'A Star Is Born' looks set to be knocked off the top of the box office charts as Edenderry rolls into town with a host of new movies. 

It's a case of Blundell Wood to Hollywood; Tom Hanks to Tom Dowling as two sports clubs from the North Offaly town come together for 'A Night At The Oscarz.'

Edenderry GAA and Derry Rovers soccer club have joined forces to stage a huge fundraiser in the shape of Tinseltown's most glamorous night of the year. 

Recreating famous scenes from films such as Silence of the Lambs, The Snapper, Jerry Maguire and Forrest Gump, members and friends of both clubs will screen the results of weeks of preparation, filming and....incredible acting, obviously. 

The Oscarz event sees the re-shot clips screened on the night, Sunday, October 28, at The Johnstown Estate Hotel between Johnstownbridge and Enfield. Awards are then handed out in varying categories, much like the world-famous Oscars. 

The Oscarz fundraiser has been experiencing strong ticket sales but to check availability and secure your seat for the biggest night of the year, contact Martina Brady 0861705103, George Morrissey 0877509916 or John Mcnamee 0857220076.

Doors open on the night at 7.15pm.
