Do you love movies? Do you make it a point to see all of the movies nominated for Best Picture, BEFORE the Oscar ceremonies take place? Regal Cinemas has created the "Best Picture Film Festival Pass." You pay $35 and then you can see each one of the Best Picture Nominees.

Here is a bit more info from Regal Cinemas website:

  • Film Festival runs Fri 2/17 – Sun 2/26
  • $35 buys you all nominated films for 10 days leading to Oscar Sunday!
  • Best Picture Film Festival Pass allows guest access to select showtimes in the festival schedule
  • Festival pass holders must visit box office each visit to use their badge to secure tickets and seats prior to each show time
  • Non-pass holders may purchase tickets to any Best Picture Film Festival screening at regular admission price
  • Crown Club members will also get a special $5 consession combo which includes a small popcorn and soft drink.

There are specific show times that you can use this pass at. Here is the complete list of days and showtimes. Tickets will also be available to purchase for these films and showtimes at regular prices (if a friend wants to join you for one, but not all of the movies).
