Detailed Event Overview
Since early times performing arts theatres and cinemas have showcased their headlining stars in bright lights outside of their buildings on marquee signs. It has become a traditional phenomenon to dream about seeing your name in the bright lights of the marquee. Every guest of our event is meant to “Feel Like a Star”! For this reason we felt it was fitting to call our event Marquee!
Marquee celebrates Vancouver’s film and fashion industry by bringing together a network of film professionals, performers, independent artists, designers, media and members of the community which are passionate about supporting the performing arts industry while celebrating the annual Academy Awards® in Hollywood. The event will feature an inclusive paparazzi red carpet reception with Arc 2 Intertainment filming every moment, followed by a social cocktail hour with food catered by Eh! Restaurant and will proceed to a live screening of the annual Academy Awards® on jumbo sized screens.
Marquee has a deep importance behind its purpose beyond an evening of glamour and celebration. Marquee will be raising money for the BC Chapter of the Starlight™ Children’s Foundation to bring the gift of smiles and entertainment to kids in our local community who are facing the challenges of a serious illness. At times their treatments may be life threatening and often children have to endure many frightening days away from friends and family while on their road to recovery. From hospital-based Fun Centres with Ninteno Wii to special events and trips for the whole family, Starlight™ has established programs that help seriously ill children and their families cope with their pain, fear and isolation with education, entertainment and family activities. Marquee will be raising funds to help contribute to Starlight’s™ missions by bringing the gift of entertainment to children experiencing extended stays in our local hospitals for treatment.
An indulgence of glamour, a taste of refined entertainment and a touch of class are just some of the descriptive phrases used to storyboard the evening’s festivities. The moment you pull up to Marquee we have ensured you “Feel like A Star”. Whether you are arriving by limousine or arriving in your swank ride, you will feel well taken care of the moment you step out of the vehicle. A red carpet hostess will welcome you to Marquee as you make your way down past the paparazzi filled red carpet to take some quick poses in your glamorous attire for local media and socialite personalities.
From the red carpet a door staff member will open the door for you and welcome you with a complimentary drink as you enter the event. Red and gold ambient lighting, rich flowing fabrics, Hip/Jazz/Chill music by Myles Bigelow Trio, and enjoyable canapes created by Chef Ashley Page of Eh! Restaurant will be served by the TRAZ Girls Model Team. These are just some of the detailed elements your senses will enjoy as you make your way into the room of beautifully dressed like minded people.
Lights, cameras, Oscars®! the screening of the 83 Annual Academy Awards® will start right at 5pm. We have designed the event so you are entertained throughout the evening. Even when the live broadcast takes a break, presentations, recognitions and prizes will keep the energy up while we wait to welcome back the Academy Awards®. Our cash bars will remain open during the length of the screening so you can enjoy your beverages at your leisure pace.
At the conclusion of the screening we will be open for about an hour for you to mix, mingle, and network with friends and film magnets. Don’t forget your Swag bag on the way out!
From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave we want to make sure our staff are on hand for you to have an exciting, memorable evening while supporting a very important cause.
We hope you take a night out with us to celebrate Art & Entertainment & Giving at Marquee!
