James Bond films to be included in Oscars Outdoors season
Event - 08-05-12

Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences today unveiled the Academy’s new screening venue and announced its summer series, "Oscars Outdoors," which will kick off on Friday, June 15 and run through Saturday, August 18.

The open-air theater is part of the organization’s nearly 7.5 acre Academy Hollywood campus, which is also the site of the Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study, home to the Academy Film Archive, the Science and Technology Council and the Linwood Dunn Theater.

Concurrently, the Academy announced a slate of summer and fall 2012 public programs at its other theaters, including 50th anniversary celebrations of the James Bond franchise and the Oscar-winning epic "Lawrence of Arabia."

The Academy confirmed to MI6 today that the exact dates for the James Bond film screenings are still to be confirmed depending on special guests and host schedules. They are expected to be finalized later this summer.

The "Oscars Outdoors" series will devote every Friday night to classics and contemporary favorites aimed at adult audiences, and every Saturday night to family-friendly fare. The final Friday night presentation, on August 17, will be an "Audience Choice" selection, determined by fans who cast votes.

Tickets to each “Oscars Outdoors” screening are $5 for the public; free for children 10 years and younger; and $3 for Academy members and students with ID. Seating is unreserved. Tickets are available at www.oscars.org/outdoors. Gates will open at 6:30 p.m. Screenings begin at sunset.

Attendees are encouraged to bring low lawn chairs, blankets, warm clothing. Popular food trucks will be on site during each screening.

The Academy Hollywood campus is located 1341 Vine Street in Hollywood (between De Longpre Avenue and Fountain Avenue, and between Vine Street and Ivar Avenue). The campus is accessible via the Metro Red Line train and the 210 Metro Local bus. Free parking will be available.
