Preparing for the 2015 AMC Marathon

The Oscar AwardI don’t know if some of you reading this blog are movie buffs the way I am, but the Oscar nominations for the 87th Academy Awards come out on Wednesday, Jan 14th. What that means is that AMC starts planning their annual AMC Oscar Best Picture Marathon.

Now, there’s only three AMC theaters in the area that do this…but they’ll run a special 2-day marathon (on consecutive Saturdays) where you get to see ALL of the Best Picture nominees for one low price (well, actually, one price for each Saturday). For example, last year I got see four nominees on one weekend, and the remaining five the next weekend. If interested, let me know…’cause I’m doing it again this year with a few of my friends. And tickets go FAST…

    Seriously, Day 1 is on February 14th.

    Valentine’s Day.

    What corporate moron thought that was a good idea? I mean, really, how many movie buffs can escape the clutches of a romantic holiday FOR AN ENTIRE DAY OF MOVIE VIEWING?
