Plano-based Cinemark theater chain hosts Oscars-themed movie marathon
The Cinemark movie chain is giving movie buffs an opportunity to brush up on the Oscars.
Plano-based Cinemark Holdings, Inc. will host its annual Oscar Movie Week festival, this year running from Monday, March 6 through Sunday, March 12, in anticipation of the 95th Oscars ceremony, which airs on March 12 on ABC.
The theater chain will air all of this year’s Best Picture and Best Live Action and Animated Short Film nominees, at more than 120 participating Cinemark theaters nationwide.
According to a release, passes are now on sale now at Cinemark.com/movieweek.
A full Digital Festival Pass is $40 and includes showings for all Best Picture and Best Live Action and Animated Short Film nominees. There's a perk! If you purchase a festival pass, you get 50 percent off any size popcorn during Oscar Movie Week.
Individual showtime tickets will be available starting January 27 at standard pricing, with showtimes beginning March 6.
All Best Live Action and Animated Short Film nominees are bundled into one viewing for just $10 from March 10-12.
