Oscar Experience at the Fox Theatre

I attended the Oscar Experience at the Fox Theatre in downtown Tucson last night.

It's a fancy affair with everyone dressing up, fancy food, and the Oscars showing on the big screen in the theater.  They handed out goodie bags which included a $10 coupon towards the purchase of a tattoo.  I imagine the big names in Hollywood that went to the Oscars in Los Angeles got the same kind of thing in their goodie bags, too.

The weather was clear but the wind was howling downtown and it made the three block walk from where I parked near the Ronstadt Transit Center to the Fox pretty miserable.  I was wearing a suit and the wind cut right through.

A few photos of the occasion:
