Movie diehards, your days have come. The AMC Best Picture Showcase Oscar marathon is set for two weekends this year in order to fit in all 10 nominees for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.

Pay one price, $60, and you can see five movies on Feb. 27 and five movies on March 6 at at the Woodinville theater, with free popcorn (and refills) and a souvenir ticket on a lanyard, which allows you to come and go both days.

The new deal this year is that you can go to www.AMC Entertainment.com/BPS before 9 p.m. Sunday and vote for the four movies you’d like to see along with “Avatar” (in 3-D) on the first Saturday, Feb. 27.

Your choices are “The Blind Side,” “District 9,” “An Education,” “The Hurt Locker,” “Inglourious Basterds,” “Precious,” “A Serious Man,” “Up” and “Up in the Air.” So vote now, then watch for the results in Tuesday’s Good Life section.

Tickets will go on sale Friday: $60 on the AMC Web site for both days and $50 at the box office. A one-day pass is $30. AMC Movie Watcher members pay $40, at the box office only, for a two-day pass and $25 for a one-day pass.

The Woodinville theater is at 17640 Garden Way. Call the theater with questions: 425-482-6538.
