Prizes will be awarded for the best French Revolution-style dressed man and woman.

The boutique cinema in Arrowtown hosts its 11th annual evening of Hollywood glamour and glitz, beginning with a red carpet reception with refreshments, courtesy of Millbrook Resort, at 6.30pm. The curtains part for the 2013 Academy Awards ceremony at 7pm.

Ms Relph said yesterday the night would also feature a movie trivia quiz and a ''special mystery guest''.

''Last year we had a prime minister, this year it might be a president,'' she said.

Tickets are $10 for Dorothy Brown's Cinema members, or $20 for non-members.
