Feb 21 2019, 4:53 am

The Oscars are almost here! But you don’t have cable.

Considering that you saw most of this year’s nominees in theatres or via a streaming service that gave your laptop a virus, and watching live television at home is almost unheard of these days, there are a number of spots that are screening the Academy Awards in Toronto.

Here’s where you can enjoy the show in TO.


Meet at Marbl for an Oscars viewing party to remember! Celebrate the show with games, awards and hors d’ouerves, surrounded by good friends. It’ll feel so luxe and lavish, you’ll be able to pretend you’re really there.

Where: 455 King Street West
When: Sunday, February 24
Reservations: Email or visit the website

And if you’re into it, but you’re not so into it that you want to be completely engrossed in the silver screen all night, Petty Cash’s got you. This spot will be screening the show without sound, so you won’t be out of the loop at the office tomorrow, but you can also maintain a completely unrelated convo with your pals.

Where: Petty Cash – 487 Adelaide Street West
When: Sunday, February 24
