AMC Theatres Teams Up With Tilt to Host Ninth Annual Best Picture Showcase; Allows Guests to Select 24-Hour Marathon Locations

2002_221twodaybps-day2img_B9C0For the ninth straight year, AMC Theatres is bringing all of this year’s Best Picture nominees to its locations for the AMC Best Picture ShowcaseSM. Since 2007, AMC has offered guests the opportunity to see every movie nominated for Best Picture by the Academy of Motion Picture of Arts and Sciences for one great price. The traditional AMC Best Picture Showcase will take place over the course of two Saturdays – February 14th and February 21st.

Also back by popular demand this year, but with a twist, is the AMC Best Picture Showcase 24-hour Marathon, which shows every movie nominated for Best Picture in less than 24 hours, right before the Oscars. This year, in addition to the six locations already announced, AMC has partnered with crowdfunding platform Tilt to allow guests the option to bring a Best Picture Showcase Marathon to their favorite location.
