As they have in 2007 and 2008, select AMC theatre locations across the country will be hosting a special "Best Picture Showcase," where all five movies nominated for Best Picture will be played back-to-back, on Saturday, February 21, 2009.

According to the press release dated January 30, 2009, approximately 97 theaters in 42 markets will be hosting the event. You can purchase an all-day pass for $30, and if you're a MovieWatcher club member, the price is discounted to $25. Guests also will receive a large popcorn with unlimited refills for the entire day. Tickets became available on Friday, January 30th and space is limited, so be sure to check out the showtimes page and purchase your tickets quickly!

When you purchase the all-day pass, you will receive a souvenir lanyard, which will feature artwork from the five nominees and it will give you the freedom to come and go throughout the event as you please. This is convenient, as you may not be interested in seeing all five and you don't have to worry about getting back in if you want to skip one of the movies.

This is the third year of the series.
