In celebration of the Best Documentary (Feature Length) Oscar(R) nomination for Tupac: Resurrection, Amaru Entertainment will be hosting an exclusive star-studded viewing party at Atlanta's famed Compound. A private group of by-invitation-only attendees are expected at the event, including a host of celebrities from the worlds of music, film and sports, among others.

The screening party will correspond with the broadcast of the Academy Awards, which will be simulcast live from Los Angeles' Kodak Theatre at 8 PM EST/5PM PST. Compound's own unique 40,000 square foot, high class art deco environment will provide for a variety of viewing experiences for those in attendance.

The majority of the invitees will watch the ceremonies from the club's huge "Ride" room, a vast lavish space entirely surrounded by television monitors. The screens will be divided between those tuned to the live Oscar(R) telecast and other showing the Tupac: Resurrection documentary. There will also be a special lush VIP Room, where approximately 25 of the special guests will watch the ceremony telecast on a huge plasma screen.

The Oscar(R) viewing party at Compound is being held not only in recognition of Tupac: Resurrection's prestigious award nomination, but also to raise awareness of the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation (TASF), founded by the late rapper's mother, Afeni Shakur (who also served as executive producer of the documentary with Lauren Lazin).

The party will also serve as a chance for both individuals and corporations to contribute to TASF, which is funding -- among other projects -- the forthcoming Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts, a combination museum, theater and performing arts school for underprivileged youths, in honor and memory of the late rap icon. The Center, to be located in Stone Mountain, GA., is scheduled to open Phase 1 of its operation in June, 2005.
