To ensure public safety, support security strategies and facilitate the production of this year’s Oscars®, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the City of Los Angeles have finalized street closure plans around the Dolby Theatre™ at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood, announced oscars.org.

To accommodate the construction of press risers, fan bleachers and pre-show stages along the Oscars red carpet, Hollywood Boulevard will be closed between Highland Avenue and Orange Drive beginning at 10 p.m. on Sunday, February 21, and remain closed until 6 a.m. on Tuesday, March 1.

MTA subway trains will bypass the Hollywood & Highland station after the last regularly scheduled train on Saturday, February 27, until 6 a.m. Monday, February 29. Service at the station will resume with the first scheduled train after 6 a.m.

Between Sunday, February 21, and Oscar Sunday, February 28, additional streets and sidewalks will be closed for varying periods.

Details of the closures and maps of affected areas are available from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the Sixth and the Thirteenth District City Council field offices and on the Academy’s website at www.oscars.org/closures.

The Oscars, hosted by Chris Rock, will air live Oscar® Sunday, February 28, on ABC.

Through their work, these artists have shown us the unique, transformative power of cinema,” said Oscars® producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin. We are delighted they will be joining us on the Oscars stage this year.”

To give the Oscars® their striking appearance, all surfaces have to be perfect. Gold plating is only one micron thick and would not cover even the smallest indent. To accomplish a perfect surface, the castings are plated first with copper, then nickel, and polished to a high luster. Photo: Dorith Mous / ©A.M.P.A.S.Previously announced
