Academy Awards Viewing Party at Lounge 54
The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – Feb. 26, 2016

The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – Feb. 26, 2016 – Santa Ana Star Casino, New Mexico’s Best Bet, will celebrate the 88th Academy Awards by hosting an Oscar viewing party. The event will be held inside Lounge 54 on Sunday, Feb. 28, and will feature the full awards show, themed drink specials, a giveaway for a 48” smart HDTV and more.    

“Bypassing the pricey admissions and stuffiness of some Oscar parties, Lounge 54’s Academy Awards viewing party will celebrate the year’s biggest and best films in a casual, fun environment,” said Santa Ana Star Casino Marketing Operations Manager Jeff Jacot. “We will show the Academy Awards on HDTVs throughout the lounge so our guests can watch the show and make predictions from the comfort of their own tables and enjoy special Oscar-themed drinks.” 

Although the official awards ceremony begins at 6:30 p.m., guests can arrive at Lounge 54 as early as 5 p.m. to watch the Academy Awards preshow and red carpet action. Throughout the event, Lounge 54 will offer an exclusive menu of specialty champagne cocktails, and fresh popcorn will be available. 

Guests will also have the chance to win a 48” smart HDTV during the Academy Awards viewing party. Upon arrival, each person will receive a drawing ticket that they will cast towards their pick for “Best Picture.” At the end of the viewing party, a winner will be drawn from the group that correctly predicts the “Best Picture” winner. 

Guests can attend the Academy Awards viewing party free of charge. Guests must be 21 years or older to attend. For more information, please call (505) 867-0000 or visit www.lounge54atthestar.com.
