For all the movie buffs out there, we've got your weekend plans covered.
This Sunday marks the 91st Academy Awards celebrating Hollywood's greatest films of the past year. A few stand-out hits include the brilliantly absurd "The Favourite," the timeless story of friendship "The Green Book" and the movie we've been hearing about all year, "A Star is Born."
We've rounded up a couple ways you can celebrate the Oscars in style and catch all the films for a great deal — minus a ticket to Hollywood.
Where to Party Like the Stars
The Wolfe Street Foundation's 20th annual Red Carpet Gala. Taking place for the first time on Saturday night, rather than during Oscars on Sunday, the gala is giving you the best of both worlds so you can still enjoy watching the awards from your couch in sweatpants on Sunday.
As always, the gala will be filled with fine dining, dancing, live music from the Zac Dunlap Band, auctions and, of course, dazzling red carpet arrivals. Red Carpet Gala kicks off with a great cloud of paparazzi at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 23, at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church.
The event raises money for the Wolfe Street Foundation's mission to bring awareness and education about alcoholism and substance abuse to the community. For more info about the event, read our post here.
Where to Party with Your Fur Friends
Bark Bar is hosting an Oscars party of its own and your furry best friend is more than welcome. The Red Carpet Oscars Pawty will feature all the pre-awards red carpet coverage your heart desires — including a Bark Bar red carpet for the pups. The costume contest will begin at 6 p.m. followed by an Oscars watch party. Humans must be 21 and older and pups must be at least 4 months old. Don't forget to submit your dog's shot records before the party. For more info, head to the Facebook event post.

Where to Catch Up on the Best Picture Noms
If you've put off watching, say, a shockingly out-of-shape Christian Bale as Dick Cheney or any of the other Best Picture nominees, you're still in luck. The Cinemark theater on Colonel Glenn (aka The Rave) is still selling tickets for its Oscar Movie Week pass for just $35. (Yes, really.) The theater will be playing all of the Best Picture noms this weekend in preparation for the Oscars on Sunday. Purchase your pass here.
The Regal Breckenridge theater is also doing a 2019 Regal Best Picture Film Festival leading up to the big day. Between Friday, February 15 and Sunday, February 24, moviegoers can see all of the Best Picture titles for $35 — and Regal Crown Club members with a festival pass will receive a $5 small popcorn and soft drink combo at each festival visit. Purchase your pass here.
