It's the night where the biggest awards in movies are handed out in Hollywood, but in Saskatoon you can watch the broadcast in a theatre seat.

The 88th annual edition of the Academy Awards are being streamed live at the Roxy Theatre on 20th Street W starting at 7 p.m. CST.

The high definition broadcast on the big screen will also include co-hosting duties by Brendan Flaherty, a local political satirist, who will hand out movie-related prizes during commercial breaks.

To celebrate the awards show, the theatre will also offer their full concession and a taste of wine.

All ages are welcome to come to the free broadcast.
