So this past Saturday I had the opportunity along with my buddy JJ aka vivid13 to be part of an awesome event called the “Best Picture Showcase” put on by AMC.


Basically the concept is all 5 movies nominated for best picture for this years Oscars shown in 1 day, add unlimited popcorn, tons of movie geeks and you have an awesome event on your hands.

I did a little recap video with some input from others who attended so check that out below:

As I mentioned in the video I had an awesome time at the event, AMC put on one heck of a movie marathon and I cannot wait until next year to do it all again!

For some extra coverage of the “Best Picture Showcase” check out all the tweets tagged #amcbps from all over the country, as well as my fellow kc geek shane with his blog post running down the showcase and movies as well as his flickr pics of the event.

So did you go to the event in your city? What was your experience? Maybe you didnt but you saw the movies…what was your favorite? Let me know.


Well today is the day for the AMC “Best Picture Showcase”. 13 plus hours of fun, unlimited popcorn and 5 movies nominated for best picture this year at the Oscars.

You can follow my day at the event on my twitter, brightkite, friendfeed, and facebook streams. Gotta love social media!

Besides promoting the event I plan to live blog while I am there (no shocker there huh?), as well as what I thought of the movies or which was my favorite. Should be a good time!

So you say you are interested in attending the event? Then head on over to the AMC website and see if there is a theater in your area participating in the showcase and then purchase the tickets online.
