CineMark, which is the two Century theaters in Sioux Falls, has announced marathons of Oscar-nominated films.
Here’s the list and information about times and the chance to get one of 50 free lanyards “while quantities last” (I include that because it amuses me. If you say you’re giving away 50, can’t you order enough “quantities” to make all 50 people happy?).
The movie I most want to see? Amour. The movie time I already have a commitment for? That’s right: Amour.
On Fridays, customers can see ten Academy Award nominated Short films in the Live Action and Animated categories for $10. Then on Saturdays, Cinemark will present five Best Picture nominees on February 16 and the remaining four on February 23rd. The cost per Saturday for all films is $30, or a Marathon pass for both Saturdays is available for $50 for all nine movies. All films will be presented consecutively in one auditorium. A full list of participating theatres and advanced tickets are available now at www.cinemark.com.
