Red River Theatres is restoring our signature Red Carpet fundraiser event on Oscar Night – Sunday, February 26th, returning to two great locations – O Steaks and Seafood and Red River Theatres! This year, we will celebrate the newly renovated “New Hampshire’s Main Street”, as well as a new decade for Red River Theatres. Our tenth birthday is October 19th, 2017 and we want to start 2017 off with panache, bringing the town together in our finest!

Starting at O Steaks and Seafood at 5:30 PM, guests will walk the Red Carpet and be interviewed about their fashionable attire by Doris Ballard of Concord TV. Tickets include delicious appetizers, live music by the The Tall Granite Big Band, and dancing at O. When guests come down the stairs to Red River Theatres, the Academy Awards ceremony will be up on all three of our big screens. A “Treat Suite” will be located in our renovated Simchik Cinema, full of delectable desserts and open all night long!

Attendees are encouraged to dress up, with the diversity and elegance of Hollywood as their inspiration, and enjoy a marathon night of good food, wine and beer, trivia, posing for photos and many chances to win prizes. Film lovers will come together to celebrate the nation’s highest film honors, in a local, friendly, and fun environment. All proceeds from the evening go to support community and educational programming at Red River Theatres.

Chef and owner Scott Ouellette of O Steaks and Seafood at the Lake Opechee Inn, opened O Steaks and Seafood, his second location, in the elegant Capitol Commons building above Red River Theatres in July of 2009. Since then, O Steaks and Seafood has become a renowned restaurant and a favorite of Red River Theatres patrons and supporters.  Red River Theatres is excited to partner with O Steaks and Seafood once again for this year’s Red Carpet event! The evening’s menu will feature O classics, as well as new hors d’oeuvres and signature drinks inspired by the glamour of Hollywood.

Our Treat Suite will feature appetizers and desserts from restaurants and caterers throughout our community, including from the Granite Restaurant & Bar, The Common Man, Annie’s Cafe & Catering, The Works Bakery & Cafe, and many more! Donation opportunities are still available – please consider reaching out to Katie A. Mosher, Events and Marketing Manager for more details!

We will have live music by The Tall Granite Big Band!

Directed by saxophonist Joey Placenti, the 18-member The Tall Granite Big Band debuted in Concord in 2014 and has quickly gained notice for its unique Swing, Latin, and blues sound stemming from its stylistic roots on the Texas Gulf Coast.

The band is somewhat unique in including four area clergy and is featured at popular monthly dances at Pitman’s Freight Room. It has twice accompanied the eminent jazz trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis and is especially delighted to have the opportunity to perform for From Hollywood to Main Street: Concord’s Own Red Carpet!
