I was wondering if AMC theaters would pull out the Annual Best Picture Showcase this year. I wasn't sure due to the fact that there are a total of ten best picture nominees this year instead of five. I'm happy to say that they are! I was invited to attend this event last year and had a blast. I definitely would love to go this year as well.
AMC will be showing all ten movies nominated for best picture at a two day event that will be split over two Saturdays: February 27th and March 6th, 2010.
Along with purchasing a ticket you will get a free large popcorn and unlimited refills. All the popcorn you would ever want to eat. Here are the ticket options:
Standard Ticketing Options:
- Two-Day Pass - Online: $60
- Two-Day Pass - Box Office: $50
- One-Day Pass (February 27 or March 6) - Online and Box Office: $30
MovieWatcher Ticketing Options:
- Two-Day Pass - Box Office: $40
- One-Day Pass (February 27 or March 6) - Online and Box Office: $25
If your not already a part of AMC's MovieWatcher club now is the time to join up. That would be $40 for 10 movie and unlimited popcorn!
You can find a PDF containing a listing of the 100+ participating theaters on AMC.com. AMC is also asking moviegoers to vote on which other four movies will play alongside Avatar (presented in 3D) on February 27th. Tickets will go on sale on Friday, February 12th.
*AVATAR will be shown in 3D except in the following theatres: Framingham Premium 1 (Boston), Maple Ridge 8 (Buffalo), Yorktown Premium 1 (Chicago), Ridge Park Square 8 (Cleveland), Dutch Square 14 (Columbia, SC), Fiesta Square 16 (Fayetteville, AR) and Shirlington 7 (Washington, D.C.). AMC will review poll results for the February 27 Best Picture Showcase selections and will have the right to modify the event lineup, film order and timing. AMC MovieWatcher members will be able to receive a discounted ticket only at the theatre’s box office. All guests will be able to pick up their actual pass at their respective participating theatre on the days of Best Picture Showcase, Saturday, Feb. 27 or Saturday, March 6.
