BRATTLEBORO -- The see-and-be-seen event of the season is almost here!

This Sunday, don your tux, sequins or own brand of "formal wear" to watch the world’s most celebrated awards ceremony live on the Latchis Theatre’s big screen.

Coming to you from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Calif., the Latchis Theatre’s "See the Glamour, Be the Glamour" benefit will roll out the red carpet for the 85th airing of Hollywood’s biggest annual event. (Due to trademark restrictions, we can’t call this by its rightful name, but let’s just say, "We’d like to thank the Academy...")

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with live interviews and grand entrances from the stars on E! Awards ceremony begins at 8. Suggested donation of $20 will benefit Latchis Arts, marking its 75th anniversary and ongoing restoration project. Arrive in style and get ready for your close-up with red carpet interviewers Desha Peacock, Suzanne Kingsbury and Alfred Hughes Jr., as the paparazzi flash away.

Place your votes for who will take home the awards for "Best Actor," "Best Actress" and "Best Picture," as you sip cocktails at our cash bar, enjoy munchies and rub elbows with Brattleboro’s finest. (Votes are $1 each or six for $5, with winners up for prizes.) A beautiful set of zodiac crystal cordial glasses also will be on offer in a raffle to benefit Latchis Arts.

Dress your best, as there will be an award for that at end of the night.
