Oscar Best Picture Marathon | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Oscar Best Picture Marathon



Need to do a little catching up on your Oscar contenders before the awards are handed out on Feb. 27? Head to Layton for a little marathon viewing. ---

Once again, AMC Theaters nationwide are offering a special deal for those interested in watching all 10 of the 2011 nominees for Best Picture (and, in the process, quite a few of the acting, writing and technical nominees). Locally, that means the AMC Loews Layton Hills, where the event will be split over two days. On Saturday, Feb. 19, beginning at 11 a.m., watch Toy Story 3, 127 Hours, The Kids Are All Right, True Grit and The Fighter, wrapping up at around 9:45 p.m.; on Saturday, Feb. 26, round out the field beginning at 11 a.m. with Winter's Bone, Black Swan, Inception, The Social Network and The King's Speech.

One-day passes for either Saturday are $35, which includes admission to all five films on that day plus a $10 gift card for concessions. A two-day pass is $60, plus two $10 gift cards (one for each day).
