See all 9 best picture Oscar nominees at Las Vegas theaters

Updated February 22, 2018 - 1:58 am

Feel like you’ve missed most of the nine films nominated for best picture at next weekend’s Oscars? That’s understandable, unless you’ve had plenty of time on your hands since Thanksgiving.

Aside from “Dunkirk,” which was released July 21, and “Get Out,” which came out all the way back on Feb. 24, 2017, “Lady Bird” has been in local theaters the longest, and it just arrived Nov. 17.

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” followed five days later. “Darkest Hour” and “The Shape of Water” didn’t show up until Dec. 22. “The Post,” “Call Me by Your Name” and “Phantom Thread” waited until this year to earn wide releases, with the latter two finally hitting theaters Jan. 19.

To help you have any idea what’s going on during the March 4 Academy Awards, three theater chains are offering passes to see all nine nominees for $35.

The Regal Best Picture Film Festival will show each nominee four times between Friday and March 4 at Aliante, Green Valley Ranch Resort, Red Rock Resort and Sunset Station. Cinemark’s Oscar Movie Week, offering two chances each, runs Monday through March 4 at South Point.

And AMC’s Best Picture Showcase is marathoning four nominees Saturday and five March 3 at Town Square.
