It’s not too late.
Somehow, between seeing Jonah Hex three times, Grown Ups twice and sneaking your Jack Russel terrier into Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (in 3-D, of course), you managed to miss a few of the nominees vying for the coveted best picture Academy Award to be handed out on Sunday, February 27.
Well, luckily, AMC Theatres is doing their annual Best Picture Showcase again (the 5th year now), presenting all ten contenders – five on Saturday, February 19 and five on Saturday, February 26 – so you can catch up on the ones missed, revisit the ones you did see, and give it another go trying to figure out what’s happening with Leonardo “You need to go deeper” Dicaprio and that dream extraction business.
In the Philadelphia area, AMC’s Loews Cherry Hill, Hamilton, Neshaminy and Tilghman Square theaters are participating in the Best Picture Showcase event. For schedule and ticket info, click here. Check out Toy Story 3, 127 Hours, The Kids Are All Right, True Grit and The Fighter on the first Saturday. See Winter’s Bone, Black Swan, Inception, The Social Network and The King’s Speech on the second. And then, fully informed and full of vivid images from all of the best picture candidates, watch the awards telecast on Sunday, February 27, and try to make sense out of it. (127 Hours, best picture? Not going to happen).
