New York City is selling tickets to the Academy Awards ceremony. The catch? The city won't be sending you to L.A. The tickets are for a live viewing of the Oscars at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center, complete with a cocktail reception.
The tickets are going for $150 dollars and $225, and the proceeds will go to the cultural foundation of NYC and Company, the city's marketing and tourism department.
The event will be the culmination of a weeklong celebration of the Oscars, including a marathon screening of Oscar-winning films at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
