Maggie reports:
For all you hardcore moviegoers out there, doesn't this sound like fun?

Sat, Feb 23 (Day Before the Oscars)
AMC Movie Theaters

Screening of ALL FIVE Best Picture Nominees!!

Michael Clayton, 11:00 a.m.
There Will Be Blood, 1:20 p.m.
Atonement, 4:20 p.m.
Juno, 7:00 p.m.
No Country for Old Men, 9:00 p.m.

Press release (and list of participating theaters) here.

Now here's the catch. Here in Dallas, I'm safe, but New Mexicans are not so lucky. Despite the fact that two of this year's nominees were filmed in New Mexico, the offer doesn't extend to you because there aren't any AMC theaters in the state. Who's going to lead the charge to, say, Cinemark Theaters to offer the same package in Albuquerque? Someone with film connections maybe, someone who has a bit of a media soapbox? Hmmm....

Calling Gene Grant!
