “Roan Jivers” about who they’re wearing.

Inside, there will be games, prizes, free popcorn and soda, hair and makeup touch-ups with professional stylists from Paul Mitchell The School, the OSCAR® Red Carpet Live pre-show on the big screen, and a cash bar. ABC’s live coverage of the Academy Awards begins at 8:00pm

Hollywood Awards Night 2022 offers THREE levels of watch-party experience:

  • $25 BALCONY TICKET: All of the Red Carpet Reception activities on Franklin Street and general admission to watch the 94th Academy Awards® broadcast from the balcony, plus free popcorn, soda and water. A 20% discount is available for groups of 8 or more.
