ickets on sale Friday, Jan. 27 for AMC’s 11th annual AMC Best Picture Showcase

(January 26, 2017) – 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 11th straight year with the AMC Best Picture Showcase. In what’s become an annual Oscars tradition for movie-lovers around the country, the AMC Best Picture Showcase takes place over the course of two Saturdays – Feb. 18 and Feb. 25. Also returning on Feb. 25 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, with some guests avoiding potential nominees completely so they can see them all at once to evaluate 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 with the best films of the year.”
