Or a Descendants Hawaiian shirt?). Also, be ready to flaunt your film knowledge for Oscar® trivia! Prizes will be awarded to all trivia and costume winners.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m., show starts at 7:00 p.m.

Outdoor Screening Series “Movies to Geaux” Fundraising Campaign
The Film Society has launched a fundraising campaign to help purchase screening equipment for an outdoor film series called “Movies to Geaux.” While we have secured some funds through a grant from the Louisiana Cultural Economy, we still need to raise $4500 to purchase an outdoor screen, projector, and sound equipment.
Please check out our Kickstarter video and consider donating. It’s an all-or-nothing campaign, meaning that if we don’t raise $4500 on Kickstarter by our deadline (March 23), we won’t receive any of the money we raised. Every dollar counts! Click here to donate now!
