    LOS ANGELES, Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
