AMC Best Picture Showcase 2010 Oscar Nominees
AMC Theaters is once again holding its Best Picture Showcase which will take place during 2 Saturdays, February 27th and March 6th, each day showing 5 of the 10 movies nominated for this year’s Best Picture Academy Award. Let’s not forget the perks, AMC will offer you a free large popcorn and unlimited refills, now that’s what I call a good deal. Tickets for the event will go on sale on Friday, February 12, 2010.
In case you’re wondering, the 10 movies nominated this year are: “Avatar,” “The Blind Side,” “District 9,” “An Education,” “The Hurt Locker,” “Inglourious Basterds,” “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire,” “A Serious Man,” “Up,” “Up in the Air.” Since I have seen 8 out of the 10 movies, I won’t be going to the showcase, but I’ll probably find time to watch the last two that I haven’t seen.
