Rolex & The AcademYThe 2018 Greenroom

The Greenroom is the backstage gathering place on the film world’s biggest night. For the third consecutive year, Rolex creates a space of its own on Oscar Night®. The 2018 Greenroom opens up to an entirely new world, one that increasingly reflects Rolex and its Swiss heritage. In a similar fashion to how films create new universes, Rolex transports its Greenroom guests to its own world in a contemporary chalet high up in the Swiss mountains. Located backstage at the Dolby Theatre, where the Oscars® ceremony has been held since 2002, guests in the Greenroom will be surrounded by the Rolex atmosphere, in complete contrast to the outside metropolis of Los Angeles.
