‘An Oscar Celebration’ will include film clips at the Granada Theatre this weekend

'An Oscar Celebration' with Santa Barbara Symphony to take the new stage at Granada Theatre

SANTA BARBARA, Calif.- The Santa Barbara Symphony will soon perform Oscar favorites along with film clips on a new stage.

The Granada Theatre stage, which was damaged by sprinklers in January, has been replaced.

The show entitled 'An Oscar Celebration' follows the Academy Awards that awarded more than half a dozen stars and artisans who walked the red carpet at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival at the nearby Arlington Theatre last month.

The Granada's Oscar celebration also coincides with a big birthday.

The theatre turns 100 on April 9.

Santa Barbara Symphony President and CEO Kathryn Martin will be welcoming guest conductor Contantine Kitsopoulos.

The celebration will include portions of Oscar-winning scores from "Gone With The Wind," "The Wizard of Oz," "Ben Hur" and more.

Award-winning documentarian Leslie Zemeckis will serve as host.

"Having this on the heals of the Oscars is a lot of fun, there is a lot of buzz in Santa Barbara, there was about the Oscars with the film festival leading up to it, and just for Santa Barbara history and current legacy of film," said Martin.

Movie music lovers can see the 100-minute show on Saturday, March 16 at 7:30 p.m. or Sunday, March 17 at 3 p.m.

Martin said tickets are selling fast.

The ticket office is located at 1330 State Street in Santa Barbara.
