Every year as we approach the Academy Awards, there are always people who complain about the best picture nominees; how the films are too obscure and that no one actually watched them. With the exception of Juno (the obvious crowd favorite), that may once again be the case this year. While films like There Will be Blood, No Country for Old Men, Michael Clayton and Atonement are talked about in great length amongst critics and the like, none of these films made a ton of money at the box office. So, you may know the names, but you might not have seen the films. Well, if that happens to be the case, AMC has got you covered.
That's right, for one day and one day only, AMC Theatres will screen all five best picture nominees for those who want to head into the Oscars with an all-knowing state of mind. The screenings will take place on February 23, the day before the Oscar ceremony, and all you have to do is cough up $30 and find an AMC Theatre near you that's participating in this special event. In case you're wondering what that thirty bucks gets you, be aware that, aside from admission to all five films, you also get a free large popcorn (estimated at $1,375) and free refills all day long. Did you hear that people -- free friggin' refills! The day shall begin at 11am with a screening of Michael Clayton and conclude at 9pm with No Country for Old Men.
For all the details (including which theatres are participating), head on over to AMC's official site.
