LEAWOOD, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Whether you missed the movies nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards, or you need a refresh before the big night, AMC Theatres (NYSE:AMC) has you covered for the 12th straight year with the AMC Best Picture Showcase. In what’s become an annual Oscars® tradition for movie-lovers, the AMC Best Picture Showcase lets guests around the country enjoy all the movies nominated for Best Picture, during two Saturdays – Feb. 24 and March 3. Also returning on March 3 at select locations is AMC’s Best Picture Showcase Marathon, featuring all nine nominated movies in one sitting.

The long-running AMC Best Picture Showcase has attracted a loyal fan base, which continues to grow year after year. AMC guests savor the opportunity to see all the nominees in one or two settings, evaluating in real time what movie will take home the biggest prize of the night. Participating locations can be found at amctheatres.com/bps.

“There’s a true sense of community, as so many of these guests come back every year, often bringing friends and family members who are experiencing the event for the first time,” said Stephen Colanero, Chief Marketing Officer, AMC. “At many locations, guests who often only know each other through this event come back to catch up with each other, and watch the best films of the year.”
