Just like last year, AMC theaters across the country are devoting a day to this year's Oscar nominees for Best Picture. On Saturday Feb. 21 (which is the day before the Oscars), for 30 bucks you can watch each of the nominated films back-to-back and receive a large popcorn with unlimited refills. To find out which theaters are participating, click here. This is the kind of event that makes me swoon. Add in a cocktail service and some cheesecake and I think that might be heaven itself. Though I guess it's also a really long day of sitting and staring at stuff.
The schedule below is the same nationwide, and the times are local:
Milk — 10:30 a.m.
The Reader — 1:05 p.m.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button — 3:45 p.m.
Slumdog Millionaire — 7:15 p.m.
Frost/Nixon — 9:45 p.m.
Do you think that's the best way to order that lineup? Could — or will — you make it through a full day of movies like this?
