The Pittsburgh Film Office's Oscar bash will have a new backdrop come 2010 - the August Wilson Center for African American Culture, Downtown.
The annual event, called "Lights! Glamour! Action!" as usual, will feature a red carpet and live telecast of the Academy Awards.
Organizers promise fine food, an expanded silent auction and live entertainment. For tickets or other information, go to http://www.pghfilm.org or call 412-261-2744.
Tickets range from $250 to $125 to $75 (requires the purchase of at least six tickets) with the most expensive ticket including a VIP champagne reception and valet parking.
Pittsburgh could have a few horses in the Oscar race, with director Rob Marshall's "Nine" sure to garner some nominations and "The Road" deserving of honors for its stars Viggo Mortensen and Kodi Smit-McPhee.
