Join us One Last Time
This Oscar Weekend, TheOneRIng.net is going There and Back Again as we celebrate all six of Peter Jackson's Middle-earth films. From The Hobbit to The Lord of the Rings, our last party will be one to remember!
IS THIS AN ‘OFFICIAL’ OSCAR OR WARNER BROTHERS PARTY?
No. This is not an official Oscar or Warner Brothers party. “The One Last Party” came about when a group of dedicated TheOneRing.net fans in Los Angeles decided to hold an event to celebrate three things: The amazing success of our four previous Oscar(R) parties (‘One Party to Rule Them All,’ ‘Two Towers: One Party,’ ‘The Return of the One Party’, ‘The One Expected Party’), and their favorite website TheOneRing.net. This event has been completely organized by the fans through a successful crowd-funding campaign and truly lives up to TheOneRing.net’s motto “Forged by and For Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien.”
HOW DO I BUY TICKETS?
Tickets are sold out for the complete experience. However, a few ‘Entish Entertainment’ tickets, for the performance only, may still be available. [Click here]
WILL THE STARS BE THERE?
We must be perfectly clear and say that no celebrity, cast or crew member have guaranteed their presence at our party. However, we hear through the grapevine, that because our party is the only Hobbit celebration of the Oscar® weekend, the possibility is high for some VIP appearances.
IF A CELEBRITY SHOWS UP, CAN WE ASK FOR AUTOGRAPHS?
The One Last Party is meant to be just that, a party. Please do not ask any celebrities or VIPs for their autograph during the event. After all, if any celebrities do show up, they are there to relax and enjoy themselves, just like you and me. However, photography will be allowed, so feel free to bring your cameras to the event. Any attendee caught asking for autographs will be immediately removed from the party by security.
CAN I BRING A VIDEO CAMERA?
Yes, you can bring any type of recording device you prefer!
SO WHAT EXACTLY DOES “BLACK TIE AND POINTY EARS OPTIONAL” MEAN?
This is a Hollywood Oscar Party, and we would like for the fans attending to really get into the spirit by dressing up. Black Tie optional means that if you have a Tux, or an Evening Gown, wear it. We have arranged with Friar Tux Shop to save you $40 off a tux rental! (Details) (TheOneRing.net staff will be dressed to the max!) If you do not have that, go with the next best thing. This does not mean you should dress down at all. Security will not allow you into the party if you do not meet the dress code. You are also welcome to attend in costume, with limitations. Please review our strict costuming guidelines in our Costuming/Attire area. [Click Here]
I’M COMING IN FROM OUT OF TOWN. WHERE CAN I STAY?
This year’s venue is conveniently located adjacent to three major hotels. Please see our ‘Hotels and Lodging’ area for hotel details. [Click Here]
HOW BIG IS THE VENUE?
The American Legion, post 43 can hold 1200 people comfortably. Our expectation is to sell approximately 800 tickets to cover the cost of this party. If demand is higher, that number may increase slightly, but not much. There will be plenty of room to move around. And just for your information, The Legion is a famous concert hall with several dance halls, gaming rooms and places to roam.
WHERE DO WE PARK?
We will have limited discounted parking available to guests at a location near the venue. Details will be posted soon.
The American Legion Hall, Post 43 is right in the heart of Hollywood. Point your favorite mapping device to American Legion, 2035 North Highland Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90068. We will have limited discounted parking available to guests at a location near the venue. Details will be posted soon.
THIS PLACE IS BIG, IS THERE A SPECIAL ENTRANCE?
Yes, the private entrance to our party will be on Highland Ave, directly at the front gates of the American Legion. Look for ornate gates directly accessible from the sidewalk. There will also be a large One Last Party sign marking the entrance.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Besides yourself, please bring at least one of the following types of photo ID: Valid Government ID, Driver’s License, Official State ID or Passport. These will be the ONLY forms of identification that will be accepted for admission into the party. If you do not bring one of these IDs to the party, you will not be allowed to enter.
WILL THERE BE A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER?
Yes! There will be a professional photograper set up for couples and friends to take photographs. Everyone will get one free photo and have the ability to purchase additional photos.
Since we firmly believe that Tolkien fans span generations, and our fandom exemplifies a unique level of maturity, we have reduced the required age for this part to 14. Please note however, that all attendees under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. No exceptions. As alcohol will be served, wristbands will be given to guests 21 and older. There will be no discounted or reduce price tickets available for those under 21.
WILL FOOD AND DRINK BE AVAILABLE? IS IT FREE?
If you purchased a ticket that includes dinner, yes. Those attendees will also get two drink tickets. Attendees with the ‘Entish Entertainment’ ticket, for the performance only, will not have food available to them.

DO YOU NEED VOLUNTEER HELP?
We will not need volunteer help for this year’s event. However, that being said, keep checking the frontpage of TheOneRing.net and this Oscar section for any possible changes to that, as a need might arise. You never know when we’ll need folks to help out unexpectedly!
