BROOKLYN - The countdown to the Oscars has begun, and one Brooklyn theater is stirring up its own movie-inspired cocktails for the awards.

Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg has been making creative concoctions to match the films it shows since 2011 when it became the first movie theater in New York State to serve alcohol.

In honor of the 85th Annual Academy Awards, the cinema will be catering to a sold-out crowd with drinks inspired by many of the nominated films.
