Are You Excited About This Year's Oscar Ceremony

Enter Our Oscar Ballot Poll for a Chance to Win a Private Screening at the JBFC Theater

Cast your vote, and you could win big on Oscar night! Once the results come in, one lucky winner will get a private screening in The Adam R. Rose & Peter R. McQuillan Theater for up to 31 people, including free popcorn and soda for your party.*  This awesome prize—any movie lover’s big screen dream—is valued at $1200.


2021 was an unpredictable and exciting year for movies, and we are thrilled that there were 89 Oscar nominations awarded to films we have shown (or will be showing) at JBFC! We welcomed filmmaker Pablo Larraín for a screening of his film Spencer, which garnered Kristen Stewart a nomination for Best Actress in a Leading Role; following the successful summer run of Summer of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised) at the JBFC Theater, we welcomed filmmaker Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, editor Joshua Pearson, and producer Joseph Patel for a one-night-only screening this winter, just before they received nominations for Best Documentary (Feature). In between, we screened nominees as wide-ranging as The Power of the Dog, West Side Story, Licorice Pizza, and Drive My Car. Cast your vote for your chance to win!
