AMC bringing Best Picture nominees back to theaters

So you've seen the list of ten Best Picture nominees, and you've only seen half of them? Well, you're in luck, because AMC is bringing back at least half of them to theaters before the Oscars, so no Netflix queues or piracy needed!

They currently have a poll up where you can pick out of the ten which four movies you want them to show alongside AVATAR, because obviously, that’s still going to be in theaters at this point. It seems to me that stuff like THE BLIND SIDE and UP IN THE AIR should still be in theaters as well (or at least your local dollar theater), but who knows.

I’d definitely vote for bringing HURT LOCKER to the big screen, as the movie made something like $12M in domestic release, despite being an Oscar frontrunner. AN EDUCATION and A SERIOUS MAN also could probably use a theater go-round, but I can’t even believe SERIOUS is nominated in the first place. I still have yet to check out EDUCATION.

So go here to place your vote as to what you want brought back. Sadly you can’t write in MOON.

I saw AN EDUCATION last night and I gotta say Carey Mulligan was really fantastic in that film. Great film.

Whats wrong with A Serious Man? Its one of those that deserved to be nominated, unlike The Blind Side.

No Love for Serious Man? Really?

Must say I am awfully surprised to see that you didn't like A Serious Man... I found it to be one of the Coen's most outstanding works, on par with Lebowski, Fargo and Fink...

Some of my local dollar theaters are doing this as well. I need to catch A SERIOUS MAN

I did this last year and it was great. I would love to see Up, District 9, Inglourious Basterds, and Hurt Locker again.

Cool

I missed out on a lot of these films during their first run, though I eventually caught The Hurt Locker on Netflix. And Moon was a serious snub, especially for Best Actor.

Great Times

Always a good time when the Best Picture Showcase comes up. I was wondering how they'd do it this year with 10 nominees, and, while all of that movie time over the course of two days could be a bit tiresome, it should be a good time regardless.

I think its a bit cheaper this year, too.

It's not cheaper - in fact, since it's two days, it's $30 for each day. But that's fine - you can still vote for what plays what day.
