AMC Theatres hosting Oscar nominees marathons in Tampa


If you’re feeling pressured to catch up on this year’s Oscar nominees before the March 2 awards ceremony, AMC Theatres has a solution — but it’s going to take some serious eyeball endurance.

The Veterans Expressway 24, in Tampa, and the Regency 20, in Brandon, will screen all nine Academy Award nominees for Best Picture in two marathon sessions spread over Feb. 22 and March 1.

Tickets for the Feb. 22 showcase, which includes “Philomena,” “Dallas Buyers Club,” “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “12 Years a Slave” are $30. Tickets for March 1, which includes “Nebraska,” “Captain Phillips,” “Her,” “American Hustle” and “Gravity” are $40. A pass for both days is $60.

Both showcases, which run about 14 hours each, start at noon and include a one-hour break around dinner time.

Tickets are on sale now at the AMC Theatres website.
